Cook's Youngsters Go Back To Top Spot After Success

By Russ Watkin

United's 21s return to winning ways

Bedworth's U21s bounced straight back to something near their best to outgun Leicester Nirvana at The Oval today have slipped up at home last week.
A very strong wind blowing in from the Bath's End of the ground was unsettling for both teams but United adapted a lot better to conditions and they took an early lead when Cook broke clear down the flank and fired in a driven cross-shot that Glover in the Nirvana goal could not hold the ball going to Cooper to give Bedworth the lead.
With Webb, Troup, Johnson and Cook solid at the back the visitors who had the benefit of the wind never got going with the only effort of note coming from Aboulgia who from 25-yards fired over the bar. (HT 1-0)
After the break United took hold of the game with Collins denied after a good run by a last gasp tackle, the home side went two-up after 47 minutes when a Bradshaw corner saw Webb on the back post send a looping header into the net.
Glover in the visitor's goal made a fantastic save from a Harris drive and Bradshaw was also close to adding a third minutes later.
Tetteh burst clear and his angled-shot looked on target but it went agonisingly inches wide but he got a deserved goal after a strong physical run took him into the 18-yard box, he then calmly slid the ball wide of the advancing Glover. (3-0)
Nirvana's first effort on target came in the 75th minute when Wilson fired tamely straight at Bull in United's goal.
Bedworth's Scott had an effort cleared off the line and Glover made another great save from Harris, but a fourth goal soon followed as the influential Downs played in Harris for a composed headed finish.
With 4 minutes left United continued to press forward but had to settle for a comfortable 4-0 win.
The victory seeing them go back to the top of MPL East Division to lead by 1 point with one-game in hand of their rivals Quorn who were held to a 2-2 by FCV Stamford.
