Another win and clean sheet

Three Bridges earned a valuable three points in a well-deserved victory against 9th placed Phoenix Sports. Second half goals from Dean Gunner and Connor French gave Bridges a comfortable victory after a sloppy first half from both sides.

Phoenix looked to have started off on the front foot and they were nearly ahead after just 2 minutes but James Shaw just about managed to keep out Lee Bird’s low shot. Bridges reacted well and had a great chance to go 1-0 up minutes later when Connor French was cleverly played in by Ibby Akanbi but Phoenix keeper Steve Philips saved well with his feet.

A lot of the possession in the first half was based in the middle of the park with both teams struggling to keep the ball and create any dangerous moves. Bridges had the best chances of the half - Akanbi fired down the throat of the keeper from a free kick 25 yards out, Andrew Sesay had a lob attempt well blocked by Phillips just after the 40 minute mark and Olu Oluwatimilehin had a great chance following a corner but Phillips was well positioned again to deny the goal bound effort.

The second half looked to be better for both sets of supporters instantly. A lovely switch by French to Akanbi allowed him to use great skill to skip past 2 defenders and put a dangerous low ball into the area but Phillips got a vital hand to it.

10 minutes into the half Bridges nearly found themselves ahead. Alex Clarke did excellently to win the ball off the Phoenix defence and charge at goal but his poked effort flew just wide of the target. French then came close to netting but his volley, following some pinball in the area, blazed just over the bar.

However just minutes later Bridges got the goal they thoroughly deserved. Alex Clarke chipped a delightful free-kick into the box and Dean Gunner nodded in for his first goal for the club and Bridges' first of the afternoon.

Bridges eventually got the deserved second goal in the 76th minute. Man of the Match, Joe Tennent, won possession and fed in Oluwatimilehin who had space to slide Connor French through and with lots of time he rounded the keeper and tapped into an empty net to see the game off for Bridges.

A late penalty appeal was waved away but it made no difference as Bridges rode out 2-0 winners.
