Sendings Off

Windsor produced a first half masterclass in clinical finishing to seal the points and wrack up a 3rd straight league victory.

On a wet day Windsor got off to the perfect start with a fortuitous goal from Keiran Knight after just for minutes.

Abbey's keepers clearance striking Knight before rolling into an empty net.

The teams exchanged fast moving attacks before Abbey equalised in the tenth minute. A ferocious shot from the edge of the area beating Sobte.

Abbey caused Windsor problems for a ten minute period after the goal, Sobte making two excellent saves and building the platform for Windsor to fire themselves ahead.

George Gould, his third game back since returning to the club, fired in a top corner effort from 20 yards.

Windsor looked more composed from that moment. The impressive Luke Wretham breaking and building from midfield.

It was Robert Lazarczuk who provided a slide rule pass for Nadir Shafi to extend the lead. Shafi slotting past the keeper after out-running the defender.

Keiran Knight scored shortly after. His edge of the area low drive deceiving the away keeper. Lazarczuk again involved with a 30 yard cross field reverse ball.

There was time for Abbey to strike the home sides post but Windsor went in 4-1 to the good.

Clearly Windsor were briefed to get the job done and manage the game in the second half. A mature 45 minutes saw victory secured.

There were chances for Knight to complete his hatrick. Gould launched a ball into the Great Park from the edge of the area and Dunbar had a couple of half chances.

At the other end Sobte kept Abbey at bay and the impressive Harry Tucker marshalled the defence alongside Ashley Smith.

Abbey gave themselves hope with 13 minutes to play. Good work out wide resulted in the centre forward turning in a great cross.

Bewildering, Windsor did manage to accumulate bookings in a match devoid of bad challenges and foul language and that was perhaps the only negative on another good day.
