WITH the referee showing concern about a wet and heavy centre of the pitch, he eventually gave the go ahead, and only the home 'keeper prevented Allington from taking a commanding lead in the opening 10 minutes.

First he showed good reflexes as he turned away a pile driver from Simon Hannaford, then when he was going the wrong way from a deflected shot, he changed direction to turn the ball around the post.

With Allington really piling on the pressure, he pulled off another first class save to deny Dan Bowles' close range header from an Andy King cross.

Having so much possession it was important Allington scored and Hannaford obliged when he burst through to drill a low shot across the 'keeper into the far corner.

At this point Allington seemed to drop the pace, allowing the home side to get into the game.

However, with Matt Duffy winning most of the aerial balls, aided by central defensive partner Neil Weeks and covering full-backs Craig Tucker and Jamie Batchelor, who both got forward to support the attack, the home side got no joy.

In the second half, Allington were still dominating most of the play, especially in the centre of midfield, where Andy Weeks, Steve Weeks and Bowles worked tirelessly in a heavy cutting-up middle of the park.

A swift passage of play ended with Hannaford slotting a great ball through to Andy King, who drilled the ball home for goal number two.

With the home side frantically defending Allington's swift attacks, Ben Robey slotted home the third goal in a goalmouth melee.

The home side got a late consolation goal from a harsh penalty decision, but it didn't dent a fine performance in difficult conditions.
