Enjoy our match highlights, match report and interactive programme from Tuesday’s impressive victory over previously unbeaten table toppers Dobwalls.
The Gaffer’s Summary
“A really pleasing performance. The theee teenagers in midfield were superb, gave us real quality alongside their energy.
We created chances and looked much more compact at the back. It’s important we build on this now. Our best display of the season.”
The Bridgers put the disappointment of last week’s defeat by St Austell to topple League leaders Dobwalls with a superb performance.
Both sides were determined to gain the advantage in a tight first half, but could not find the killer touch. The home side finally made the breakthrough in the 1st minute of stoppage time when a pass from the left wing found Kyle Flew whose turn and shot saw the ball hit the back of the net leaving the Dobwalls keeper flat footed.
There was still time for Joe Jasper to pick up a yellow card for a nasty looking tackle on Callum Bertrand.
HT: Bridgers 1-0 Dobwalls
The second half started in much the same vein as the first half but all was to change on 62 minutes when Joe Jasper received his second yellow card to leave Dobwalls having to complete the rest of the half with ten men.
It did not take long for the Bridgers to exploit the space an extra man gives. On 71 minutes a beautiful through ball found Matt Lloyd racing into the penalty area where he was unceremoniously brought down, after a quick conversion with his assistant, the Referee pointed to the spot.
Kyle Flew stepped up to send the keeper the wrong way, 2-0 to the Bridgers.
From another pass, Jacob Smale had the chance to make it 3-0, but a last ditch block saw the ball looping over the bar.
The Bridgers were threatening to run riot. They were brought back down to earth though when the visitors got one back on 88 minutes when Kelvin Fyneboy netted.
The Bridgers held out though for the last few minutes to record the win and move up four places to 6th in the table.
