Determined performance earns Cirencester the points at Paulton.

  

BetVictor Southern League 2019/20

Division 1 South

 

Paulton Rovers  0 – 1  Cirencester Town

 

Cirencester produced a very disciplined performance on a difficult, soft pitch to return from Paulton with the 3 points as Will Tunnicliff scored the only goal of the game in the final quarter.

 

With the advantage of the slope and wind the home side pressed from the off and ‘keeper Kevin Sawyer had to be alert to push an early free kick over his bar after a wicked bounce but gradually Cirencester began to counter down their flanks for Will Tunnicliff (header) and Nick Hancock (shot) to threaten the Paulton goal. 

Shortly after the half hour Paulton worked the ball forward for David O’Hare to test Sawyer and as the interval loomed they had a series of corner kicks but Cirencester were determined not to concede and nearly opened their account in ‘added-time’ as a Tommy Anderson header was pushed away at full stretch. 

After the break Cirencester pressed regularly with Hancock firing a couple of efforts wide of the target and Josh Nelmes heading a free kick wide of the left post. 

Shortly after the mid-point they finally opened their account as WILL TUNNICLIFF headed a corner kick from the right into the top right corner.     

With only a one goal advantage the home side were still dangerous on the counter but Cirencester kept them on the back-foot as they pressed to the final whistle.
