A brace from Lewis Bingham and a 27th goal of the season from Gavin King saw Ollerton Town edge out East Yorkshire Carnegie and give themselves some breathing space above the relegation zone in Division One yesterday, writes Ian Robinson.
After two home defeats on the spin, a win was imperative for Town to help them pull away from danger, and as Gavin acknowledged, the points were more important than the performance.
“It was a poor game in truth, especially the first half for us, as we couldn’t string a pass together, and having a keeper carrying a knock killed us. They probably felt as if they should have been another one up at half time, but in the second half we were better, had more clear cut chances and played with higher intensity. We deserved a couple of goals in the end and I’m happy for Lewis Bingham who scored with two great finishes.
“The performance wasn’t the best of the season but it’s a big three points for us.”
