Vanarama National League South
Concord Rangers 0
Poole Town 1
Poole Town complete a late in the day victory over a sorry Concord Rangers side to keep alive their hopes of Vanarama National League South survival.
Steve Devlin’s injury time strike sent the Dorset based club home with the three points.
Concord had little to shout about up front, squandering all the chances that fell their way. Poole on the other hand were very direct and it was paying dividends with Carl Pettefer coming close to taking the lead. His twenty yard strike clattered the crossbar.
The Dolphins were coming on strong in the second half with the youthful Beachboy side doing well to soak it all up.
One good chance fell for Steve Cawley but he struck it strongly and at a good height for Nick Hutchins to save.
The stage was set though for one side to go and steal it, and it was the visitors who did just that. A wonderful low left footed strike hit the bottom right corner to send the away fans into raptures and seal the deal.
