Millwey Rise win well at Pymore

No one can take away from Millwey Rise their ability to hang in there on a very reduced player availability as was again the case in their 3-1 win at Pymore, writes Dick Sturch.
After several late withdrawals the team was again reduced to a bare eleven, but what an impact they had in the first thirty minutes of this game.
Playing fast, flowing football they swept into a two goal lead. The first was a well directed Keith Forsey header from Nathan Wormsley`s precision cross. The second scored by a Zak Meaker strike running onto a Matty Lewis free kick.
For most of the first half Millwey dominated the game allowing very few opportunities for the home side to reduce the arrears.
In the second half the game completely changed with Pymore playing well above what their lowly league position would suggest.

With numerous Pymore forays on their visitor`s goal it was inevitable that they would eventually penetrate the defensive wall, but It still took a great shot from outside the area to reduce the arrears.
After being under sustained pressure Millwey had a slice of good fortune in the last quarter when Mark Pike latched onto a goal keeping error to increase their lead with a shot that went in off the post.

This was an all round team effort and it is difficult to identify any particular Millwey player other than saying the back four were probably the difference between winning and losing.
