WRINGTON reserves welcomed Portishead to the Recreation Ground for their second home game of the season, looking to continue their unbeaten start to the season.
The home team started brightly, with Joe Moore having several chances. Rouvrais won two headers from corners by Kyle Selman, but was unable to guide them on target.

Rouvrais was replaced at half-time by Callum Briggs and both Briggs and Curtis made adventurous runs forward early in the second half, the latter shooting tamely at the keeper after good link-up play with Vowles.
Selman and Johnson tormented their opposite numbers with pace and skill, and former captains Nick Buck and Mick Edmunds took turns in protecting the Wrington defence.
