Late winner sets Blues up for Vase

Buchanan seals three points for Dunstable

In a real game of two halves, Dunstable Town warmed up for their big FA Vase fourth round home tie with Willand Rovers on Saturday, by stunning Kentish Town with a late winner on Tuesday night.

Having lost 1-0 at Hanwell on Saturday, the Blues bounced back with a 2-1 win in Molten Spartan SML Premier.

Dunstable may have put 10 goals past Town in the two league games last season, but inspired by a new manager, the Londoners were the better side in the first half and took the lead in freakish fashion.

Keeper Paul Taylor parried a cross and central defender Lucas Flood’s clearance struck Kevin Grzabka and rebounded into the net on 34 minutes.

The visitors could have had more, but Dunstable manager Darren Feighery’s half time team talk seemed to have the desired effect. He made a number of substitutions and replacement James Potter duly delivered as he sliced through a packed defence to level eight minutes into the second half.

Kentish Town grimly tried to cling on, but despite a plethora of great chances it was not until the 89th minute that defender and skipper Graeme Buchanan fired home the winner.

On Tuesday the Blues entertain Harefield United.
