WEMBLEY 1, LONDON TIGERS 0,
Saturday, 8th October, 2016,
Spartan South Midlands League – Premier Division
Despite their recent spree of goals, Wembley only needed one to see-off struggling London Tigers at Vale Farm. Yassine Fehmi-Gil’s successfully taken 48th minute spot-kick was sufficient to separate the two sides. It was Wembley’s eighth win in succession which moved them to third place in the Premier Division table.
Wembley thoroughly deserved their victory against very dour and unenterprising opponents and should have won by a greater margin. Too many misplaced passes hampered their movements, while they also squandered several decent goalscoring chances throughout the contest.
The unchallenged Jermaine Heron failed to put away a couple of excellent opportunities early on. A free header which flashed over the bar, while his close range strike was blocked on the goalline.
The Lions were also thwarted by the good form of their former goalkeeper Ini Amagebe, who made several fine saves Notably when he expertly using his agility to fend away two fiercely struck point blank efforts from Heron and Joe Wright respectively.
But in the event, Fehmi-Gil’s penalty three minutes into the second-half awarded for a foul on Wright who had twisted his way into the box, was all that was required.
WEMBLEY; Zulmatashvili, Webb, Humphries, Pearce, Brown, Fekete, O’Reilly
(Sabti h/t), Amellal, Wright, Fehmi-Gil (Laraba 88), Heron (Kasirye 74).
