MATCH REPORT: WINCANTON TOWN VS BISHOP SUTTON

A consecutive home game for Wincanton saw them welcome Bishop Sutton to Moor Lane for another Toolstation League contest. With both teams coming into the game following narrow defeats, they were looking to get their season back up and running again. 

 

Bishop Sutton had the first chance with a volley that went just over Jack White's goal. Wincanton also had two chances from Connor Williams but he failed to find the net from two heading opportunities. It took until the half hour mark for there to be a break through when Sutton's number 3 made a run down the left wing before cutting inside and curling it into the top right corner. Although makeshift keeper Jack White got a firm hand onto it he failed to stop Bishop Sutton taking the lead. 

 

Wincanton responded well as a low shot from Dan Wise moments later troubled the Sutton keeper as he palmed it away. The following corner saw two blocked shots in quick succession before Sutton managed to clear it out of danger. Just before half time Wincanton finally pulled it level as Tom Morris managed to wiggle through the defence before slotting into the bottom corner. This meant that it would go into half time all square. 

 

The second half was a lot quieter than the first half as Wincanton had one half chance but nothing came of it. Then with 11 minutes of normal time remaining a counter attack saw a low driven ball across the box be hit home by Tom Morris to get his second of the night. This meant that Wincanton finally took the lead and a well deserved one. This sparked both teams into action again as soon after Kieran Davis had a shot deflected over the bar. Bishop Sutton also had a string of attacks as they slowly built the pressure but the Wincanton defence dealt with it well as they were able to hold on a take all three points. 

 

Next up Wincanton are back on the road as they travel North to high flying newcomers Malmesbury Victoria this Saturday for a challenging game.
