Weston-super-Mare v Concord Rangers

Weston-super-Mare 1 - 0 Concord Rangers
10 Feb 2018 - 15:00The Woodspring Stadium

Despite the damp conditions at the Woodspring Stadium, captain Jacob Cane popped up to earn Weston all three points in their league clash with Concord Rangers.

Weston had a chance early on when Kennan Dunnwald raced onto a long ball, shifting onto his right foot, his effort rolled into the arms of Louis Wells.

The German was again involved for the only goal of the game, intercepting a pass out and slipping the ball to Cane, just inside the box. With a sweep of the right boot, his effort was dispatched into the far corner, leaving Wells rooted.

Khale Da Costa had a low shot palmed away by Luke Purnell, before Vamos Nasha Jr curled over from 25 yards following a loose Purnell touch as he brought the ball out of defence.

Right-back Ash Harper found himself on the end of a slick Weston move just outside the box, his left-footed shot fired straight at Wells, who held it well, before Gethyn Hill’s shot from a tight angle was kicked away by the Beachboys keeper.

Shaquille Hunter drove wide after beating his marker before being replaced for Tristan Plummer, and Greenslade’s cross skimmed off the bar and away for a throw-in.

An Ash Kington pile-driver was deflected behind for a corner, and from the set piece, Greenslade found the ball 20 yards from goal, but his left-footed effort lacked adequate power and was straight at Wells.

An acrobatic effort by Plummer from a Greenslade cross was narrowly over the bar, as the Seagulls continued to apply pressure, denying Concord any time to play their own game.

Diallo intercepted a pass out from the back, finding Dunnwald who drove towards the box and with men streaming forwards in support, the German saw his shot deflected and out for a corner.

Captain Cane continued to impress, feeding a pass in the channel for Greenslade, whose shot was saved at the near post by Wells, with Weston seeing the game out.

FT: Weston 1-0 Concord (Cane 16)

Weston XI: Purnell, Harper, Greenslade, Cane (C), Pope, Parsons, Hunter (Plummer 58), Diallo, Hill (Lee 75), Kington, Dunnwald (Reid 90+2). Unused substitutes: Laird, Welch.

MOTM: Jason Pope – Popey receives the award for a class display at the back, holding firm against rare Concord attacks and even foraying forward with the ball at times.
