Despite a slow start Timsbury eventually eased to a comfortable victory winning 4-1, in this Ulhsport Somerset County Div 1 fixture.
The home side were on the back foot from the kick off and it was no surprise that Nailsea took the lead within the first five minutes. A long ball from the back was helped on by Bracey who found his strike partner Collins clean through. He made no mistake beating the advancing Wilcox in the home goal to make it 0-1. Collins was unlucky 10 minutes later when his crisp strike from 20 yards struck the bar with the keeper well beaten.
Timsbury were back on level terms after 20 minutes somewhat against the run of play. A high ball from Ben Hancock meant that Allen in the Nailsea goal had to clear with his head from just outside his own box, the ball fell to the feet of Makombe who quickly gained control of it and clipped a fine shot into the roof of the net, evading two back-tracking defenders on the line.
Timsbury continued to press in the second half and Chris Midegly should have increased the lead further but his final shot was tame after wriggling past three defenders. A rare Ben Hancock shot flew over the bar after being set up by Cook.
Nailsea’s best chance to equalise came on the hour when Corneil dragged the ball back from the byline into the path of Bracey, but his shot failed to hit the target with the goal gapping.
Nailsea were made to pay immediately. More good work by Makombe found Cook in the box, his turn and shot was well saved by Allen but Neilson was on hand to score from the rebound. It was all Timsbury now, first a rising shot from Heatley just cleared the bar, then Makombe and Neilson combined well to feed Cook only for him to drag his shot wide. At the other end Wilcox safely tipped a free kick from Corneil over the bar.
Further chances fell to Cook, Neilson and Makombe before a fine run and cross from substitute Tim Midgely fell nicely to Cook in the box, who made no mistake with a fine finish to make the final score 4-1. Wilcox was called upon to make a fine save from Bracey which he pushed around the post for a corner.
