OVERTON United extended their winning run to three games after a 3-1 success over visiting Liss in the Hampshire Premier League The home side started brightly with Kieron Fuller going closest to breaking the deadlock with two great chances.

The visitors also looked dangerous going forward with their front line looking sharp, however the Overton back four worked well together to nullify the danger.

Liss almost took the lead with a shot that hit the upright as the side went in at half-time still level 0-0.

The second half was a tight affair, but the deadlock was broken by the visitors from the penalty spot after 55 minutes by David Harding, aftera foul in the box.

Overton responded well with plenty of pressure and with the Liss goalkeeper carrying a heavy knock, Overton stepped up the pressure.

This pressure told on 65 minutes, as Darren Turner headed home a Alex Jupp corner.

With the Liss goalie's injury getting worse, Overton made a tactical change and introduced Siyani Thomas to the front line and went more direct.

This change paid off with a long ball forward put Thomas in a battle with the visiting skipper.

Thomas won this battle to shrug him off with pace and power and duly dispatched to make it 2-1.

The Overton defence stood strong and was marshalled excellently by Turner.

Defence turned to attack late in injury time in which Thomas again won a battle of strength with the Liss skipper and scored his second of the game to complete a 3-1 victory.

His trademark gymnastic celebration entertained the home faithful on the final whistle.
