Oliyide strike sees off Sports

By

On a cold December evening at the Beveree, Hampton and Richmond took the spoils in the Middlesex Senior Cup and are rewarded with a trip to Barnet in mid-January.

By Ben Morton

To say that victory was comfortable would be an overstatement, with Bedfont putting up a firm fight despite being two divisions below in the non-league pyramid.

Prior to the match Gary expressed the importance of re-finding that winning feeling and building a platform going into the weekend's game against high-flying Welling. Despite this, the opening to the game was lethargic from the home side.

Within three minutes the Beavers had a scare, with an in-swinging corner thumped onto the top of the bar by Perry Luckins for Bedfont. Hampton gradually gained control of the ball and created some chances, with Karl Oliyide bundling his way through the visitors' defence and was only prevented getting a shot away by Bedfont’s keeper Matte Pierson sliding at his feet.

In this quiet opening exchange the best chance fell to Oliyide in the thirty third minute, where great work on the wing by Ryan Hill led to a powerful cross being guided narrowly wide by Karl’s left boot.

After the break Hampton came out firing and with a lot more attacking intent to their play. Within two minutes a quickly taken free kick lead to an effort by Rian Bray hitting the side netting. This pressure continued with Pierson pulling off a good save low to his left from Dan Uchechi just minutes later. The resultant consecutive corners from this led to the deadlock being broken by Oliyide, who tucked the ball into the bottom corner off the post after it fell to him on the edge of the box.

Any hope of a comfortable win was soon evaporated with the Bedfont defence comfortably keeping the Beavers attack at arm’s length even with the introduction of top scorer Chris Dickson off the bench.

With the score line at just 1-0 there was always a chance the chance of an equaliser, and the woodwork saved Hampton again in the 85th minute with Jack Mills smashing the bar from outside the box with a rasping drive, with the rebound centimetres over.

With just seconds remaining the away side won a corner and sent up keeper Pierson in the hope of an equaliser. The corner was cleared to the halfway line, leaving man of the match Hill to run the ball into an empty net and give a bit of gloss to the result that was certainly harsh on Bedfont.

After the match, Gary admitted it was a difficult and competitive game, but spoke of the positives to take from it, especially the clean sheet.

Talking to the HRBFC Twitter after the game he said: “The game at The Hive is our reward for a good performance and we will look forward to it.”

The Beavers will be looking to build on the victory at home to Welling this Saturday.
