Taunton stretch out lead at the top


TAUNTON Town opened up a four-point lead at the top of Southern Premier South after gaining a hard-earned 1-0 victory on Walton Casuals' 3G pitch in Surrey.

Salisbury remain second, with a game in hand, despite having their home game against Farnborough called off because of the poor state of the pitch while title rivals Met Police and Weymouth fought out a thrilling 4-4 draw.
Rob Dray's boys began the game in Surrey with a slender one-point lead at the top but there was nothing edgy about their display.
They dominated the game in the first half, quickly settling on a surface which is foreign to them.
The only goal of the match came in the 21st minute when skipper Matt Wright crossed and Ryan Brett turned the ball home.
Taunton kept going forward in the first half and deservedly led 1-0 at the break.
A one-goal lead is never enough and Taunton goalkeeper Lloyd Irish was called upon to make a save from Dan Bennett early in the second half.
But Taunton resumed control of the match and Ollie Chamberlain and Rocky Neal both went close to adding to their lead.
Casuals stepped up the pressure towards the end but Taunton's defence never looked in any danger of conceding.
