Casey's bullet downs Blues

The Beavers move into 8th place with Josh Casey's moment of magic

The Beavers had best of the early attempts as the Police found the pressing game tough to break down, and it was Charlie Moone who had two chances in quick succession; looping a header over the bar and then hitting a shot wide.

On 25 minutes, former Beaver Tom Collins was the first to get a chance on target as the Blues were being kept at a distance, his header deflected off Kieran Murphy, making Seb Brown dive full length to keep it out.

After Nicke Kabamba had lashed a shot over the bar on the half hour, it looked like a level score line at halftime, as the Beavers defended competently and kept the Police at bay without really getting the upper hand themselves.

However, with seconds to go, Josh Casey crashed home a 20 yard fire bolt past keeper King after a neat lay off by Murphy on the edge of the box.

In the second half, Hampton continued to have more of the play and the better chances. On 53 minutes, speedy midfielder Jerome Federico found himself in space; his near post cross was met by Charlie Moone, whose sliding shot hit the post and ricocheted off Kabamba, the ball running wide as the striker tried to adjust to the rebound.

The Police's only second half chance came courtesy of a Charlie Collins free kick which Brown had to dive to push wide on 59 minutes.

5 minutes later, Charlie Moone had a great chance to extend the lead as a Federico cross was flicked on by Eddie Hutchinson, but with time and space, he couldn't bring it down and lashed it over the bar from the edge of the box.

The Beavers could have wrapped up the game with 10 minutes to go, but Nicke Kabamba couldn't get on top of a Federico cross and the shot flew wide as he slid into the near post.
