Farnboro 1-0 Leigh RMI

Farnborough secured a deserved victory over Leigh despite the dismissal of influential midfielder Steve Watson.

Watson was sent off for his second bookable offence in the 59th minute, shortly after the woodwork had prevented him scoring with a shot from outside the box.

Instead it was Gary Holloway who broke the deadlock, driving the ball home 18 minutes from time after Leroy Griffiths had crossed from the left.

Farnborough created the better chances overall and Ken Charlery could have given them the lead after seven minutes, but headed over from close range.

Three minutes before the break, Leigh goalkeeper Stuart Coburn had to tip Tony Taggart's superb 25-yard free-kick around the post.

After Holloway had scored, Farnborough were fairly comfortable and Dean Green came close to doubling their lead.

The win lifts Farnborough to a respectable position in the Conference table.


Farnborough: Pennock, Warner, Rodwell, Annon, Gregory, Watson, Taggart, Butterworth, Holloway, Green, Charlery. Subs: Laker, Lenny Piper, Osborn, Carroll, Griffiths.

Leigh RMI: Coburn, Maden, Durkin, Fitzhenry, Monk, Heald, Salt, Kielty, Whittaker, Chris Ward, Maamria. Subs: Fisher, Mark Ward, McGill, Whitehead, Williams.

Referee: M Yerby (Ashford).
