Afan Lido 0 Briton Ferry 3

It was goalless at the interval despite both sides having chances to score. Both keepers made some excellent saves but the game turned on 50 minutes when the referee awarded a penalty to the Ferry. Afterwards despite Lido pressure we were unable to score and former Lido striker Mark Jones made the game safe on 82 minutes and substitute Tyler Brock added a third well into stoppage time.

Rob Thomas should have opened the scoring for the Ferry but somehow from 6 yards fired over the bar. Lido went down the other end and Kaid Mohamed forced Conah McFenton into a good save diving to his left. Steve Cann then made a couple of saves from Mark Jones and Ian Hillier. On the half hour Steve again produced a top draw save from Mark Jones Lido almost took the lead on 36 minutes when a goalbound shot hit a defender and went out for a corner. Just before the interval a great ball inside the full back saw Noah Daley in on goal but McFenton again made a fine save to deny him.

5 minutes into the second half and the Ferry were awarded a penalty, they had a big shout for one earlier which was turned down but on this occasion with little appealing it was awarded and Mark Jones opened the scoring. Lido won a couple of corners in response to the goal but the second was headed over the bar. Then following another period of Lido pressure Noah Daley had a shot blocked with Liam McCreesh firing the rebound over the bar. With 15 minutes to go Patrick Finneral set up a chance for Noah Daley but his shot was again saved by McFenton who pushed the ball out for a corner which Lewis Holmes headed just wide. Ferry then attacked with Steve Cann making a diving save and with 10 minutes to go Jack Hurley brilliantly beat a couple of defenders in the box and crossed for Kaid Mohammed who headed over the bar from inside the 6 yard box. It proved a crucial miss as within two minutes the Ferry increased their lead when the ball was squared for Mark Jones to shoot into an empty net. Deep into injury time Tyler Brock made it 3-0, next Friday we are home to Cambrian and need a top performance to get a result to kick start our season.
