AFC TOTTON THRASH DIDCOT TOWN
Seven heaven for AFC Totton as they thrash Didcot Town
AFC Totton were quick out the blocks scoring inside the first two minutes through Jordan Chiedoze whose acrobatic effort found the corner.
Didcot Town pulled themselves in the 14th minutes after Benjamin Putland guided a header past Lewis Noice.
The Stags were forced into a double change with Charlie Kennedy and Alfie Stanley replacing Benny Read and Matty Burrows inside 16 minutes.
The Stags were awarded a penalty early in the 49th minute, with Scott Rendell converting making it 2-1.
Scott Rendell scored his 50th goal for the club minutes later, pouncing on a loose ball after a strong initial save by Didcot keeper Leigh Bedwell.
From then on, The Stags were too much for Didcot. Eighteen minutes from time Alfie Stanley made it 4-1 with a delightful chip.
Minutes later Stanley grabbed his second, firing past keeper Bedwell, who was subsequently shown a second yellow following a scuffle after the goal.
Ever present Jordan Ragguette added a sixth four minutes from time, slotting past substitute keeper Timmy Mungali rounding off a magnificent solo run.
Moving into stoppage time The Stags weren’t finished yet with Leon Maloney scoring contender for goal of the month if not season.
The winger expertly curled the ball past the despairing Mungali into the far-right corner.
AFC Totton look to make it back-to-back home wins on Saturday when they face Merthyr Town.
