Express and Star Match Report 23rd November 2015
The Lockmen produced their best spell of football this season to overcome a half-time deficit by hitting three goals in nine minutes to ultimately win the game. The visitors had the first chance when William Mohan fired curled an effort just wide in the first minute before the home side went onto dominate proceedingsRoss Clarke glanced just wide, Kieran Robinson directed a shot straight at the keeper befoe he headed just off target on 16 minutes. However, veru much against the run of play, Wellington netted two good goals in five minutes. First on 19 minutes when Adam Newbury fired in a brilliant low shot that flew in after The Lockmen had failed to clear a cross properly then on 24 minutes when a break down the left saw Zac Sirrell receive the ball and he too fired hard and low into the corner. Matt Dorgan saw a shot deflected for a corner and Ross Clarke saw a low effort blocked on the line as the Lockmen dominated mostly without finding a breakthrough.

A double substitution followed at the break for The Reds and it worked wonders when one of them, Callum Foster, picked up a loose ball on 48 minutes and held off a defender to fire low under keeper Matt Asperley’s body. Two minutes later Foster almost found the leverage to lob over the keeper but he caught the effort at full stretch. A goal of the season contender followed on 54 minutes when Adam Holliday picked up a loose ball near the centre circle, looked up and lobbed Asperley perfectly as the ball dipped inches under the bar for a sensational finish. Three minutes later sub Corey Pearce opened his Lockmen account when he chased a long pass to the edge of the area, held off his defender as he raced to the corner of the six yard box before pokng past the keeper under severe pressure for what would turn out to be the winner. Foster then saw another effort blocked before Welly picked up their game and pounded the home goal but apart from Jaihon Sedgley blocking an 82 nd minute effort on the line and a scramble from a dropped cross, the visitors failed to test Ben Holden in the home goal for all their pressure.
