First Half Goal Flurry Sets Bassett on Their Way

Rylands Way, 31st October 2009

Three first half goals set Wootton Bassett Town on their way to victory against North Leigh Reserves, extending their unbeaten run in Hellenic Division One West to seven games whilst more importantly lifting the side into seventh.

Jon Holloway, Chris Oram and Sean Bailey provided Bassett with an unassailable half time lead, and although North Leigh were to find the back of the net in the second half more times than the hosts, an Alex Green strike ensured the final 4-2 scoreline reflected his side's dominance of the game.

A sloppily conceded second goal in injury time aside, the fact this was the second convincing victory on the trot recorded by Dave Turner's side ensures they go into next week's crucial match at home to Easington Sports – who supplied Bassett's last defeat, albeit in the Hellenic League Challenge Cup – with huge confidence.

Earlier in the season, Bassett had been plagued by their inability to find the back of the net, leading to the dropping of points at Cricklade Town and Cirencester United – two teams who Bassett should really have expected to beat.

However, with 14 goals in their last four outings it seems the side have found their scoring form ahead of what should be a tricky stretch of games in the lead up to Christmas against sides such as Saturday's opponents, as well as Tytherington Rocks and Cheltenham Saracens, all of which currently lie above Bassett.
