Bassett Roll Over Rocks

Rylands Way, 21st November 2009

Neither visitors Tytherington Rocks nor the driving rain could put an end to Wootton Bassett Town's unbeaten streak as they romped to a 4-1 victory over the Bristol-based side, despite falling behind.

And it was something of a freak of nature that caught 'keeper Stewart Thompson out as he was beaten by a goal kick from his opposite number.

However, from there on out it was all Bassett.

Andy Philpott – on his home debut – scored two goals either side of half time, his second in particular being one of quality, and if he can continue to reproduce such form he will be more than an adequate replacement for the recently departed Alex Green.

Sam Collier then propelled himself up the top scorers chart with a quick fire brace in the latter stages of the game to move him back up to five for the season after his strikes against Harrow Hill were wiped from the record following their withdrawal.

Victory moved Bassett from seventh into fifth thanks to Easington Sports and Letcombe not being in league action. What's more, Dave Turner's side still have two games in hand over those two sides meaning they are finely poised to put distance between themselves and those behind them in the coming weeks.

Without a defeat in the league since the rather forgettable loss at Cricklade at the beginning of September, momentum in the league is being gathered at a fast pace.
