Larkhall Athletic 2 - 0 Thatcham Town

Five days on from Thatcham’s six-goal hammering of Fleet, the Kingfishers slipped to a 2-0 loss at Larkhall Athletic, with Lewis Powell scoring both.

Larkhall capitalised on a slow start by Thatcham as Powell opened the scoring on 16 minutes. As the first-half wore on, the Kingfishers gradually started to exert pressure on the hosts. Lewis Coyle had a shout for a penalty when he seemed to be pulled back in the box, James Clark forced a good save and Michael Miller advanced forward to volley wide. However the best opportunity came just before half-time when Shane Cooper-Clark played in Andy Jenkinson, but Shaun Semmens made a great block to deny the Thatcham midfielder an equaliser.

Early in the second half Powell made it two for Larkhall when he expertly placed Mason Winter’s cross beyond Paul Strudley, which effectively killed the game off.

Chances thereafter were at a premium. Thatcham were not placed under too much pressure but were unable to create many opportunities at the other end. James Clark caused some problems for the Larkhall defence, but Semmens was able to keep a couple of shots out, preserve his side’s clean sheet and earn Larkhall the win.

Team : Strudley, Miller, Angell, Thomas, Hughes, Downes, Jenkinson, Coyle, Benham, Clark, Cooper-Clark. Subs on : Tennant & Sankoh. Sub unused : Howell
