Match Report: Mangotsfield United v Melksham Town

Town travelled to Cossham Street in confident mood after their breathtaking win the week before against highly fancied Plymouth Parkway.


Town manager Richard Fey kept an unchanged line up as Town looked to maintain their good form and rise up the table.


Mangotsfield started slightly the better on a glue pot of a pitch, which certainly did not help for attractive football. After the Town weathered the early pressure, Melksham started to dominate proceedings and went ahead shortly before half time through a headed goal from Ryan Morgan after fine play by Jake Mawford.


Town went two nil ahead shortly into the second half with a wonderful volley from Albie Hopkins. Town could and should have added a couple more.


With 10 minutes to go Mangotsfield were awarded a penalty which keeper Matt Hall superbly saved. The Town saw out the remaining minutes very comfortably to record another 3 points and moved them up to eighth position in the league.


This Saturday we travel to Hartley Wintney who play in a higher division in the FA Trophy where although the Town will be huge underdogs, they will certainly look to give a good account of themselves.
