Rams Man Of The Match: BAJRHAM PASHAJ
A great debut from new signing Bajrham Pashaj helped Beaconsfield to three more points on the road as they moved up to second place in the league table.
Initial exchanges saw Dan Fleming and James Cottee have half chances for the home side whilst Pashaj saw an effort tipped over on eleven minutes and Jordan AJ Ajanlekoko had a scuffed effort cleared off the line sixty seconds later.
Pashaj also put in a couple of decent crosses and one on the 18th minute should have resulted in a goal for Kofi Lockhart-Adams but it was somehow scooped over the bar. AJ then put a header over the bar whilst the lively Fleming forced Ravan Constable in The Rams goal to make saves in the 25th and 29th minutes.
The second half began in a similar way to the first with both sides making half chances, Kameron English sending one across the face of the Rams goal on 54 minutes that just needed someone in tangerine to connect with it. On 56 minutes, however, Beaconsfield took the lead as Pashaj cut inside the Ashford defence and sent in a cross / shot that curled into the corner of Tyler Tobin’s net.
The Rams were rarely troubled after the goal and indeed looked like they could score every time they went forward. Pashaj set up Goldy Capela on the hour mark but Tobin produced a fine save. On 69 minutes, though, Capela got between two Ashford defenders and managed to squeeze the ball past Tobin to put Beaconsfield two goals up and they nearly grabbed a third right at the end when AJ saw his header cleared off the line.
This was The Rams ninth League win away from Holloways Park this season and they are riding high in the table and running high on confidence and team spirit. Long may it continue!
Come On You Rams!
