21/01/17 15:00 Dudley Sports 0-4 Bilston Town Community
Another comprehensive away day where, despite a difficult pitch that cut up badly, the lads continued to plug away, played some great football and eventually got the result they deserved and but for an outstanding display by the Dudley keeper, the score could have been doubled or more.
Bilston dominated throughout with skipper Matty Barnett a constant thorn in their side down the right flank until injury saw him limp off midway through the second half.
By the time Mohammed Andrew put us ahead after twelve minutes their keeper had already denied Lewis with a smart save and he continued to keep the constant Bilston barrage at bay throughout the remainder of the half, though he was aided by the pitch, with the players constantly having to dig the ball out of the mud to shoot!
The second half saw no easing of that pressure and after ten minutes Lewis got the goal he deserved, outpacing his marker to calmly slot past the advancing keeper.
Pleasingly there was no let up in tempo and pressure as Mohammed was bossing the middle of the park and relishing the fact, winning every tackle, bringing the ball away to set up further Bilston attacks and, from one such move, Neville capitalised to fire home past the over-worked Dudley keeper.
Still there was no let up and great work between Keighnan and Ryan saw Lewis supply the finish to a slick move for his second and our fourth.
Once again the tremendous travelling support, including John Rooker from South Wales, far outnumbered the home contingent and were rewarded with yet another proud display of Bilston craft ‘n graft (and the blue away kit maintains its magic yet again!)
The lads were a pleasure to watch again today and momentum is building nicely as we approach the tail end of the season.
Dudley Town are the visitors to Queen Street next Saturday with an old players re-union in the bar at 1.30pm, prior to the game – see you there!
