Concord needed a positive result today as Leighwood yellow were level points and game in hand sitting 3rd in Premier Division behind them!
Leighwood had much of the play in the first half and hit the bar from a free kick from the edge of the area! But apart from that the concord defence were not really troubled although Leighwood dominated the midfield area!
But towards the end of the first half and against the run of play, from a rare attack down the left concord forced a corner. swung in at pace by Sam to the near post caused the defence and keeper to get in a mix up that saw Bailey P score from close in. 0-1 half time flattered concord!
But second half and a change to personnel saw Max introduced on the left and Romie up top and Ellis moved inside seemed to shore up the centre midfield area for concord and allowed them to press higher up. That allowed them to attack more freely without losing shape… From some good play down the right concord forced several Corners, and from one of them Sam again sent in deep to the goalmouth by Sam saw Romie attack the ball at the far post to head home nr2…
With only a few minutes to go concord had a another corner cleared to the right and Sam’s cross found Ben on the edge of the box who controlled it and shot back in that went close!
The game ended concord 0-2 winners to take them clear into 2nd spot!
Next week county cup v Shield Academy away!
