MATCH REPORT: TOOTING & MITCHAM V DUNSTABLE TOWN
TROPHY TRIUMPH AT TOOTING
Dunstable came from behind to win this FA Trophy match in their first visit to their hosts for sixteen years. The home side began sprightly running and deserved their lead which was snatched from a cross from the right by Chace O’Neill after eighteen minutes. Three minutes later a trademark free-kick from Danny Talbot, from fully thirty yards brought the equaliser as Dunstable reasserted themselves.
Tooting attacked wilfully but a remarkable goal was scored by Zack Reynolds, who broke from his own penalty area, and scampered up field and with a quick exchange pass with Andrew Phillips, the Dunstable skipper put his side ahead for the first time in the match.
Dunstable, now far more comfortable increased their lead following a Talbot corner and Kelvin Bossman made it 3-1 from close range. Tooting hit back and after a period of pressure they reduced the arrears when Billy Dunn made it 3-2 following a free-kick.
Tooting piled on late pressure in order to gain at least a replay but in the ninth minute of stoppage time Dunstable substitute Saul Williams put the game beyond doubt by making it 4-2.
