Town made it 3 wins in the space of a week following a 1-0 victory at Chesham United yesterday afternoon (30 Mar).
The Peacocks started the brightest and dictated the tempo early with Josh Nelmes almost opening the scoring in the 21st minute when he headed Ryan Brett’s free kick wide of the post. As the game became even, Taunton’s skipper Matt Wright rose to meet Lewis Hall’s cross with a powerful header to break the deadlock one minute before half time.
The second half was a tight affair with neither side able to grab a goal thanks to some great goalkeeping from both men in between the sticks at either end meaning Town returned from The Meadow with all 3 points and another clean sheet.
Town have now mathematically secured a Play-Off position with 5 games remaining of the campaign.
Rob Dray remarked, “That was a proper performance against a very good side who have only been beaten just the once in the last 17 games. The boys were superb in every way on a difficult pitch. We had bodies missing and had made a long journey but from the off we looked sharp and did the basics better than we have done for a while. All in all it’s been a good week, 6 points , 2 clean sheets and we made it through to a cup final.”
