Molesey v Three Bridges – Match Report

Three Bridges were left cursing after they allowed a two goal lead to slip, and they were further disappointed when they heard that relegation rivals Chatham Town had themselves come back from two down in their game!

Three Bridges were clearly the better side in the opening stages and they took a fifteenth minute lead when Alex Rose’s cross was touched by Dominic Toussaint into the path of Abu Touray, who had already had one effort ruled out for offside and had the Molesey contingent crying out for a similar decision this time too!

Tony Garrod dragged a shot wide after some excellent footwork to create the chance for himself, and Molesey at last produced a shot of note midway through the first half with a good effort on the turn by Dre Grobler.

And the half ended with Martin Grant turning away a solid drive by Rhys Paul and then making a great flying save to keep out Grobler’s volley.

Three Bridges for once looked sharp at the start of a second half with Tony Garrod having a shot charged down from Abu Touray’s low cross. Alex Rose had been involved in the build up to that effort, and after 54 minutes he was involved again with a lovely long ball over the top that TONY GARROD took in his stride before lobbing keeper Liam Allen.

Grobler burst through but was denied by Martin Grant, but after.65 minutes Joe Nwoko set up Grobler for a nicely placed finish. Ashley Lodge then shot wide following another set up by Nwoko, who was getting into the swing of the game after an anonymous first half.

Martin Grant tipped over a great effort from Ross Chalke, who then headed over as the resulting corner was delivered by Craig Lewington. But with just three minutes left, Chalke got his reward with an excellent header as Nwoko provided the perfect cross from the left.
More disappointment for Paul Faili and co, but the team insists it will fight on.
