Rugby Town 3 - 0 Northwood
Saturday 2nd March 2013
Valley continued their promotion push with a fourth win on the bounce at Northwood.
Rugby were generally comfortable throughout, especially after Fazel Koriya's 31st minute opener, but it took until the final ten minutes to seal the points as Sam Youngs and Ellis Myles struck late on to ensure a first ever win at Northwood.
Koriya opened the scoring with the simpliest of finishes at the far post after David Kolodynski had found himself in space on the right and supplied a perfect low cross.
It wasn't to be Kolodynski's day in front of goal as Valley's top scorer contrived to hit the woodwork three times during the game while Alex Gudger also hit the bar with a header in the second half.
Northwood were still in the game at just one goal down and put in a big effort but rarely troubled David Bevan in the Rugby goal despite being a threat from set pieces.
With ten minutes remaining Rugby sealed the points as Sam Youngs excellent turn in the penalty unlocked the Northwood defence after Koriya's through-pass and the midfielder stroked the ball low into the net.
In the final minute full back Ellis Myles spectacularly opened his account for the club with a dipping shot from 20 yards after Koriya's lay-off.
Full report to follow.
Valley Line-up: Bevan; Austin, Myles, Rowley, Gudger; Koriya, McBride, Belcher, Youngs, Blythe; Kolodynski. Subs not used: Lake-Gaskin, Booth, Evangelinos, Miller. Booked: None.
