  • Basingstoke Town 2 Hayes & Yeading 0
  • Manny Williams scores at the back post from Tom Bird's corner on 33 minutes.
  • Simon Dunn puts in the rebound after Liam Enver-Marum's shot hits the post to make it 2-0 after 42 minutes.
  • Town have the better of the second-half, but they are unable to add to their tally.


Basingstoke Town manager Jason Bristow talking after the win said: "They made it difficult for us early on playing five across the back.

"Once we got the goal from the set piece the game opened up and we could have scored more today, but I am happy with the 2-0 win and another clean sheet."

Next up for the Dragons is a trip to local rivals Farnborough on Monday (kick-off 3pm), who enjoyed their first win of the season on Saturday 2-1 at Wealdstone.

Bristow is likely to have to shuffle his side due to a couple of injuries in the Hayes game.

 Rob Rice suffered a cut eye and Simon Dunn a dead leg so both are douftful for the trip.

Bristow said: "We are playing well at the moment and I hope we can carry on our winning run at Farnborough."

Listen out for Jason Bristow on Radio 5 Live at 8.15pm this evening.

At the moment he will be a happy man.


A very entertaining opening 45 minutes and Hayes have a lot to do after the break if they are to keep their perfect start going.

They do look dangerous going forward with some physical forwards, so Town will need to stay switched on.
