Barwell 2-1 Banbury United


United fall to late Barwell comeback

Banbury winless run was extended to four games after a disappointing defeat at Barwell.

After successive goalless draws manager Mike Ford opted to go with a 3-5-2 formation. With Lee Henderson absent through injury Harry Whitehead was recalled from loan at Kidlington to partner Charlie Wise and Ricky Johnson at the back.

Wise had an early chance but headed wide when well placed. However, Banbury did not have to wait long to get on the scoresheet. In the 15th minute, a flowing move starting with keeper Jack Harding saw a John Mills cross headed home by Greg Kaziboni.

There were further opportunities to increase the lead with loan man Mills proving a threat. Most of the home team's best play resulted from Liam Canavan in midfield although he was booked just before the break. In first half added time the home team's Gascoigne and Mills had an accidental clash of heads which saw Barwell needing to make a substitution for the second half.

Banbury could not find the same fluidity in the second period but restricted Barwell mainly to shots from distance. Harding did make one great save from a close range Jahvan Davidson-Miller effort.

Davidson-Miller was to go better than that on 79 minutes when he was allowed too much time and was able to fire home past Harding's near post to level things up. Three minutes later and the game had been turned on its head. Harding was unable to gather a corner cleanly and the ball went into the net off Charlie Wise.

Johnson was pushed up front in a bid to rescue a point but United could not find the equaliser. This was a poor result for the visitors who had looked comfortable for much of the game.

Banbury United: Harding, Whitehead, Martin, Nash, Wise, Mills (Sub Rasulo, 67 mins), Hawtin, Johnson, Diggin, Kaziboni, Finch.
