Pat Harding in action yesterday afternoon.

Goals from Lloyd Rowlatt and Scott Jones did enough to claim all three points for the visitors.

A fairly dull opening forty-five minutes saw the visitors take a two-goal lead in at the break – with Rowlatt finishing off a smart move and Jones capitalising on another defensive mishap.

The Hillians came out firing in the second half and certainly looked the brighter of the two sides. In the 56th minute, the deficit was halved as Warren Mfula converted from the spot – after Corey Heath was given his marching orders for a last ditch challenge on the Hillians number nine. However, the Hill had a man sent off of their own, as Max Miller received a second yellow card for simulation. The visitors held out for the win on a poor afternoon for Simon Wormull’s men.

Match sponsor, Amanda Christensen Personal Training awarded Ryan Palmer with the MOTM award – with the tricky winger looking lively throughout.

Thank you to all you Hillians for your support yesterday afternoon – your efforts deserve better at the moment.
