Shepdhed Dynamo 1 AFCW 2

A late goal by Mitchell McDonald helped AFC Wulfrunians secure a third consecutive win, as they took the long trip to Butthole Lane to face Leicestershire side Shepshed Dynamo.


Jamie King had the first chance of the game for Wulfs. He ran onto a flick by Liam Bood, only to drag his shot wide from the edge of the area.


Some good work by David Howells saw the visitors go ahead after 15 minutes, as he won the ball off David Hind on the edge of Dynamo’s area. His shot was parried away by Liam Mitchell, but Bood was on hand to fire home the rebound.


Dynamo could have levelled just before the break as Levi Porter pounced as Jono Brown failed to hold on to a corner under heavy pressure. Thankfully for the Wulfs goalkeeper, Howells was in position to block the effort on the line.


Jake Sedgemore’s long range effort was the only other action of the half, but his testing long range effort was well dealt with by Mitchell.


The hosts came out of the blocks quickly in the second half and levelled after just eight minutes. Brett Darby’s cross was met with a mishit shot by Steve Towers, but he managed to regain control of the ball for long enough to poke past Brown.


King should have immediately regained the lead for Wulfs- as Bood put him in behind the defence- but his shot with his weaker foot flew well wide of the post.


Wulfs finally got a winner in the final five minutes. Rich Palmer floated an excellent ball into the box from the left hand side and substitute McDonald snook in behind defender Alvin Jarvis and volleyed home past Mitchell.


This result means that Wulfrunians have now won four out of their last five away games. Next Saturday sees the first game of 2015 at the Castlecroft Stadium, as Wulfs looks to continue their winning ways against Tipton Town.


AFC Wulfrunians line up: Brown, Perks, Jones, Sedgemore, Hill, Asbury, Howells, Palmer, Gregg (Brown 61), Bood (McDonald 61), King (Webb 80).
