Western League Division One: Portishead Town 2-0 AEK Boco

Portishead entered their game at home to Boco in 1st place, level on points with second place, Radstock, but with three games in hand the Possets were looking to increase the gap, writes Hugo Richards.

Portishead got off to a quick start through Ethan Feltham who did well to lose his man in the box and get on the end of a good ball from Mitchell Osmond, heading home the opener to make it 1-0.

Feltham came close to another headed goal 20 minutes later but narrowly missed over the bar. Boco came close to scoring through a counter attack but Toby Lawrence and Elliot Ripley did well to close the striker down before he could get a shot off. At the break, Portishead went in with a somewhat secure 1-0 lead.
The first chance of the second half came from the Possets after Joe Berry did well to beat his man in the box and delivered a ball back post to Callum Townsend whose tight angled volley sailed high over the bar.

Just after the hour mark, disaster struck for Boco when their striker was sent off for dissent. Portishead saw off any Boco attempts with ease due to the red card and in the 90th minute the Possets doubled the lead through an incredible 40-yard volley from Feltham for his 40th goal of the season.
Portishead’s manger, Kye Mountford will be satisfied with another solid performance from his team and a clean sheet will certainly add the icing to the cake.

Portishead remain top of the league and even more secure than before and there is one player that needs singling out.

Ethan Feltham opened the scoring with an early header from a Mitch Osmond free kick and then he secured the points in the second half with a magnificent strike from outside the area, after he saw the keeper off his line.

Those two goals mean it is 40 goals in all competitions for the prolific number 9. Very impressive stuff and in part his form is one of the reasons Portishead Town are doing well at the moment.

The Possets travel to Bitton Tuesday night in what promises to be a feisty affair and another opportunity to pull ahead from second place.
