Greenbacks hand win to home side; EVO-STIK PREMIER.

Weymouth....................................2 Bedworth......................................1 BEDWORTH suffered their sixth defeat in seven games as two early goals handed Weymouth a vital victory.

But the Greenbacks were unlucky not to salvage a draw late on, winger Richard Westley being denied by the woodwork in the closing stages.

Striker Mark Ford bagged both goals for the home side, the first coming after just six minutes when he found the net with a low drive.

He doubled his and Weymouth's tally on 20 minutes when he let fly with a thumping volley from just outside the area.

Bedworth keeper Andy Kemp did well to deny Ford his hat-trick before the break as the Dorset outfit finished the half on top.

The visitors had mustered little in front of goal until four minutes into the second period when Mitchell Piggon sprang the offside trap and rounded Terras keeper Simon Evans.

Wesley was just inches away from an equaliser when his late effort hit the upright but it wasn't to be and the Greenbacks are now facing up to a relegation scrap.
