Wanderers returned to league action against South
Ascot, following back-to-back wins in the County and League Cups.
Lewis Trusty returned to the centre of midfield and Chris "Stu" Orbell replaced Kieron Sherwood on the right wing.
Wokingham started sluggishly and struggled to threaten on a difficult pitch. They coped well with the few spells
of pressure which South Ascot offered - Alan Mellor stood up to some physical treatment and showed safe hands.
Midway through the first half Wanderers fell behind. Darren Wakeley was caught in possession and the South
Ascot forward finished with a low shot beyond Mellor.
Even the conceding of the first goal failed to spring Wanderers into life. Passes went astray and tackles were
not being made.
On the stroke of half-time Wanderers scored
an undeserved equaliser. Alan Pearce's fifty yard pass found Tom Soane who hit a low shot, which squirmed under the
'keeper and into the net.
This saw Wanderers raise their game in the
second half. Chances were created and Tom Soane came close on two occasions while captain Scott Ford had a rasping drive
South Ascot thought that they had won the
game when a free-kick was headed in with fifteen minutes remaining, but the Wanderers offside trap was successful.
With five minutes left Wanderers bagged all
three points. Substitute Kieron Sherwood released Tom Soane on the right. Soane pulled the ball back to the unmarked
Prior who side-footed into the net from six yards out.
Wanderers have developed a knack of winning
games without playing to their full potential. The win carries on their impressive early season form which has seen
them win 5 of their 6 competitive matches.
