Stratford Go Home With Play-Off Hopes Still High

By

Town deserve praise after seeing off United

Two second-half goals were good enough for Stratford Town as they eased to a quite comfortable 0-2 win, after a good 15 minutes from United the visiting side were kept at bay by a busy home keeper Fogg who denied Creaney with one great save from close range that looked to be nailed on for a goal for the ex-Bedworth forward and the home keeper was fairly busy.
Bedworth had a few bright moments but lacked as too often that killer instinct when in on goal, something that has cost them dearly this season, after 32 minutes Creaney was guilty of missing a free header when 8-yards out he managed to angle his header wide of the post and the half ended goaless.
Within three minutes of the second-period United were once again under pressure, a low one-handed save from Shariff by Fogg should have set the alarm bells ringing and 60 seconds later Creaney punished his former club after a disastrous defensive error saw him able to create space to finish with an angled shot to give Town the lead.
Alex Troke should have done better when in on goal his under-powered strike going straight to Etheridge in Stratford's goal, then United's luck was missing again when Parrott drove his shot from 18-yards off the foot of the post.
Ten minutes later the game was taken away from The Greenbacks when Wilson headed in unchallenged to make it 0-2, a poor day at the office was summed up in the latter stages when Rowley rushed his shot and only scuffed the ball into the hands of Etheridge and Blackmore was shockingly dismissed by referee Walker for a 'second-yellow' when he was fouled by Creaney.
Stratford strolled over the line with the final eight minutes of play seeing them enjoy plenty of possession with some exhibition type touches thrown in.
Bedworth's lack of firepower seeing them beaten once again.
