Three precious points secured from Frome Town victory

The game was billed as a relegation six pointer with both sides in desperate need of the points, and after an exciting game it was Gosport who grabbed the points with a welcome 3 - 1 victory.

Craig McAllister was able to call upon the services of new central midfielder Mike Carter after he had signed on a months loan from Havant & Waterlooville at the end of the week.

With Carter making his presence known in the middle of the park alongside the equally impressive Charlie Davis, BORO's midfield was looking strong & full of energy.

The Robins obviously came to Privett Park determined to get something out of the game, and were proving hard to breakdown, with some good football being played by both sides.

The stalemate continued and the first half ended goalless.

Half time 0 - 0

Gosport Borough came out for the second half knowing that they needed to create more scoring opportunities and the breakthrough came in the 65th minute.

'Hot Shot' striker Ryan Pennery was able to get on the end of a good cross and muscle the ball into the back of the was just reward for his high tempo work rate... 1 nil to the BORO'

The Gosport fans didn't have to wait long for another goal, and after some great work by Pat Suraci sent Penners through, he went past the onrushing goalkeeper to score his second of the game and 20th goal of the season in all competitions. 2 nil to Gosport.

All 3 points were all but secured when after another neat period of play by the BORO', Ryan Pennery who was on a hat trick, squared the ball to Pat Suraci to smash the ball into the back of the net - 3 nil to the BORO'.

Frome Town did score a consolation goal but the day belonged to Gosport.

Full time 3 - 1

Macca was delighted with his players and they go again next Saturday at home to Swindon Supermarine, determined to continue the fight for the points that will take them away from trouble.

Gosport team: O'Flaherty, Medway, Lafleur, Lea, Byrne, Carter, Barker, Davis, McAllister, Pennery, Suraci.
