With Alfie Plumb beating the full back at will it was only a matter of time before the deadlock was broken. The winning goal eventually came after some great interplay between Conor Maher and Ollie saw Alfie Plumb released and he found Ben Warren on the edge of the box, who calmly swivelled and rifled a sweet shot in to the top right hand corner.

Town: McClean, Hamer, Baker, Ross, Eaton, Poole, Maher, Plumb, Beazle (Love) Warren (Chugg), Airey (Ellis).
