Vauxhall Motors stalled; NON-LEAGUE.

Byline: BY ALAN BARTLAM

Redditch Utd 2

Vauxhall Motors 0

SHOWING five changes from the previous outing, the much-changed Motormen went on to dominate the opening half of this Blue Square Premier contest, but were then hit by a double sucker punch in the opening quarter of the second period, to leave manager Andy Mutch hugely frustrated.

Three minutes into the second half, United full back Danny Edwards went through on the left and it took a smart save from on-loan keeper Lloyd Rigby going to his left to keep out his shot at the expense of a corner. But from this, central defender Liam Daley applied a glancing header at the near post to put the hosts into a flattering lead.

And on 59 minutes Edwards raced through again to double the Redditch lead.

Captain Ged Brannan almost gave them hope of a recovery with a well-struck free kick in the last ten minutes, but again Lewis read the situation perfectly to take the sting out of the set piece, as the match tamely came to a frustrating conclusion.

Vauxhall: Rigby, Owens (Williams 73), Dames, Hitchen, Holmes, Brannan, Heler, Griffiths, Reed, Rapley (Roberts 70), Smith (Whittaker 53). Sub: Wright, Carney.
