EASTLEIGH striker Ollie Dennett had a dream debut on loan for Blackfield & Langley on Saturday.

The 20-year-old Spitfires Academy graduate struck a timely winner as the Watersiders kept their Evo-Stik South One title push on track with a thrilling 3-2 victory at ten-man Cirencester Town.

Blackfield recovered from 1-0 and 2-1 down thanks to two-goal Ade Olumuyiwa before the Centurions had Alan Griffin controversially sent off for a second bookable offence.

The Watersiders duly seized control against the ten men and Dennett’s big moment arrived on 66 minutes.

Sami Makhloufi ran at the Cirencester defence and unleashed a shot that was parried by the 'keeper.

The ball ran loose and the Eastleigh young gun, who is under contract at the Silverlake Stadium, showed terrific composure to fire home the winner.

It sent the Watersiders back to the top of the table on goal difference, ending Cirencester’s unbeaten five-game run in the process.

Eastleigh boss Ben Strevens was delighted when news of Dennett’s debut goal filtered back to the Silverlake.

“Ollie needs games and I’ve been a bit selfish keeping him in and around it here,” he confessed.

“Tom Bearwish went away and kicked on (at AFC Totton) and we hope Ollie will do the same at Blackfield.”
