After three consecutive defeats Newbury Forest got back to winning ways in this FA Vase cup tie at Oakside on Saturday.

With both sides not in the best of form the game started slowly with neither wanting to make an error that put their side behind but it was the visitors who took the lead on 15 minutes.

The lead was short lived and five minutes later Jason Reynolds Blanche beat the Wivenhoe keeper with a deft lob that left him stranded and the teams went in half time level.

The second-half started much the same as the first but Newbury began to have the best of the possession and were awarded a penalty when

Reynolds-Blanche was bought down in the area when through on goal.

Up stepped Bradley Gates who hit the spot kick powerfully but the Wivenhoe keeper dived to his right to push the ball round the post.

Newbury kept pressing and created a good few chances but could not find a finish and it looked as if we were on our way to a replay when on 88 minute Enoch Freeman to produce a classic strike from 25 yards that crashed home via the cross bar to send Newbury through to the next round.

Forest’s next game is away to Wormley on Saturday.
