Bridges lose at home

Bridges could not complain about the final result as VCD looked the better side for much of this game, but when Bradley Simms was sent off for a second foul after 73 minutes with the sides level at 1-1, Bridges really should have stepped up a gear and stolen the points.

VCD showed their intent inside two minutes as Malachi Hudson headed against the post and James Shaw denied Charlie Macdonald's follow up with his feet. Shaw was soon in action again as he held a shot from Jack Steventon and then blocked a decent effort from Alistair Gordon.

Bridges' first real chance took 17 minutes to realise as Connor French came close with a volley, but a string of cautions followed for the home side as VCD tried to break quickly.

Against the run of play though it was Bridges who took the lead two minutes before half time when a long ball found the predatory Connor French, who made room for himself to steer the ball inside Joe Mant's near post. Mant was then cautioned for a late challenge on French outside the box with more than a few of the home fans demanding more!

VCD continued to have the bigger share of the chances with MacDonald firing just wide before they earned a free kick five minutes into the second half. Jake McIntyre drove the ball home superbly and within a minute Shaw made a brilliant tip over to deny Domonic Odusanya from putting the visitors ahead.

Bridges continued to battle to their credit and Brannon O'Neill, who had a fine game, saw a free kick pushed away. However, Shaw was the busier of the keepers as his hands were stung by a fierce effort from Odusanya and he then made an excellent block to deny MacDonald.

The dismissal of Simms should have been the signal for Bridges to take advantage, but the game was settled ten minutes from time when the much travelled former Crawley Town favourite Charlie MacDonald rifled an instant volley past a helpless Shaw.
