BARDS PULL 7 CLEAR OF RELEGATION ZONE AFTER IMPRESSIVE WIN
Another splendid performance from the Bards saw Stratford rise to 14th place, 7 points clear of the relegation zone. One more victory from the remaining three fixtures and step 3 status is secure.
Bards started on the front foot and went ahead after 13 minutes when Kyle Bennett fired in after a cross/shot was parried after good work by Molyneux down the wing. Bards continued to dominate the first half and again the defence held firm restricting the visitors to 1 effort off target
Mickleover came into it after half time and equalised after an hour with a low shot into the corner. Bards had 2 efforts cleared off the line including a lob from Kyle Bennett when clean through but did manage to go back into the lead after 80 when Dan Lafferty, moved into midfield, slotted home from a tight angle after the referee played advantage.
Bards then held out for the last 10 minutes with the defence in excellent form again. A special mention to the match official who was consistent and allowed the game to flow aiding another fine match to watch
