BUCHAN BEAUTY BEATS BALL’S BOYS
Struggling Bideford AFC pulled off a shock victory over play-off chasing AFC Totton.
After the two sides met at the Snows Stadium three days ago, with Totton taking all three points, Bideford aimed to reverse the result this evening.
The Robins got off to a flyer four minutes in, with some dazzling interplay before Matthew BUCHAN curled in a sublime opener from outside the area.
The hosts kicked on from there, and should have extended their lead in the second half, only to be thwarted by last-ditch heroics from Lewis Noice and the Stags defence, as well as the offside flag.
Bideford dominated the frequent aerial exchanges, and defended resolutely on the way to a battling and well-earned three points.
Final Score: Bideford AFC 1-0 AFC Totton
Man of the Match: Matthew Buchan
Entertainment Value: 2/5
