Langford Rovers 4

Clevedon Utd 1

ROVERS kept up the pressure at the top of the Premier League table with their third win of the season over Clevedon and extended their unbeaten run to 11 games.

For the second successive week, Rovers started slowly, but took the lead from a Grant Giles corner which was netted by Ross Neads on half hour.

In contrast to the first period, Rovers started the second brightly, pressing forward and creating early chances for the impressive Joe Ellis and Levi Marlow.

Rovers were peppering the visitor’s goal but to no avail when a break saw Jamie Crandon lose sight of the ball, Clevedon’s striker hitting home past Adi Marshman and James Marshall on the line.

The introduction of Leigh White changed the game. Marshall’s second shot after a rebounding free kick was touched in by Neads for his second before White’s slick run and exchanges saw an inch perfect cross headed home superbly by Marlow.

With Crandon dominating his box and thwarting any serious attacks from Clevedon, Rovers pressed forward and White provided the icing on the cake, crossing for Giles to round off a good display with a neat finish.

Rovers entertain Odd Down Reserves on Saturday, hoping to extend their unbeaten run further.

Banwell 2

Combe St Nicholas 1

ALTHOUGH the hosts were missing several key players, they were able to get back to winning ways against table-topping Combe St Nicholas.

Combe took the lead when Banwell failed to deal with a long ball, Ryan Northmore saved from point back range, but a Combe striker followed up to tap in from close range.

Banwell rallied and Ben Ferris was involved in everything, feeding McKeever who rattled the bar from 20 yards and Adam Abrahams and Ashley Triffit both went close.

Chris Bradley’s through ball found McKeever racing through on goal only for the Combe keeper to come out and flatten him outside of the box, resulting in a yellow card. McKeever found the corner of the net from the resulting free kick to equalise.

Banwell’s back line of Northmore, Tommy Owen, Ash White, Russ Mitch and Chris Price were strong and thwarted anything Combe threw at them.

The second half was a different story with Banwell having the majority of the play and Combe having their keeper to thank for several top saves from Triffit, McKeever and Abrahams.

Banwell were able to make changes introducing Shaun Potter and Roger Mitchell. The winner came from a superb Mitchell through ball which Abrams latched on to, then beat three defenders before smashing home the winner.

TDC man of the match was shared between Russ Mitchell and Adam Abrams.

Banwell visit Wells City this week looking for another three points.
