Wanderers beaten by on-song Robins

Bradenham Wanderers 1, Reepham Town 3

Bradenham's recent good run of results came to an abrupt end at Hale Road on Saturday where visitors the Robins won 3-1.

The early signs of a Reepham victory were there after just 11 minutes when they scored after forcing a corner.

Frost had a chance to equalise after being put through by Forder, but he hit a weak shot past a post.

Another Reepham corner was pushed away by Butters, and the visitors should have increased their lead when a forward scuffed his shot wide.

Melton had a good header saved by the Reepham keeper, but Wanderers equalised on 30 minutes when Bush skilfully curled home a free-kick from just outside the box.

However, it was not long before Reepham were in front again when they scored with a crisp shot after a smart move, and just before half-time they scored a third to reflect their superiority.

The second half was a more even affair, but the visitors still dominated midfield, and this in turn helped to create space for their skilful front players.

Their best two chances went wide, and on 83 minutes Bradenham nearly forced their way back into the game when sub Ashby couldn't quite make solid contact when well placed.

Just before the end Reepham nearly scored again when a forward shot just wide.

It would have been no more than they deserved on a day when Bradenham were definitely second best.

Bradenham, now ninth in Anglian Combination Division One, on Saturday visit Caister, who are two places and four points better off from two more games played.
