BANANA SKIN AVOIDED

It's now eight games unbeaten for Town following a 4-2 win at Bashley in the Evo-Stik League yesterday afternoon (20 December). Although the margin of victory could have been wider after various chances went begging, it wasn't a comfortable afternoon for the Peacocks against the bottom side, with the game temporarily stopped in the second half due to a nasty ankle injury sustained by Aidan Chainey, the outcome of one of several excessive challenges. Town gained the upper hand from the first whistle and after Jamie Price's header flew narrowly wide, they took the lead after ten minutes when Steve Murray's pass into the box was swept home by Ben Kirk. Aaron Ward-Baptiste then got free on goal but appeared to be clipped as he went to shoot, with Murray's follow-up attempt being kept out by home keeper Callum Maher. After missing a few other opportunities, Town were stunned on 20 minutes when Bashley equalised out of nowhere. A pass down the right was not cut out, giving Clive Makoni the chance to run on and slot past Lloyd Irish for Bashley's first goal in nine matches. This rare strike gave the hosts some new found confidence but Town soon got back into the groove on 33 minutes, going 2-1 up when Owen Irish's free kick was brought down by Graham Mercieca who smacked a fine shot into the net off the post from the edge of the box. Jamie Short extended Town's advantage further four minutes later, receiving a Price throw-in and scything across the area before firing past Maher (pictured below). Price volleyed just over the top as Taunton ended the half well on top and soon had a Ward-Baptiste finish ruled out moments into the second half. Play was then halted following a bad tackle on Chainey who was taken to hospital whilst Brad Morris was fortunate to escape with just a yellow card. Town never quite reactivated after this incident although still created chances, coming closest when Short's free kick was pushed wide by Maher and Price's shot was diverted by the keeper onto the post. Ashley Booker then rifled an excellent volley against the upright when Town failed to clear a corner and when Booker did fire home a loose ball in the final minute a nervy finale might have ensued. However a quick break from Craig Herrod saw him beat Maher who had strayed way out his goal and his pass found Ward-Baptiste whose shot beat the covering defender on the line four minutes into stoppage time to make the game safe. Match report online soon.

Reaction - manager Leigh Robinson said:" Naturally three points are always welcome but I came away with a tinge of disappointment today as the referee completely ruined the game by letting far too much go and this ended up with Aidan getting a serious injury as a result. We're never shy of a physical game but today the referee allowed it to go too far too often. As far as the game goes we should have scored more goals but it was so difficult to get a clean strike of the ball on a very heavy pitch. Job done though and we move on."
