CREDITON made the trip to Totnes on Monday, May 2, on a lovely zippy pitch but had a strong wind to contend with.

Creddy welcomed back Broom, Khoo, Harvey and Blake to the starting line up from Saturday’s defeat at Newton Abbot where they started the brighter side and went into an early lead on just nine minutes.

After Tyler Cooke was bundled over in the box and Simon Durrant had his spot kicked-saved, Dan McCann was on-hand to tuck home the rebound.

For the next half-an-hour Creddy were trying to pass the ball on a good surface whereas the hosts biggest threat was from crosses and set pieces. After a fantastic control Blake almost chipped the ‘keeper but his effort just went over. The rest of the half saw Creddy comfortable and went in one up.

The start of the second half saw the same pattern and Creddy had a couple guilt edge chances to seal the game.

Firstly Blake had a shot saved from six yards and was again off target moments later. This then saw a total capitulation from the team.

Totnes drew level on 60 minutes, after a cross smacked star man Lawrence Khoo in the face it kindly fell to the centre half to smash home from four yards.

Creddy did restore the lead on 67 minutes a wonderful cross from the right-flank from Tom Jordan, picked out Richard Blake who diving-headered home from six yards.

However, the hosts equalised for a second time on 70 minutes following a long ball forward where the ball fell kindly to the striker who slotted home from 12 yards.

Totnes hit the front on 79 minutes when a misplaced headed backpass from Khoo allowed Myles Chalcraft the simple task of a pass to his strike partner who slotted home from eight yards.

Totnes completed the scoring on 83 minutes when the winger cut in from the right flank and expertly curled home from 16 yards and in off the far post.

There was still time for a surging run from Broom who beat five players but his low shot was well-saved by the home ‘keeper.

This was a result we did not see coming after being solid and comfortable at 1-0 up on the hour mark.
