AFCW 6 Bromyard Town 2

Jordan Perks’ sending off was the only negative of another strong Wulfrunians performance as they ran out 6-2 winners over Bromyard Town. After twice being pegged back from one goal ahead, Wulfs eventually took control of the game and stormed through the Bromyard defence.


Wulfs took the lead after just two minutes when Tom Piggott dispossessed Alex Taffe on the edge of his own area before rifling his effort across the goalkeeper and into the bottom corner.


Bromyard were level just 10 minutes later following Devon Smith’s good work to win a corner. The subsequent corner was headed clear, only for Taffe to spectacularly volley past Danny Tipton from 25 yards.


Michael Robertson added a spectacular strike of his own to regain Wulfs’ lead, with his left footed volley from the edge of the area going through Bromyard’s ‘keeper, Matt Ramage. The game was again levelled up after Taffe rolled Ash Millard in for him to slide the ball past Tipton.


Robertson was this time the provider as his through ball for Kyle Brady allowed the striker to fire the ball past the ‘keeper to give Wulfs the lead once again.


Wulfrunians continued to knock on the door of Bromyard’s defence as both Perks and Skedgel had efforts deflected wide. It was Skedgel who implemented the move that led to Wulfs’ fourth, his cross being forced home by the head of Dave Asbury from close range.


Wulfs further increased their lead with a goal on the stroke of half-time- Dave Howells linking up well with Brady to give himself the space to curl a right-footed effort into the bottom corner.


Instantly after the half-time break, Tipton pulled off a magnificent save to keep the score at 5-2- his solid parry away from goal prevented Ben Evans from adding another Bromyard goal.


Brady had the chance to extend Wulfrunians’ lead when Nathan Rose-Laing played an exquisite through ball for him, only for Brady to overrun the ball and be forced into firing just over by Ramage. Brady was let in yet again, this time by Robertson, and this time Ramage denied him with an excellent save.


Wulfs were then reduced to 10 men when Perks was sent off for a collision that occurred on the floor on the halfway line. The numerical disadvantage didn’t faze Wulfs, with them continuing to create chances for the excellent Brady. It was Brady who carved himself out a chance after Jake Sedgemore had played him through on goal before his shot was hit straight into the side netting.


With just a few minutes remaining, Brady had his shot deflected for a corner and from the resulting ball from Sedgemore he headed home to complete Wulfrunians’ victory. Wulfs kept the pressure on Lye Town with this victory, being within just one point of the league leaders after this match.
