Wilson on the double to down Crusaders

Another Scott Wilson double – taking him to five goals in the last three games – saw City complete their away league campaign with a 2-1 win over Hungerford Town at Bulpit Lane this evening. The already relegated hosts started the game brightly but – playing down the slope – City soon began to take control and opened the scoring on 31 minutes. Dan Hayfield’s low cross just evaded Tom Smith but the ball was recycled by Elliott Frear and he set up Wilson to smash a shot into the roof of the net from six yards out. Seven minutes later it was 2-0 as Jack Batten was bundled over in the box by Boachie and Wilson confidently dispatched the penalty kick. Hungerford pulled a goal back eight minutes into the second half when Fernandes stole in-between Max Harris and Batten to stab the ball home. Former City player Ryan Jones then saw his free-kick tipped onto the bar Harris as the Crusaders sensed an unlikely comeback. Having weathered this storm City fashioned several chances to restore their two-goal advantage but it took a stunning stoppage time save from Harris – turning Rollison’s shot wide – to secure the three points for the Romans.
