WESTBURY United scored a 90th minute winner as Neil Kirkpatrick’s side came back from two goals down to claim victory at home to Brislington.

Despite enjoying the lion’s share of possession and territory in the opening 45 and having a goal ruled out for offside, the hosts went two down courtesy of Brislington strikes in the 69th and 75th minute.

However, Westbury’s reply was swift, and they were level before the clock struck 79 minutes thanks to Callum Demkiv and an own goal.

The comeback was complete in the dying moments as Sam Jordan flicked a corner into the net, sparking scenes of jubilation among the home fans.

Westbury manager Kirkpatrick said three points was exactly what his team deserved after dominating for the vast majority of proceedings.

“We were excellent for 85 minutes really – we played them off the park in the first half,” said Kirkpatrick.

“Their ‘keeper kept them in it with four or five really good saves, and then they scored twice around the 70th minute.

“It was just two mistakes that hopefully won’t happen again, but they’re two poor goals to concede.

“And it just makes you think; that probably sums our season up’ in terms of we were playing well in patches, but we end up giving goals away.

“But we got one back quickly and then scored three in the last 15 minutes – it was exactly what we deserved.”

With no game in midweek, Westbury’s next outing comes on Saturday when they travel to one of the teams narrowly ahead of them in the table – Street.

Kirkpatrick has stated in no uncertain terms how important he feels the game is to Westbury’s chances of bagging a top-eight finish as the games begin to run out.

He said: “It’s a massive game because them and Clevedon are the ones that we targeted to claw back.

“We’re right up behind both of them now, and we’ve got games in hand over Street, so for me it’s a really big game.

“Once we get past them, then I think it is a big gap to the rest above.

“But getting 9th place was our target a few weeks back, and we’ve probably done it a bit quicker than I thought we would.”

Bradford Town did not play at the weekend but are due to take on Premier Division table toppers Plymouth Parkway in a huge clash on Tuesday night.
