The 100 per centers

THE second meeting in eight days of these two teams once again went the way of Buckby.

Bucks continued their free flowing football that has become a trademark this season, taking the game to the opposition and forcing them onto the back foot.

As early as the 5fifth minute, a great ball from the left found Fazel Koriya but his shot was saved.

Two minutes later Wellingborough thought they should have been awarded a free kick, but the referee waved play on and in the ensuing confusion Buckby nearly scored.

Craig Kelly was a constant threat as he combined with both Greg Ling and Koriya, creating several chances that went begging. Despite almost constant pressure, the scores were level at half time.

Wellingborough had obviously had a roasting at half time as they came out all guns blazing for the second half. However, it was Buckby who nearly found a way through as Koriya controlled a through ball only to put his shot over the bar.

Buckby were forced into a change on 54 minutes when Kelly was replaced by Dan Chilton following a groin injury.

The left wing was proving a particular area of success as first Ling and then Koriya caused havoc. Manager Glenn Botterill rung the changes when Rob Foster and Richard Bunting replaced Josh Davis and Richie Allen.

The changes paid off when on 73 minutes a right wing cross from Foster was deflected to Russ Dunkley who opened the scoring.

On 80 minutes Koriya not only dazzled the crowd but also the Wellingborough defenders when a delightful reverse set him clear to cross for Foster who powered in an unstoppable header.

Three minutes later an interchange between Koriya and Foster teed up Dan Quigley who riffled his shot into the net to make it 3-0.
