Another great win

A superb second half performance where we scored 5 unanswered goals saw us comfortably beat second placed Llanelli Town.

On yet another night of Sandfields rain and wind we played well in the first half but failed to turn our chances into goals but all that changed after the break. Bradley Flay netted his first league goal  to open our account, Kaid Mohamed scored his tenth with Noah Daley, Sacha Walters and Patrick Finneral completing the scoring.

After a quiet opening Kaid ,Mohamed had the first chance of the game but the keeper dived to turn his shot behind for a corner. Out of nothing Llanelli took the lead on 16 minutes following a throw on the left side. There seemed no danger when the throw was taken finding James Loveridge but his shot from outside the area beat the diving Steve Cann. He had the chance to double the lead on 18 minutes but under pressure from Ben Symons he could only shoot weakly at Steve Cann. Looking to get back into the game Noah Daley went down the right and crossed for Kaid Mohammed but he was adjudged offside and the chance was lost. Again, a right wing cross was whipped across the face of the Llanelli goal but it was too strong and no-one could turn it in. The wind was playing havoc on any long ball which more often than not ended up out of play. On 43 minutes Sacha Walters played a great ball across for Sean Hanbury but his header went just wide.

Lido came out in determined fashion at the start of the second half and Noah Daley beat his marker and squared the ball for Kaid Mohamed but he could only shoot at the keeper. Then on 54 minutes Lewis Holmes met a corner which deflected off the Llanelli keeper onto the crossbar and was cleared but the equaliser wasn’t long in coming. From another corner the ball was played to Bradley Flay who from just inside the area hit an unstoppable shot for his first league goal for the club. We continued to take the game to Llanelli and Kaid Mohammed gave us the lead on 63 minutes. He played a 1-2 in the box with Noah Daley and hit a right footed shot from 10 yards. Three minutes later Noah Daley beat the offside trap to latch on to a long ball over the defence and ran 40 yards and shot past the keeper as he came out. On 70 minutes it was 4-1 following a great team move which involved pass after pass it was left to Kaid Mohamed to set up Sacha Walters who shot over the keeper for possibly the goal of the season. It got even better minutes later when Noah Daley set up a chance for Patrick Finneral and his shot beat the Llanelli keeper for his first league goal of the season. Kaid Mohamed then forced a fine save from the Llanelli keeper to deny us a sixth.
