City down Angels in second half comeback

City returned to winning ways thanks to a great second half comeback against Tonbridge Angels at the Longmead Stadium this afternoon. Having been unfortunate to trail at the break they struck back thanks to goals from Dan Hayfield and Alex Fletcher. An early chance for Scott Wilson was well blocked by Wagstaff before Angels keeper Henly produced great saves to keep out efforts by Dan Hayfield and Luke Spokes. However, it was the home side who opened the scoring in the 38th minute, Collins taping the ball home after Ryan Clarke couldn’t hold a long-range shot. Henly again came to his side’s rescue with another fine block right on half-time. After a quiet opening to the second half City began to get on top and the equaliser duly arrived on 63 minutes when Hayfield’s 18-yard shot beat Henly at his near post. And eight minutes later a Chris Lines corner caused havoc in the Tonbridge box and Fletcher managed to stab the ball home despite Braham-Barrett pulling him back. City continued to look the more threatening going forward and Scott Wilson had a great chance to grab a third goal into stoppage time, failing to lift the ball over Henly, but there was no repeat of the late Havant disappointment as the Romans saw out the remaining time to secure a welcome three points.
