Holbrook 1 Lavant 2

Lavant continued their recent good form with this away win. The 2-1 victory was cemented in dramatic fashion as Dave Knight poked home a late winner after debutant Tom Haslam’s shot struck the woodwork.

The game started poorly for the away side as yet another penalty was conceded, this time Jon Wright the culprit. The spot-kick was dispatched and Holbrook were ahead at the break.

A Lavant revival came after the break as James Sandford was felled in the box. James Brooks stroked in the penalty to equalise and begin the turnaround.

Several chances went begging as Lavant searched for the winner, Mike Neville, Sandford and Brooks all going close before Knight’s late winner.

Lavant had captain Sandford sent off late on for a second booking but held on to move up to eighth.

Team: Neil Sanson, Richard Gabb, Ben Purgavie, Jon Wright, Matt Lyttle, Dave Knight, Dave Maclean, James Brooks, Mike Neville, Alex Holmes, James Sandford.   Subs: Chris Richards, Tom Haslam, Will Cieszynski
