Back to back wins delight Stein

Oakwood B clinched their second league triumph of the season, with Daniel Seligman, James Abrams and Sam Modlin guiding them past Temple Fortune.

    Considerable unavailability resulted in Simon Linden having to belatedly reshuffle his Fortune team, leaving him short of firepower up front. Missing key players like Brand, Rahav, Stead and Daniel Vandemolen was always going to make this fixture a tall order and Fortune were under the cosh for most of the game.

    Manager Linden had to play the full 90 minutes himself and the cause was not helped when Gideon Wetrin was injured during the first half. Another injured defender, Lee Hyams, was forced to swap with goalkeeper Lee Fegan at half-time. But leaving the mishaps aside, Oakwood mostly dominated and in reality this was damage limitation for the weakened home team.

    Defensively Fortune put in a decent shift but fell behind to a direct free-kick on 31 minutes. That they avoided conceding more until eight minutes from time was something of a miracle but finally Oakwood added to their single-goal lead to see out the match as deserved 3–0 winners.

    Little is going right for Simon Linden and his team at the moment but he is determined to put it right..

    Delighted joint-manager Jason Stein told JC Sport: "We're really pleased to get back to back league wins. We played well today. We were on the front foot, had plenty of possession and created some good chances.

    "We unquestionably should have put the game to bed earlier, but the win is all that matters.

    “The big disappointment is Dan Ash going off early with a calf injury. He’s just worked his way back from an ACL and him going off definitely impacted our rhythm."
