Injury time winner for Town

First published in Local Sport

BRENTWOOD TOWN 3 WITHAM TOWN 2 (RYMAN DIVISION ONE NORTH)

BRENTWOOD snatched a stoppage time winner through substitute Sam Bantick in this classic game of two halves.

Witham had fought back in the last 15 minutes after Blues had dominated the first half and built a 2-0 lead.

After a run of seven successive away matches, Blues looked happy to be back at the Arena and for the first 45 minutes it looked as though they had found that form as they enjoyed a lot of possession and created a number of chances.

Brentwood took the lead in the 22nd minute with a fine finish from Steve Butterworth after a good build-up.

Darren Blewitt scored the second goal in the 33rd minute with a controlled finish from close range.

The fightback started as late as the 76th minute, when Lewis Godbold volleyed home a fine goal in the 76th minute. Seven minutes later Danny Emmanuel set up Watson for the equalizer.

But Seymour broke well down the left in the 94th minute and intelligently picked out Bantick who drove the ball past Sambridge.
