Horsham 3 East Grinstead 1
Wasps grounded, as Hornets fly
Joe Shelley’s second half header earned Horsham all three points at a chilly Culver Road, in a hard fought win for Dom Di Paola’s side.
Dean Bown set Horsham on their way early on, sliding home in the eighth minute after a long ball over the top set him clear behind the Cannon’s defence. Horsham had numerous chances to stretch their lead further, spurning several good opportunities, and were punished in the twenty-ninth minute when Charlie Webster dragged the visitors level.
Horsham re-took the lead early on in the second half, with a leaping header as he connected with a Horsham corner, and were made to sweat as Hythe sought to find another equaliser as the game wore on, but it was to no avail as Horsham held on and moved up to sixteenth.
