COLNEY Heath bounced back from their FA Cup exit to secure a 1-0 SSML Premier Division win at Aylesbury United on Wednesday night.

A wet evening at Leighton Town’s ground against Aylesbury saw Heath take an early lead through Kevin Ashwood who controlled a pass from Paul Armstrong and cut his shot across the keeper to score.

Jamie Eames and Ashwood combined a couple of minutes later and Eames won a corner with a deflected shot.

Glenn Draper and Steve Barker combined to keep a shot from ex-QPR man Kevin Gallen out on 22 minutes.

A mistake by the Aylesbury centre back gave Ashwood a chance, but the keeper made a fine save.

Ashwood and Armstrong were combining well and Ashwood went close with another shot after 36 minutes.

After the break Aylesbury hit the bar from a corner on the hour mark with their only real chance in the game.

Ashwood forced the keeper into a fine save on 75 minutes and the Magpies closed the game out for the three points.
