Eyüphan Toga fires home the only goal of the game against Vines Cross.

Eyüphan Toga’s fifteenth minute goal was all there was between the sides at New Home Park yesterday, but it secured another valuable three points against a side who are always very difficult to break down.

The only other action of note came midway through the first half when Brook Street almost doubled the lead. However, Jake MacConnechy rattled the woodwork when it looked easier to score.

Vines’ keeper Tomas Thörnström had to be at his very best just before the hour mark to tip a Germán Olmos Ribas header over the bar, and he produced a remarkable save in the sixty-seventh minute to deny Leoš Loos what appeared to be an almost certain goal.

“It wasn’t a classic by any means” admitted Marcus afterwards, “but we’ve secured another three points and kept a clean sheet in the process”.

He continued, “We’re turning New Home Park into a fortress again, and that’s now three wins, six goals scored and none conceded. The win also sets us up nicely for Wednesday’s Cup tie with Swansea”.

The win saw Brook Street swap places with Vines in the league, and in the other matches Vodikavkaz are up to second following an impressive 5-0 win away to EK Tuggers, Kessler’s and Airth Castle shared a goal-less draw, and Sparta swept Arenelle aside romping to an 8-0 win.
