Epsom & Ewell 0 Sandhurst Town 2
Sandhurst Town turned in one of their strongest performances of the season to beat Epsom & Ewell on their own turf in the Combined Counties Premier League.
The Fizzers opened the scoring in the 20th minute when a through ball by Errol Hutchings to Mulvaney was handballed by Epsom defender Ben Hayward in the area.
Veteran Mulvaney duly stepped up to confidently bury the ball in the net from the spot.
The Fizzers’ new striker Mark Corbett, signed from Alton United in the week, slotted home from 10 yards just after the hour to give Peter Browning’s side all three points.
Browning hailed his side’s display and was delighted to have put an end to Epsom’s four-game unbeaten run.
The Fizzers manager said: “The relentless pressure applied from the start, winning the majority of challenges in midfield only served to spur the lads on to beat Epsom.
“Our first goal seemed to further feed the hunger and confidence for the rest of the game. I couldn’t ask for anything more from the squad who produced a fine team performance, quickly quelling any resistance offered by Epsom who have been in form recently winning their last four games.”
Next up for Sandhurst was the visit of Bedfont Green last night (Tuesday) before Colliers Wood United come to town on Saturday.
