SWINDON Supermarine extended the club’s winning run into a fourth game thanks to a 2-1 comeback victory at home to Weston-super-Mare last Saturday.

After a difficult first 45 that saw a Weston side which had not lost since late October go in a goal up, Marine battled back magnificently through Harry Williams and Henry Spalding to snatch all three points and rise to 15th in the in Southern League Premier South table.

It was the visitors who started strongest at the Webbswood Stadium with Weston captain Kieran Thomas forcing Marine goalkeeper Martin Horsell into a smart early save.

The away side really should have taken the lead in the 12th minute when Jordan Bastin was presented with a golden opportunity on the edge of the six-yard box, but the Weston man inexplicably blazed over.

Three minutes later though, and that miss would be forgotten as former Chippenham Town man Marlon Jackson opened the scoring.

Dayle Grubb dribbled his way past some lax Marine defending before slamming a shot against the post. The rebound fell straight to Jackson, and he tapped into the empty net.

Lee Spalding’s men were relieved to escape in at half-time only a goal down, and they came out after the break rejuvenated and aiming to make the most of their luck.

In the 66th minute they did just that after Williams reacted quickest to poke a half-cleared Jamie Edge free-kick delivery into the goal.

Marine continued to grow in confidence as the half wore on, and in the 83rd minute, they would find their deserved winner.

Kieran Phillips held the ball up and slid a pass through for Spalding. The winger held his nerve when one-on-one to poke through the goalkeeper’s legs and win the game.

Meanwhile, in Southern League Division One South, Highworth Town held third-place Sholing to a 1-1 draw following an entertaining affair at the Save on Tyres Stadium.

Ash Edenborough dispatched a second-half penalty to give the Worthians the lead, only for Sholing’s Brad Targett to see a heavily-deflected equaliser fly in a little over 10 minutes later.

Dan Comer produced a goal-line clearance shortly after, and and Connor Johns then made more than one fine save to keep the scores level until the final whistle.
