RHOOSE FC 4
DESPITE surrendering a two-goal advantage in Saturday's Macwhirter Welsh Soccer League clash, Rhoose hit back to come away with a deserved three points.
Travelling to Tremorfa (Cardiff), Rhoose opened the Third Division match on a strong and positive note and soon had the home side in trouble with two well-worked goals from James Dixon and top marksman Drew Fahiya. However, set-piece lapses either side of half time allowed the home side to draw level against the run of play.
With Rhoose continuing to make chances with regular breaks down the flanks from Fahiya and Nicky Davison, it was only a matter of time before they broke through and this came in the 85th minute when Davison netted at the far post following excellent approach work from Dixon.
Fahiya secured the points for the improving Vale side with an injury-time penalty.
This Saturday, October 12, Rhoose are in Welsh Cup action with a tough away trip to Gorseinon, Swansea, to face Garden Village FC, who play in the Second Division of the Welsh League.
