Beaconsfield Town v Weston super Mare

Beaconsfield Town 2 - 2 Weston super Mare
01 Feb 2020 - 15:00Holloways Park

Ten-man Weston drew 2-2 away at Beaconsfield Town.

Scott Laird was in the right place at the right time to clear a Luke Neville shot off the line from a corner, before Ade Shokunbi drove wide from 25 yards. James Ewington scooped a shot over the bar from inside the area after being played through.

Beaconsfield took the lead when winger Louis Stead collected a loose ball on the wing, and his curling cross beat everyone inside the area and nestled in Luke Purnell’s far corner.

Mike Symons had a header cleared off the line by Jordan Ajanlekoko after Dan Martin stood a cross up to the far post, and Stead had a shot from 25 yards go just over the bar after cutting inside.

After the interval, Lloyd Humphries had an effort from 25 yards hit the bar and go over after Symons had knocked the ball down to him, and Nick McCootie had a header go over the bar after a Laird cross had deflected through to him. Hendy was next to go close, but Hafed Al-Droubi tipped his shot onto the bar and out for a corner.

Weston grabbed an equaliser when a deep Sam Avery free-kick was flicked on by Symons, and midfielder Chris Knowles brought the ball down on the edge of the box and finished with aplomb into the corner.

The Seagulls quickly went and grabbed a second when a long ball found Symons down the left wing. The forward took his time before whipping a cross onto the head of Brad Ash, who powered in a header from six yards.

Weston found themselves reduced to ten men when Laird was shown a straight red card for handball on the line. The referee pointed to the spot, and Charlie Losasso duly obliged by converting the spot kick to share the spoils between the sides.
