Leamington continued their push for a play off place with a 2-0 victory over Cirencester Town at the New Windmill Ground this afternoon.
It was a dour first half reflecting the dour nature of the visiting Centurions. Brakes pressed hard, but the visitors gave no quarter. The best chance of the half came on 25 minutes when the Cirencester keeper fumbled the ball, but they were able to clear.
Brakes piled on the pressure playing towards the Harbury Lane end in the second half and Jamie Hood connected with a corner kick on 67 minutes to make it 1-0. Alex Tayor then put in a sweet strike from mid-distance on 74 minutes to put the game beyond the visitors.
Brakes continued to play some nice football, keeping the ball on the ground more than they had earlier in the game, but were unable to find the net again.
Big lump Jody Bevan contested every offside decision until the Grecian 2000 model was eventually substituted. Man of the match for me was Stephan Morley.
