YATE TOWN 0 v 4 PAULTON ROVERS
Brilliant Paulton back on winning ways
NICK BURGESS'S VIDEO ADDED
An excellent performance from a reinvigorated Paulton side who overcame a decent Yate Town side.
Rovers pressed down both wings with Kailan Gould down the left and Dave Sims on the right were stretching the home defence and Sims drew a bad foul from left back Chris Gregan to draw a penalty in the sixteenth minute which James Byrne converted.
Sims scored Paulton's second in the twenty second minutes cutting in on the right evading two tackles and turning the ball in from a tight angle.
Gould made a darting run from the left and his drive was parried away by Yate keeper Harvey Rivers.
Yate missed several chances firing wildly wide on several occasions.
In the final minutes of the half Rovers three times in succession saw the home side make goal line clearances from shots from Charlie Ten-Grotenhuis and twice by captain Dale Evans.
Yate came out battling and there were some great saves ' par excellant' from French keeper Alex Andre on loan from Bristol Rovers which will have pleased the 'Gas' watching coaching staff.
On 64 minutes Paulton made it 3-0 as Sims picked up a loose ball ran on twenty yards dribbling past two tackles to slot around Rivers.
They made it 4-0 four minutes later as Gould's free kick was turned into his own net by a defender although Jack Ball playing against his old side was awarded the goal.
In the last ten minutes Andre produced saves from Nick Pearce, Lewis Gilcrist and Kyle Tooze and in the final minute Tooze playing against his former side must have been dismayed at Andre's brilliant last save 'c'est magnifique'
