Something of a smash and grab but, following the sending off debacle at Boro and some of the bad luck we've had this season, I'll take it.
Boro dominated for the most part but didn't fully worry us unduly in the first half and we snuffed out their attacks while having the odd useful effort ourselves. It was much of the same after the break but, as the game wore on, we started looking livelier and catching them on the counter, with the only goal starting from a hefty clearance and ending with an unstoppable 20-yarder from Beads in the 66th minute.
We then rode out an onslaught, with Jamie Cureton (yes, THAT Jamie Cureton) hitting a post, two more efforts cleared off the line and Tyler making a couple of exceptional stops, while Boro keeper Aaron Bufton made a superb low post tip-around to prevent us doubling the lead and we did enough to make life uncomfy for Boro in the last 20.
Fair play to the noisy Boro fans, with plenty of jokey and predominantly clean banter on the Tangerine Terrace in the first half, and thanks to the Ashfordian in the Boro shirt (he moved there in 1979) for his company throughout the match.
All the best to Munnsy and thanks for everything over the last 50 years. It'll be tough spending more time at home with his young French wife, but a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do!
