Hampton continue winning streak to beat Seagulls


3rd straight win for the Beavers relegates Weston-super-Mare

Ruel Sotiriou's 5th goal of the season plus Ryan Hill's late strike were enough to give the Beavers the points and in doing so, ended Weston-super-Mare's hopes of avoid the drop again.

Weston began strongly and dominated possession in the early stages of the game, but rarely threatened Ashley Maynard-Brewer in the Hampton goal. After Tom Harrison had sent a header wide for the hosts, Alex Byrne crashed a shot against the post to give the Beavers a scare.

However, the Beavers took advantage of their first real chance. Ruel Sotiriou won the ball in midfield and showed strength to hold onto the ball before dinking it over the defender's head, giving him the space to rifle the ball past Luke Purnell in the Weston goal.

Just after the half hour, it was nearly a second for the Beavers as Tyrell Miller-Rodney powered to the left hand side of the Weston box; his powerful shot beat Purnell but rattled the crossbar.

After the break, Weston started to create a problem or two for the Beavers; Marlon Jackson's shot, although on target, was easy enough for Maynard-Brewer to save.

The Seagulls kept dominating possession but the Beavers were showing their solidity in defence, keeping the home team well away from goal.

Just after the hour, Maynard-Brewer finally was tested with Alex Bray's low shot, which forced the keeper to get down quickly to his left to parry it away.

The Seagulls kept trying to break down the Beavers defensive resistance and get an equaliser which would keep them in with a shout of a win, but with less than 10 minutes to go, their fate was sealed.

Ryan Hill's first attempt on goal was blocked and the ball eventually found its way back to him; he drove forward and fired in a powerful, rising shot which flew into the roof of the net, leaving Purnell pawing at the air in desperation as it flew over his head.

Weston immediately put the Beavers back under pressure, and vociferous shouts around the whole ground for a penalty were turned down by the referee.

Deep in added time, Alex Bray once again tested Ashley Maynard-Brewer low down but in the end, the Beavers held firm for their 3rd straight win.

Speaking after the game, manager Gary McCann said 'I always said this squad was a work in progress and these results have shown we're on the right lines."
