Defensive lapses cost The Reds dear

A series of defensive lapses from Woodford United gifted this encounter to AFC Hayes and they took full advantage to romp home to a 3-0 away victory.

The first 15 minutes of the match belonged to Woodford. Had they taken the lead during this dominating period with both Sid Hawkins and midfielder Chris Davies having efforts

superbly saved by Hayes keeper Simon Grant, the result may certainly have been different.
