Jordan Hughes (31)



This fast paced game saw both teams struggle to gain control and Knockbreda will consider themselves lucky to have come out of it with all three points.

The visitors were denied the lead by a fine save by home 'keeper Jordan Williamson to prevent a deflected own goal.

'Stute then had the ball in the net only for it to be disallowed for an infringement.

On 31 minutes a good 'Breda passing move led to a shot cannoning off the post and when it fell into the path of striker Jordan Hughes the ball struck his leg and rather fortunately ended up it the back of the net.

The second half saw both teams have half chances and when the final whistle came 'Breda had Williamson to thank for holding on to a 1-0 win and three grateful points.
