The Lambs had a frustrating first half where they created several openings but failed to break down a resolute Sticker defence. The visitors were restricted to counter attacks with winger Hooper always looking dangerous with his pace. Booth Dan Evans and Lewis Daw saw fine headers from corner kicks go inches over the bar. Josh Grant then had a thunderous shot blocked by a defender.
The Lambs were finding it difficult to break down a blanket defence, the slow tempo of their passing was allowing the visitors to get into its defensive shape, and when they did look like creating something their efforts were blocked by the defenders. This resulted in a goalless first half.
Manager Stuart Henderson must have had a few words during the break as they opened the scoring in the second minute of the second half, when from a free kick taken by Tyler Elliott saw Lewis Daw rise and head home from eight yards.
Four minutes later the Lambs doubled their advantage, a fine run and cross by Josh Robins, found Reece Shanley who calmly fired the ball home from twelve yards.
Just before the hour mark the home team added a third goal when another fine passing move saw Jack Crago provide the perfect ass for Tyler Elliot flash the ball into the top corner of the net.
With fifteen minutes remaining Josh Grant and Jack Crago exchange passes to open up the defence for Grant to power the ball home.
The Lambs were now in complete control and had it not been for a fine goal keeping display by Elwell, making a number of fine saves to deny Grant, Crago, and Daw, then things could have got even worse for the visitors.
This result means the drama continues in an enthralling race for the title, three massive must win games remain in an incredible season.
The Lambs really showed their metal with a fine second half performance that blew the opposition away. There were a number of really good performances but man of the match was Reece Shanley, for his great all round performance, his desire to get forward and score a really good goal.
Manager Stuart Henderson said ” Really pleased to secure three points against a resilient Sticker, who competed well. Well done to everyone involved on a fine second half performance where our players expressed themselves and played with freedom and movement “.
