2 FOR EBANKS AS BARDS PULL 5 CLEAR OF RELEGATION ZONE
Another midfield dogfight with little goalmouth action, Bards won this local derby fairly comfortably to go 5 clear of the relegation zone with 4 left to play. Bards defended in numbers, waiting for the breakaways, while Redditch played out from the back. In a rare moment of quality, Bards went ahead after 32 minutes with a fine move – Charlie Williams racing down the left and crossing perfectly for Callum Ebanks to thunder a header into the top corner of the net.
Redditch upped it in the 2nd half but only had 1 shot on target (out of 4) the whole game. Bards made the game safe on 83 after a scramble with Ebanks scoring his 2nd of the night poking home from close range to win the man-of-the-match.
