As predicted on this blog, Leamington beat Romulus 2-1 at the New Windmill Ground tonight to keep them on track to win the BGB Midlands Division title. The Centurions found a weak gap in Leamington's defences to go 1-0 ahead on 6 minutes through their danger man Tyrone Fagan.
However, Brakes equalised on 13 minutes through a ball drilled along the ground by Luke Corbett. The Romulus keeper initially seemed to have made the save, but he spilled the ball and it went into the back of the net.
In the second half, Brakes hit saw the ball bounce along the woodwork while Romulus threatened at the Harbury Lane end. However, Brakes scored the winner from a corner wuth a scramble in front of goal. Even at the end of the match, it was not clear who had scored, but no matter.
Romulus brought their usual hard core of lippy supporters, but at least they didn't have paint brushes turned upside down and painted red on their heads.
News came through from The Valley of Matthew Spring's winning goal against Palace. It will be a difficult 24 hours for the Parkinson bashers: not only did the Addicks win, but they did so through a player signed by the supposedly hapless Parkinson.
