City earn first league win of the season

City, who travelled with just 13 fit players, turned in a terrific performance in the rain at the Woodspring Stadium today to earn their first Blue Square Bet South win of the season.
Yetts scored his 217th goal for City

Goals either side of half time by Kieffer Moore and Stewart Yetton were enough to give City a priceless three points after two successive 1-1 home draws.

Moore scored for the second time in three days when he headed home a free-kick from player-manager Lee Hodges just after the half hour mark and Yetton netted his first of the season after the break when he got his head on a cross from Les Afful.

City's defence then dug deep to keep a clean sheet and secure their much needed first victory of the season.

Hodges was without skipper Jake Ash (concussion) and striker Andy Watkins (groin) and came into the starting line-up himself along with Yetton.

On the bench were just Calron Hall and Danny Carne with City unable to add to their named squad of 16 because of their transfer embargo.

But they shrugged off their off the field situation to earn the win and will be hoping to build on that success when they entertain high-flying Boreham Wood on Saturday (3pm).
