a welcome win for witham after two recent defeats , but the going was heavy making it impossible to have a football feast, in fact the game was only on as a result of the work from the grounds staff on friday . witham pressured the visitors goal from the start and for a while dominated the game yet it was h & rb who took the lead when tom collins was put clear and shot past martyn guest with ease. the visitors suffered a blow when sameed sankoh received a straight red when he handled on the line during a goalmouth scramble ,and from the resulting penalty JAMIE GUY scored with a low shot in the 31st minute to equalize
witham took the lead in the 54th minute when JAMIE GUY slotted in a superb low cross from ellis brown, who had received an equally superb through ball from john watson. both keepers saw action , home keeper martyn guest saving from jake rose and mark smith at the other end saving from gut and luke callender. KURK SMITH put witham further ahead with a skill full overhead kick in the 73rd minute , but tcredit to the ten men of h&rb they never gave up , and their captain charlie moone beat guest with a low shot in the 85th minute to make it a nail bitting last few minutes
a very big three points in a quest to remain in the premier division and edging nearer what the 51 point mark which we think will be safe.
