County Senior League Div One - Game 3
25/09/21 - Wombwell Town vs AFC Dronfield
Wombwell Town had to come back from behind to secure another three points as their season grows from strength to strength.
A good talking to at half time saw The Wellers come out in the second half with more determination and upped the pace from the restart.
It took just two minutes into the half for the equaliser to arrive as a mini-scramble in the penalty area saw the ball played out to Will Harling on the right.
Instead of taking on the shot himself, Harling played a perfect pass across goal for substitute Luke Norbury to volley home from ten yards out.
The goal cancelled out AFC Dronfield's 37th minute goal which was, bizarrely, the only shot on target in the first 45.
t came from a free kick which bounced over Jake Padgett and caught Jono Davis unaware. The ball hit the stomach of the keeper to the feet of the Dronfield player who tapped home.
With AFC Dronfield's confidence dropping since the equaliser another goal was on the cards for The Wellers who continued to press forward.
It came on 55 minutes from a corner as Harling's in-swinger found the head of Eddie Agnew who steered the ball past the keeper and the player marking him.
The goal from Agnew - his first since returning to the club in the summer - turned out to be the winning goal as neither side troubled either keeper too much before the final whistle blew.
