Three goals in the second-half saw Lee Driver-Dickerson’s Slimbridge extend their unbeaten run with a 3-0 victory at home to Lymington Town, writes Rob Peck.
A turgid first-half saw the second period come to life when Nathan Dennis picked up the ball inside the Swans box and ran downfield playing in Toumani Sidibe who was brought down in the visitors’ box as he was about the take a shot. The referee awarded a penalty and Sidibe’s low hard kick was saved well by visiting keeper Casey however the visitors failed to clear and allowed Mike Ford to slam the ball home to give the home side the lead.
With only 5 minutes left, Ben Prictor and Jamie Martin linked up on the left with Martin’s cross-field ball finding Thomas in space on the right allowing the forward to control the ball and fire past Casey into the far corner of the net.
In the final moments of the game, a Slimbridge corner was kept close to the flag before McLean played it out to Thomas whose chip in the middle fell nicely to Johan Flo to volley past Casey and seal the game.
