Feisty fifteen sees Yellas claw back win

Ascot United found themselves 1-0 down heading in the break but goals from Brendan Matthew and Kai Walters see the Yellas nab all three points at full time.

A scramble in the box with barely a minute played almost saw the Yellas one up but no one could quite make anything of the chance and moments later a soaring freekick was sent into the Yellas box with Kai Walters unable to get his feet underneath it.

A Broadfields freekick drew a corner for the visitors but they were unable to make anything of the chance and it flew over the goal. The Yellas found themselves with a chance again with just ten played as Sean McCormack sent in a corner and Marcus Mealing was able to chest the ball under control but a goal line clearance by the Broadfields defense denied the number nine a goal.

No sooner had the Ascot chance happened, Broadfields were on the attack but quick feet from Mealing sent the striker the wrong way and he was able to switch the play back the other direction.

Twenty minutes played and Ascot were on the attack once more as a Mealing ball found the head of Harry Grant but Caolan Doyle-Creamer saved with ease and the same again as Mealing found Brendan Matthew five minutes later. Walters with the Yellas next chance as a Jordan Ajanlekoko ping allows him to weave into the box, but the chance is lifted too high.

Against the run of play perhaps, Broadfields took their chances and a chance it was as Donte Thompson-Prempeh rifles the ball at goal from the left and it fizzed past a diving Ashdown. An ambitious attempt by Rahim Jude-Boyd just before the whistle flies over the bar and the referee called time.

HT: Ascot United 0-1 Broadfields United

Broadfields looked to maintain momentum off the bat and forced Ashdown into an early save but the Yellas notched up their attack in the second half to claw back the goals.

McCormack making the most of some freedom down the wing drove chance after chance forward, first to find Grant in the box but his effort clipped the post before being flagged offside. A Lalustani run searching for Matthew evaded the goal, before McCormack drew a foul close to the 18 yard box and the Grant effort was easily collected by Doyle-Creamer.

And so prompted a frenzy of efforts that saw the Yellas take all three points. 79 minutes played and a ball from McCormack found Matthew who was able to squeeze through the defenders and slot the ball into the right hand corner. Just a minute later and Kai Walters bountiful run downfield saw him evade the Broadfields midfield defense before calmly dodging the keeper and send the ball across goal to put the Yellas ahead.

Five minutes into added time and the final Yellas attack saw Ashdown punt a ball upfield into the path of McCormack where he was able to send the ball into the box for Matthew to pounce with his strike richocheting off the posts and in to make it three.
