Delaney Delivers as Free Scoring Flackwell are Silenced

Rylands Way, 30th October 2010

Ethan Delaney grabbed the only goal of the game to deliver Wootton Bassett Town all three points against free-scoring Flackwell Heath. The win ends Bassett's run of three straight league defeats and means they remain in touch with the sides in the top half of the Hellenic Premier Division table.

The visitors, sixth at the beginning of play, came into the match as fourth top scorers in the division and had scored nine goals in their past two games, including half a dozen in a 6-5 Challenge Cup win against Headington Amateurs last Saturday.

And given Bassett's recent defensive woes - ten conceded in their past three league encounters - most would have expected Flackwell to have few difficulties finding the back of the net at Rylands Way.

However, their arsenal of goal getters, including league leading scorer Danny Jordan, who has averaged a goal a game so far this campaign, were silenced thanks to a stoic defensive display from Dave Turner's troops. In fact, Flackwell's only shot that threatened the hosts all afternoon came from an Adam Paget free kick which rattled the bar.

Putting their recent troubles aside, Bassett more than matched their Buckinghamshire-based opponents, with neither side able to take the advantage in the opening half.

The only goal of the game eventually came in the 75th minute as Delaney found the back of the net with a fantastic finish for only his second goal of the year.

The defence then finished the job, holding out to preserve a valuable win.
