An excellent game and an important one as it gave the Wares 3 wins in 4 games after a poor run of form. Ofori with 2 as he continues to be their scourge. It was a merited performance with eh Wares posting 13 attempts at goal with 8 on target compared with 6 attempts and only 1 on target for the visitors.

 

The game started fairly evenly and was reasonable open with both teams having attempts at goal. the Wares then stated to dominate the game and by the 20th minute both Ofori and McGleish had had attempts at goal. It was on the 25th minutes that McGleish cushioned a ball and reversed a ball over the defence into Ofori’s path who with one touch into the space in front of him passed two defenders and made sure his second touch delivered the goods. 1-0. Crawley fought hard to get back into the game and in the late stages of add time get an equaliser form a good move. Just before the whistle for the end of the first half the Wares manage to get another 2 attempts at goal both from McGleish.

 

HT: 1-1

 

For the first 10 minutes of the second half the Wares try to press and push through their dominance. A bit of a battle then ensues with several cautions being brandished about totally unnecessarily which led to McGleish questioning one of the decisions and collecting a ridiculous sin bin in the 67th. The Wares went down to 10 men but this gives them incentive. An inspired substitution in the 70th saw Amoah come off for Page and 3 minutes later Page flicks a header on to a fast moving Ofori who again makes his way passed 2 defenders to slot home from just inside the box 2-1. Crawley then pile on the pressure but the Wares and firm and collect the much needed 3 points.

 

FT: 1-2
