Villagers bounce back with win

A first half penalty from Sam Houghton was enough to secure all three points for the Villagers on Friday evening, as James McShane's men returned to winning ways after an impressive performance.

The games only goal came after twenty minutes after Reece Dwyer was brought down inside the area and Houghton emphatically dispatched from the 12 yard spot.

The second half saw McShane's dig in and battle for all three points with the visitors pressing for a leveller, but we did carry a threat on the break with Connor Anderson forcing their keeper into an outstanding save with an effort from distance.

Dwyer was next up to go close with a diving header that evaded their entire back four and their keeper before just narrowly going wide, and then it was the turn of Arran Lyons to keep us in the contest with an outstanding double save.

Cheadle Town then had the ball in the net but the goal was ruled out for offside, sub Niall Ford was on hand to clear off the line after their number 9 rounded past Lyons.

Cheadle pushed late on but were unable to draw themselves level and sub Lee Vaughan nearly made it 2-0 but was denied by a clever save from the Cheadle Town keeper.

Up next for the Villagers is the visit of West Didsbury & Chorlton on Bank Holiday Monday with kick off at 3pm.
