Wellow 1 - St Denys 3

First published in Sport

Wellow started the brighter of the 2 sides, their good passing football opening up the St Denys defence early on.

However, the visitors' more direct and physical approach started to pay dividends as they took control of the game.

The middle section of the first half was a nervous one for the Wellow supporters as St Denys piled on the pressure.

Ed 'The Cat' Barnes turned in a man of the match performance to keep the threat at bay.

However, Wellow started to settle later in the half and again tried to let their football do the talking.

Indeed it was Wellow who took the lead, James Brand drilling in the ball from the edge of the area.

Right on the half time whistle their hard work was wasted, as Wellow allowed St Denys a speculative shot which looped over The Cat to make it honours even at the break.

It was the same story in the second half, Wellow trying to play out of trouble, but being forced onto the backfoot by the St Denys long ball.

The visitors second was a good strike from outside of the area, the 'keeper standing no chance.

Then as the home team tried to force the game the visitors pounced onto a loose ball in the area, following a clash between forward and defender, to put the game out of Wellow's reach.
