THE WHITE Tigers got back into winning ways with a 2-0 victory over Concord Rangers.
There was a dream start for The White Tigers when straight from kick-off an inviting cross from the left by Connor Riley-Lowe found the head of Cody Cooke who made no mistake.
The opening goal came within the opening 20 seconds but the visitors looked to get back into the game straight away with a couple of half-chances that came to nothing.
An effort from Tyler Harvey took a deflection which forced a good save out of the visitors’ ‘keeper as we looked to double our advantage.
We were looking the most likely side as the half went on and we managed to double our advantage on 27 minutes when Ed Palmer curled home a free-kick with much aplomb to give the ‘keeper no chance.
The White Tigers always looked in control during the opening period as we played with plenty of endeavour and determination without creating too many further scoring opportunities.
There was a half-chance for the visitors on the stroke of half-time when Knight’s header was easily gathered by Tom McHale as we took a two-goal advantage into the second period.
It was a bright start to the second half from The White Tigers with some nice passages of play and our first sight of goal saw Cooke draw a smart save from the ‘keeper.
There were chances at either end as Harvey went close as he lifted the ball just over. We were looking solid as a unit to keep our opponents at bay despite their best efforts.
As we entered the final 20 minutes, a free-kick from the visitors found the head of Knight who was off target as Concord enjoyed a spell of pressure as they searched for a way back into the game.
Ben Gerring was forced out of the action late on as we held our two-goal advantage and secured a precious three points.
