Banbury United 1 Truro City 2

Banbury made a promising start to this game and in the early stages matched their high-flying visitors. Truro went close in the 7th minute when Shane Krac shot just wide from 25 yards but it would be Banbury who would make the breakthrough on the quarter of an hour mark. A free-kick from wide on the right taken by Thomas Amegnaglo fell to Joel Meade close to the bye-line on the far side of the penalty area. Meade then passed the ball back to Kynan Isaac who took it past two defenders before passing across the goal to Tom Ryan who knocked the ball home from close range. However, United’s lead would last just three minutes. Danny Greenslade over-hit a cross from the left and the ball went through to the far side of the penalty area where Shane White hooked the ball back into the area where Les Afful was on hand to chest the ball home from five yards out. Having equalised Truro began to have the better of the game. In the 35th minute United were indebted to an excellent save from goalkeeper Leigh Bedwell to keep them on level terms. The ball was played into the centre from the right where Isaac Vassell headed it down to Les Afful 12 yards out who passed it back and set up Matthew Wright for a drive from the edge of the area which looked destined for the corner of the net before Bedwell dived low to his right to turn the ball away for a corner. Truro continued to have the better of proceedings early in the second half and took the lead in the 59th minute when a deep cross from the right by Shane White saw Wright rise at the far post and superbly head the ball back across Bedwell into the far top corner of the net. Having gone in front Truro controlled the rest of the game. Banbury “huffed and puffed” but never seriously threatened an equaliser from this point with Kyle Moore in the Truro goal not being asked to make any saves of note to keep his team ahead. United can have no complaints about the result and it is now five consecutive league defeats which leaves them eight points adrift of safety in the Premier Division table.
