Match Report
by Robin Piper

Northwood extended their unbeaten run under caretaker manager Mark Barnham to four games as the Casuals from Ryman South were soundly beaten at a near freezing Chestnut Avenue in this League Cup second round tie.

Woods were forced into making a number of changes to their starting line-up. There was a first start for young Elliott Gibbs in place of Bradley Hewitt whilst Lee Holland replaced the injured Danny Power. Dwane Williams came in for the injured Joe Cowen, and there were starts for Laurie Walters and Scott Purdue in place of Anthony Page and Michael Gordon .

Kick-off was delayed due to the late arrival of the Casuals’ team and the visitors were still finding their feet when Northwood opened the scoring on 10 minutes, Otis Williams punishing sloppy defending by taking the ball around ’keeper Colin Harris and converting into an empty net.

Hugo Figueiredo, who enjoyed a fine game for Woods, saw his shot deflected wide after a strong run,

Northwood kept up the pressure and they deservedly extended their lead on 25 minutes as Purdue steered the ball home from Ryan Tackley’s low free-kick for his first senior goal in Northwood colours.

Woods were now playing with real verve as John Christian played in Walters whose shot flew narrowly over the target.

In a rare Casuals’ attack Eseosa Omeregie pulled his shot wide of the far post after a quick break.

However, it was Woods who scored again on 36 minutes, Otis Williams grabbing his second goal of the evening as he shot  beyond Harris following good work from Figueiredo

Northwood made a change at half-time with Brown coming on for Dwane Williams. Woods continued to threaten with some slick football and Figueiredo sent a shot curling into the bottom corner of the Casuals’ goal to effectively end the tie on 53 minutes.

Page was introduced for Purdue whilst Rob Pearce made a rare appearance between the sticks with Mitch Swain standing down.

The Casuals stuck to their guns and they managed a consolation goal after 69 minutes as Sam Robinson fired the ball home after good work from substitute Joe Nwoko.

The visitors went close to reducing the arrears further as Omoregie dragged his shot wide before Tom Jelly tested Pearce with a low drive.

But it wasn’t to be for the Casuals as Northwood eased comfortably into the next round.
