1 v 2
Marcus Dinanga was at the heart of a stunning comeback as the the Bucks took away a 2-1 victory away at Nevermoor Park with the Telford attacker scoring twice.
The first goal came when in the first half Kane Felix had a poke at goal which saw his strike end up in the way of the back of the net. This was following two initial attempts which were blocked, the third was the pivotal one which capped off a period where the hosts were deservedly so ahead.
The Bucks then came back in the second half when Dinanga was on the end of a looped ball and nodded home ahead of the on rushing Brad Wade, the flick was enough to draw the Bucks level.
They then found the third and final goal of the game late on where Dinanga couldn’t have had a better experience in receiving the ball where a back pass was then firmly snatched upon as he went all the way and finished the shot well.
Michael Luyambula made a fine stop in injury time to prevent a late leveller after a header came in which the keeper managed to read and tip away for a corner.
Aaron Soleman had an effort that was dealt with appropriately by Luyambula as the hard and low shot looked to be heading in as the keeper read it all the way.
There was a loose back pass from the home side early on with Dinanga been gifted a dream chance to test the goalkeeper from well inside the box yet his shot lacked any conviction and then went wide.
