Late equaliser earns a point for Weston

CJ Neate’s late goal saw Weston salvage a point against Imperial.



WESTON entertained Imperial looking to overcome two defeats in as many weeks which has left their season in jeopardy.

Imperial fielded an experienced side which constantly had the better of Weston’s young team throughout the first 15 minutes. Matt Godwin was having a good game in the home goal, but could do nothing about the two goals that were scored from sloppy mistakes.

Weston replied when Dave Beer found Matt Kearsey with an aerial pass, who in turn fed Jake Turner to score his first goal for the club.

The home defence of Mercedes Benz man of the match Paul Ninnis, CJ Neate, Sully, Hector, Duckett and Westcott began to show confidence to move the ball around the back and help to create gaps in within the visiting side.

Against the run of play Imperial scored again to make it 3-1, Weston did not let their heads go down and a fantastic run from Cam Slater found Chris Etchells who fired past the goalkeeper.

After the break, another sloppy mistake led to Imperial re taking their two-goal lead. George Davis started to stamp his authority on the game and he and Beer linked up to find Weston captain Sam Neate inside to D to fire past the keeper.

Weston were now playing against the clock and wave after wave of attacks were nullified as Imperial overloaded their defence. Davis broke free from the Imperial midfield and found Neate again to secure a point from an almost certain defeat.

Weston travel to Bristol and West (3pm) on Saturday, where they will be hoping to eradicate the constant errors and poor discipline.
