Bedworth Put Lye To Bed In League Cup Tie


Greenbacks respond in positive manner to last weeks loss

The management looked for a response from the squad after a disappointing league loss seven-days earlier and they certainly got one as a dominant United took control from the first-minute of this league cup tie against Lye Town and never gave their rivals a sniff during the 90 minutes.
There were good signs after an early effort from Hilton drifted wide of the post and with Noon pulling the strings in midfield the home side had Lye under the cosh, it wasn't long before the first-goal came, on 8 minutes Cooper strode into the visitors box and was brought down, the resultant penalty calmly slotted home by Noon.
Hilton saw an effort well blocked by Hancocks (GK) in the Lye goal and the strong Cooper was causing problems for a shaky visitors defence who were under heavy pressure.
A second-goal came after 26 minutes, the energetic Swiercz sent Cooper clear who set in Covill to finish from a central position with a placed effort.
Looking to add more goals Bedworth missed a number of chances before adding a third right on half-time, a low driven free-kick from Noon saw Harris on hand to force the ball home from only a few yards out.
Lye had not had an effort on target during the first-half with Bedworth comfortable and leading 3-0.
Early in the second-half Cooper should have made it four, his header being placed wide of the Lye goal, he made amends however on 57 minutes, chasing a ball down and hooking the ball back from the byline to set up Hilton who finished at the near-post (4-0).
Substitute Smith could have scored with his first touch, closing in on goal he finished tamely as his shot was straight at keeper Hancocks, but the pacey forward got his first and United's fifth when finishing some interplay with Hilton after 67 minutes.
A sixth-goal came after Glazieus's shot was well-saved by Hancocks but the rebound fell to Smith to tap home from 5-yards.
It took 84 minutes for the away team to have an effort on goal Sewell was unmarked in the box and in on goal but to sum the visitor's bad day he somehow dragged his shot well wide.
United's total dominance saw a seventh-goal scored on 89 minutes, a good move involving Swiercz and Smith saw them work a chance for Fjodorous who hit a crisp shot well wide of the despairing dive of Hancocks.
United were far too strong for a totally deflated Lye Town who somehow kept the score below 'double-figures' thanks in the main to last ditch defending and a busy goalkeeper.
