Jammers seal the points with late, late winner


Maldon and Tiptree and Brentwood Town fought out a very close encounter which only swung in the home teams favour in the last minute.

Maldon and Tiptree FC v Brentwood Town FC Bostick League One North Saturday 18 August 2018

Jammers boss Wayne Brown made two changes to the starting line up from last weeks game at Mildenhall with Harvey Brown and Shane Cojocarel introduced in place of Oliver Kensdale and Chris Millar.

In almost perfect playing conditions on a fine pitch the home side attacked first with Cojocarel turning and shooting wide from the edge of the area before the visitors Ayrton Coley got down the left before seeing his mishit shot almost catch home keeper Ben McNamara off guard but he managed to just tip the effort round the post. Both sides seemed to prefer playing the ball long up to their forwards with little in the way of short passing football with the result that passes often failed to find their intended target and gave plenty of exercise to the respective keepers to collect overhit through balls. Brentwood's Oluwatobi Joseph did fire in one good effort from 15 metres that Mcnamara saved well low down before the same player did well to get to the left byline before getting a cross over that the home defence just cleared. The Jammers Matthew Briggs got a shot away that was only cleared at the expense of a corner before Luke Holness put a speculative 25 metre effort straight at visiting keeper Rob Budd. Clear goal scoring chances were few and far between with both defences performing strongly and it was not until the 41st minute that a clear opening was made when the home sides Sammie Mcleod played Cojocarel through to go clear on goal but Budd was quickly off his line to just touch the ball away. A disappointing half ended with the home sides Decarrey Sheriff putting a good shot just over.

It looked like Wayne Brown's half time talk was going to be effective as the home side started the second half strongly with a rare good passing move ending with James Shepherd putting a good cross into the far post where Matthew Briggs poked the cross just wide then Jack Cawley's free kick from outside the box was just diverted wide of the post. This proved a bit of a false dawn as Brentwood came back strongly to test the home rearguard again but Coley, after getting down the right put his cross just too high then a right wing corner saw the ball come loose in the home penalty box for Alfie Hilton to see his goal bound effort just cleared from off the line. Brentwood's Joseph then ran at the home defence before unleashing a pile driver that flashed just wide before Ryan Mallett shot over from the edge of the penalty area. As the game moved into its last quarter the visitors seemed to back off the home side and gradually relinquished more and more territory with lively home substitute Olakunle Akinwande proving a real handful with a number of strong runs forward. The home side were denied by the crossbar when Sheriff's shot was blocked out to substitute Chris Millar who fired against the woodwork from close range and saw his effort rebound out to safety then further substitute Callum Anderson turned provider for Millar whose fine shot was well saved by Budd. The last few minutes of the game plus added time saw the home side really apply pressure on the visitors goal and Sammie McLeod freed Akinwande to get a strong shot away that Budd again did well to save before McLeod tried his luck but again Budd was equal to it to make the save. Just as the watch showed the end of normal time Harvey Brown put in a good left wing corner that found the head of Jack Cawley but Budd pulled off a stunning save to turn the ball round the post for another flag kick. Unfortunately for Budd this time he was to be beaten as again Cawley got up to Brown's corner to divert the ball to McLeod who shot low through a crowd of players to the great relief of the home side and the disappointment of the visitors. There was still time for Budd to excel again when he twice thwarted Akinwande as the forward broke through only to see his first effort stopped by a good block by the keeper then the follow up was just forced away from goal.
