Yate Town 0-1 Weston-Super-Mare
Seagulls fly off with the points
Yate's first attack down the left resulted in Alfie Walker sweeping an effort wide of the angle, before a Weston move ended in a similar fashion after the striker cut in from the left. The home side's crosses from the right caused some defensive anxiety. Luke Henderson saw a shot blocked close in, before Dylan Evans twice latched onto loose balls to strike goalwards, forcing the away keeper into good saves.
Generally though, the visitors linked better and quicker, especially in the final third and they took the lead on 35 minutes. Tom Llewellyn stepped up to lash a direct free-kick in just under the bar, beating James Cook for pace.
Yate swapped keepers, bringing on Mason Hawkins for Cook, and immediately he had to be strong to block, as Weston almost undid Yate with an early pass in the left channel. The visitors took all the steam out of any Yate creativity throughout this half, and always looked capable of nicking another, especially with the influential Llewellyn pulling strings in midfield.
A mazy run created a chance of his own making, but he drove across the face of goal, the game petered out with no further incident, and Weston returned home with the victory.
