Witham Town 0 v Truro City 1 (Report from Witham)

after a long pitch inspection the referee declared the game could go on so we had a scrappy game in the muddy conditions ,just edged by truro. they dominated the first half with cody cooke hitting the side netting early in the game , and with witham keeper martyn guest making good saves from ryan brett and craig duff . withams best efforts came in a good spelll just before half time , when after a good run through the city defence ellis brown shot wide and conor mead shot over .
ht 0.0
there was a dramatic start to the second half when martyn guest was sent off with a straight red when hauling down ryan brett craig duff took the resulting penalty and blasted the ball way over the cross bar ,like they do at twickenham and bought a chorus of sweet chariots from the home supporters .Paul King took over the keepers shirt for a while but then sub keeper brad king eventually took over. now down to ten men this seemed to inspire witham and they played well, but after some good attacking moves could not find the finishing shot on target and the visiting keeper charlie burns had an easy afternoon. the all important goal came in the 88th minute when brad king who had previously made a couple of good saves palmed the ball to duff who forced the ball over the line near the far post. witham never gave up and were still attacking in time added on and the pitch held up well.
we wish truro city fc good luck in the next round
