Croydon in superb win over Egham Town

CROYDON picked up all three points with a 4-2 victory over league leaders Egham Town last Saturday.

It was the visitors who took the lead after 36 minutes through Jamie Read, but Croydon equalised shortly into the second period thanks to Sean Rivers' firm header from Danny Davenport's cross.

But Egham restored their lead moments later when Brendan Matthews found the top corner.

The hosts sent on Josh Cover, who had a hand in Croydon's next three goals. He scored the second equaliser just after the hour-mark with a fantastic shot from the edge of the box, before his corner led to the Trams taking the lead for the first time in the match.

Cover's corner dipped mercilessly into the middle of the goal area and Read headed in to his own net this time. It was a bit of luck that the Trams' general play deserved.

Cavell Poleon came on for Ryan Fowler for his home debut and he seemed to be at the heart of every move, including a chance for Karl Doughlin, but the ball hit a divot as he struck it and his shot went just over.

But in added-on time, Poleon got his reward when some slick interplay with Cover saw him nestle a shot in the net and confirm Croydon's superb win.
