Hartley Wintney suffered another defeat at home as Merthyr Town claimed the points, thanks to two goals in the last 10 minutes.

The Row started well and dominated most of the first half. It looked like the Hartley pressure had been rewarded on 27 minutes when a slick move saw Paul Hodges cross from the left and Zidan Akers scored. However the celebrations were cut short with an offside decision.

On 34 minutes the Row finally went ahead when a cross from the left by Zidan Akers was headed home by Paul Hodges. (1-0)

Merthyr improved after the break and took a firm grip of the match.

On 57 minutes Frazer Thomas found room at the edge of the penalty area and his parting shot was pushed around the post by Row keeper Damian Niemczycki.  Despite being in the ascendancy the Martyrs struggled to create any chances and Niemczkcki was not called to make any saves.

However the Martyrs turned the games on its head over a three-minute period with two goals. In the 81st minute  a ball played into the Row penalty area saw defensive indecision and Matthew Harris took full advantage shooting home from the edge of the penalty area. (1-1)

The Row almost had an immediate response as Akers showed good skill to create a decent chance for himself.

However, Fuller came out and parried the shot from a tight angle. However, it was the South Wales side who scored the winning goal just two minutes later. 

A long ball forward found the Hartley defence all at sea leaving Craig Norman to lob over the stranded Row keeper Niemczycki for the winner. (1-2)
