Improved Boro' beaten by ten man Royston

There were signs of improvement but Gosport let a point slip through their fingers as The Crows struck late on to claim the spoils.

Gosport’s steep Southern League learning curve continued as they slipped to a 3-2 defeat despite a vastly improved display against ten-man Royston Town.

The new-look Boro' side worked hard and kept themselves in contention throughout until substitute Ryan Ingrey settled the contest with four minutes left.

Whilst there was much to enthuse over, Pike lamented his teams continued defensive naivety after the game, feeling that some reward should have been gleaned from a lively contest.

His team deservedly went ahead after 13 minutes as Przespolewski’s free kick picked out Saidy at the far post whose downward header left Welch with no chance. Five minutes later the Crows were level as Castliogne powerfully headed home a free kick.

Royston were reduced to ten men as Corcoran was issued a straight red card for an off the ball challenge on Przespolewski with nine minutes until the break.

The visitors took the lead three minutes into the second half. Castliogne’s corner picked out the dreadlocks of Dan Braithwaite, whose header dropped into the corner of the net.

Gosport worked hard to get back in the game and their hard graft was rewarded richly in the 72nd minute as Liam Kimber’s delightful effort from the edge of the area (pictured) screamed past Welch to spark wild celebrations. A confidence-boosting result was within their grasp.

But there was to be heartbreak for Gosport. With four minutes left, Ryan Ingrey’s deflected effort left Watch helpless to win the game for the Crows leaving Gosport without a point from their first three games.
