Wellington’s lack of goals continued as they suffered a fourth defeat in five in Division One of the Western League at the weekend when Corsham Town came to North Street and took the points back to Wiltshire after scoring a couple of decent goals of their own.
Wellington played with more pace and purpose than last time out and were putting together some nice moves in the middle of the park as the midfield of Joe Holmes, James Clough and Ollie Chamberlain worked well together and it was Chamberlain who rattled the Corsham bar with a well hit shot.
But it is this lack of goals that is worrying at this time as the good build up play continued, but without a result and it was Corsham who took the lead when a ball was delivered into the box on a tight angle and headed past Jake Viney in the Wellington goal; just before Viney had pulled off a great save to keep the scoreline at 0-0, but he was breached on this occasion.
The second half was a fairly even affair and Oli Nott – a substitute – shot just wide of the right hand post, but Corsham got the decisive goal on the break when a neat chip over the advancing Jake Viney had enough on it to go over the line and with it any hopes Wellington had of getting something out of the game were gone.
With six games to go it is a visit to Westbury this Saturday.
