MATCH REPORT: Didcot Town 1 Paulton Rovers 3

Paulton Rovers extended their unbeaten run with a workmanlike performance at Didcot Town.

Josh Klein-Davies opened the scoring for Rovers on 13 minutes, heading home Brandon Barnes' free-kick from the right wing.

He made it 2-0 after 39 minutes as right-back Ryan Batten's free-kick from halfway was headed down by Scott Brice into the path of Klein-Davies, who tucked the ball home.

Dean Evans worked tirelessly in midfield, creating attacks, bursting with energy up and down the pitch, winning the ball and supporting the Paulton defence.

Rovers made it 3-0 in the 70th minute when Ben Lacey broke down the left, cut inside and laid the ball off to substitute Nick McCootie, who drove a low shot past home keeper Alex Williams.

The Railwaymen pulled a goal back with three minutes remaining from a superb strike 25 yards out by Michael McKirnan which flew past Paulton keeper Lewis Pierre.

Man of the match: Dean Evans.

Rovers remain second in Calor League Division 1 South & West, although they could drop to third when Merthyr Town host Wimborne Town on Tuesday.
