Wymondham 2, Stratton 3

BACKED by the largest travelling support of the season Long Stratton played Wymondham and despite being rocked by conceding two early goals went on to win - and win well.

Stratton were a goal down within three minutes, a free-kick went through the wall and was tapped in. Wymondham were 2-0 to the good when a corner was headed in.

That was as good as it got for the home side as Stratton began to take control. James Barnes buried a superb free-kick to reduce the deficit and Mark Whitmore made an excellent last-ditch challenge to snuff out an attack.

Controversially Barnes had a “goal” disallowed for offside.

Stratton put in a powerful second-half performance, Ben Cussons was excellent up front, he got on the end of a David Robinson's fine deep cross and crashed a header in.

James Barnes drove forward from the middle of the park fed sub Paul Folkard and he finished well. A seventh win in eight games and a victory that takes them up to second.
