Two for Nicke give Beavers the points

The Beavers overcame the wind with a clinical performance against a lacklustre Grays Athletic side, Nicke Kabamba's two goals being the platform.

Grays took the wind in the first half but couldn't make use of it and Hampton created the first chances; midway through the half, Jamal Lowe made a mazy dribble past 3 defenders to the edge of the box, but the ball rolled away to Lamar Johnson in the Grays goal.

Kabamba then played in Brendan Kiernan, whose initial shot was blocked by Johnson, the rebound fell back to the midfielder, whose second attempt was also blocked by the keeper.

Grays found themselves under pressure during the second half and the Beavers soon took the upper hand. Brendan Kiernan broke through the defence and although losing the ball, regained it to slip a shot past Johnson. It looked all the world like a goal but Agyemang managed to get back to cover and clear it off the line.

On the hour, the Beavers created a great chance through Jamal Lowe, whose initial shot was blocked by Johnson, who also reached Lowe's followup, but it wasn't long before Hampton took the lead as Kabamba beat the offside trap to tip the ball past Johnson, and sidefooted it home.

With 10 minutes left, a long free kick from midfield by Josh Casey was flicked on by Kabamba, and then nodded home by defender Moussa Diarra.

The Beavers make the game safe; breaking away from the back, Charlie Moone, who was in lots of space down the right, played Kabambain with a clinical pass and the striker netted from the edge of the box.

Grays got on the scoresheet with the last kick of the game as the Beavers let their concentration drop and Dumebi Dumaka sidefooted home from close range after good work from Agyemang down the right.

After the match, manager Dowse was pleased with the 3 points, "We knew the goal would come and it was important we stayed patient. We did, and I was delighted when the goals finally came. Nicke has taken his chances well with some good finishes while Charlie Moone has been away."

However, he refused to get carried away, "We've got a long way to go yet though and Bognor will be on a high after their win against Maidstone but we've got to put today aside and think of that. Like anyone else, we still need to win matches."
