AFCW 5 Sporting Khalsa 0

Wulfrunians extended their extraordinary winning streak to 15 games as they romped to a 5-0 victory over Sporting Khalsa. This win allows Wulfs to keep up the pressure on Lye Town in the race for the title.


Wulfs attacked right from the off, Kyle Brady had two efforts on goal after eight minutes. The first he fired straight at Liam Stanton and his attempt from the rebound was acrobatically hooked off the line by Josh Jones.


The first goal of the game came after a quarter of an hour, Michael Robertson crossed in for Tom Piggott, who headed the ball across goal and into Brady’s path for him to finish from close range.


Wulfrunians’ lead was nearly instantly doubled when Liam Wilkinson fired over after Brady had pulled it back to him whilst lying on the ground. Wilkinson had another chance to score when Brady chipped the ball through to him after Piggott had held it up.


Khalsa’s only attempt of the first half came through Jason Wood; his curling effort from long range didn’t cause Danny Tipton any problems as he made a solid save.


Wulfs did eventually extend their lead when Wilkinson rose above Sporting’s defence to magnificently head home Ross Brown’s cross. They added another when Richard Palmer’s attempted pass to Piggot was deflected back into his own path, allowing him clear space to fire in left footed from the edge of the box.


Dean Bennett began to play a prominent role in the game, playing in Piggott on the left – only for him to strike wide – and then linking up well with both Jake Sedgemore and Wilkinson to provide Piggott with a simple volley to further increase Wulfs’ lead.


It was two substitutes that linked up to provide Wulfs’ final goal of the afternoon; Danny Crudgington cutting in from the left hand side to cross for Jack Marsh at the back post – who scored with his first touch of the game.


Khalsa had a very good chance to gain a consolation goal when Danny Campbell went through on goal, only for his effort to be forced away for a corner by Tipton.


The scoreline could have been even healthier for Wulfs, both Dave Asbury and James Skedgel saw efforts bounce back off the woodwork but Wulfs’ impressive goal scoring form continues. They’ve now scored 25 goals in the last six games leaving themselves with an extremely high goal difference that could be vital in the push for promotion.
