Reading rolled over as Bassett turn on the style

Corinium Stadium, 19th November 2014

This time scoring four goals was enough for Wooton Bassett Town to claim more than just a point at home against Reading Town.

A strong overall display from Paul Braithwaite's team saw them bounce back from Saturday's disappointing defeat with a flourish as they thumped their Berkshire visitors 4-1.

Bassett did have to come from behind to win though, as Carl Davies had put Reading in front with his team's first chance of the game after twelve minutes.

That goal, however, had come after a fast start from the hosts, who spurned three good opportunities early on.

And less than quarter of an hour after conceding, Bassett deservedly levelled things up. Dan Bailey picked up the pieces from a corner and struck a low drive that the Reading 'keeper could do little to keep out at his near post.

It was the Reading stopper who was keeping his side in the game as Bassett piled on the pressure, but an own goal - after initially making three fine point-blank saves - with six minutes to go before the break eventually put the home side in front.

Steve Yeardley claimed the third shortly after the restart, although man of the match Bailey, whose cracking thirty yard effort deflected in off his captain's back, probably deserved most credit for staking out a two goal advantage.

Victory was then made certain in fine style. Good build up play from Tyler Sheppard created an opening for Nathan Gambling on the edge of the box and his powerful shot found its way into the back of the net via the crossbar.
