Hythe Town came away with three points in a 2-1 win at Molesey on Tuesday evening.
Both sides were slow to start with the first two opportunities coming for the hosts as firstly on eight minutes the experienced veteran Craig Lewington crossed over to Ross Chalke who headed over and then Ronald Sobowale turned and shot from the right-hand side with the ball going across the face of the goal. Hythe took a little time to settle but were ahead on 24 minutes as Darren Oldaker weaved his way through the Molesey defence releasing the ball to Zak Ansah who placed his shot neatly past home keeper Liam Allen.
Kieron Campbell, who throughout the game, tormented the Molesey back four closed in from the left but his final attempt went straight at Allen. At the other end Lewington put in another cross and as before Chalke headed over. On 42 minutes, the Cannons were two ahead as Oldaker again fed the ball into the path on Ansah who calmly rounded the goal-keeper and stroked the ball home. There was one more goal mouth incident at the other end as Dre Grobler received the ball in the penalty area but lifted his attempt over the bar when it looked easier to hit the target.
The Cannons dominated the second half as after 48 minutes a Ryan Palmer cross was deflected onto the cross bar by Grobler as he attempted to clear and then Oldaker curled the ball just around the post from the edge of the penalty area. A Palmer cross was headed towards goal by Mitchell Chapman but Lewington cleared off the Molesey goal line to prevent Hythe increasing their lead.
In the 68th minute a melee in the home penalty area saw Campbell, Ansah and Oldaker have attempts from close range blocked. The hosts had to wait until the 74th minute for their first meaningful attack of the half as a free-kick from Ryan David drifted over the bar. The hosts were reduced to ten men on 75 minutes as Ashby Charles received a second yellow card. The Cannons didn’t look threatened until the last action of the game which saw a Lewington corner headed home by Tayo Oyebola but it was too little too late and almost immediately after the goal the referee blew for full time.
It had been a comfortable win for Hythe as they move within four points of the play-off zone and are now looking forward to a trip to Whyteleafe on Saturday.
