AFC secure superb win on the road

AFC CROYDON Athletic bagged a fantastic 4-3 victory away from home at Farleigh Rovers on a bitterly cold Saturday afternoon last week. The game was just two minutes old when Farleigh drew first blood as a cross-shot deceived goalkeeper Dean Rose to put the home side ahead.

But the Rams' response was quick and they equalised from the penalty spot thanks to Joe Loyza after Lee Jansen's cross was handled inside the box.

Croydon went on to dominate the first half. Jansen and Edmund Walker, twice, had shots saved by Bull, but Loyza scored again after 32 minutes from a Walker pass.

The Rams continued to create chances in the second half but were unable to increase their lead until on 70 minutes when Walker beat Bull to make it 3-1 via a deflection.

However, ex-Ram David Stevens pulled a goal back on 77 minutes and it seemed to galvanise the home side.

And in the last minute Farleigh launched the ball into the Croydon box, and despite what appeared to be a push on a defender, the ball fell for Davis to smash the ball home from the underside of the bar.

But Richard Thompson had other ideas as he delivered a fantastic ball in from the left and Neil John leapt like a salmon to head home a dramatic winner.
