The wasps made the trip to Warminster looking to put right a disappointing five days where we had conceded 6 goals in two 3-1 defeats. A shuffled team due to the unavailability of Matt Morley and Dan Barber meant a switch in shape, whilst we were still without the experienced duo of Jamie Stewart and Gary Chapman also. We started very strongly, dominating the early stages and having chances for Andy Mitchell, Danny Golden and Kieran Davis before a lightly headed back pass from the otherwise dominant Lewis Voizey put keeper Dan Cabell in trouble, he came out to meet the oncoming player but bought him down which resulted in a clear penalty, Dan was booked for the challenge when another player on another day could easily have seen red. The penalty was converted to put Warminster 1-0 up completely against the run of play. From here Wincanton bounced back in a very positive fashion, a cross was cleared to the edge of the box and the impressive George Rigby was there to drive home through a crowd of players with his weaker foot and via a slight deflection it beat the keeper to nestle in the net. Wincanton then took the lead a few minutes later, a quick free kick down the right hand side from Dan Wise sent Danny Golden away and his superb cross was met by the ensuing Connor Williams who still had a lot to do but was able to steer it the ball expertly into the bottom corner. It could and should have then been three as Danny Golden then had a headed goal disallowed for offside despite him clearly being in an onside position just before the break. The second half Warminster came out strong and put some pressure on the wincanton goal without having any clear cut chances, this all changed on around the 70 minute mark when a weak strike from the Warminster fullback was parried right into the strikers path from keeper Dan Cabell to gift Warminster the equaliser. What ensued from here was pure grit and determination from Wincanton, firstly to get the next goal, a fantastic threaded through ball from Kieran Davis through to the energetic run of midfielder Tom Morris was met with a low left footed cross across the box and lively substitute Iwan Walters was there at the back post to fire home what turned out to be the winner. In the final ten minutes Wincanton had to endure heavy pressure from Warminster and Dan Cabell made partial amends for his earlier mistake by saving two well struck shots from point blank range. The wasps hung on for the three points in an impressive committed display and we now move on to Saturday's testing tie away at Oldland Abbotonians.
