Wrington Redhill reserves 1 Hutton reserves 4
With both teams having games in hand on the league leaders, the winner of this game really does put themselves in the reckoning and Hutton were definitely quicker out of the blocks. it took a couple of good saves by Danny ‘Mac’ as the stand in keeper to keep them at bay. The pitch was particularly heavy and the slow surface certainly hindered Wringtons passing game. Far too often Wrington could not keep the ball and hence struggled to get into the contest. A mixture of Huttons tigerish pressing, too many touches and poor passing meant time and again Wrington attacks broke down allowing the visitors to dictate the game. However, with Rix, Curtis and Marsh standing firm, chances were scarce until a speculative cross found its way to Robbie Vowles who neatly turned inside and finished coolly with his left foot. Wrington now responded and with Horton escaping down the left on several occasions, both Holland and Flynn had good chances as the ball ricocheted around the area. It was therefore against the run of play that Hutton doubled their lead. Leon Brueford who was impressive in defence all afternoon ghosted in at the back post to head home a well flighted freekick. Just before halftime was a dreadful time to concede and Wrington needed to regroup.
To their credit they came out and dominated the start of the second half with a much better display. Holland and Faulkner got a foothold in midfield and a fine cross from Faulkner found Marshall who headed narrowly over. Horton and Flynn also looked dangerous and Hutton were under pressure. They responded by bringing on Corey Farr who latched onto a long ball that looked suspiciously like offside, which he fired home to all but settle the match. Wrington brought on Dereham and Lee with Lee instantly making an impact feeding Flynn whose cross shot was turned into the net by Brueford who was having an eventful game. Hutton were now out on their feet as the heavy ground took its toll and at times the game dropped to walking pace. It looked for a moment that the home side might have a chance of snatching something. Tired legs meant mistakes all over the field and both sides were stretched but it was Farr who pounced for his second and Huttons fourth which made the result look a lot more emphatic than it was.
