Slazenger continued their winning run with a solid victory over a strong Sunderland team.
They took the lead early on with James Swinden pouncing on a loose ball in Sunderland’s defence’s area and slotted it past their outstretched keeper.
But the home side leveled the scores with their next attack. It was a clinical finish from close-range.
The goal boosted Sunderland’s confidence and they mounted several attacks but they were repelled by an excellent defensive play.
And midway through the first half, Slazenger scored their second goal with an accurately placed short corner from Keith Whittle.
Slazenger put the home side under even more pressure and it told. They scored again through a slick passing movement, which created an opportunity for Whittle. He took his goal very well.
The second half followed a similar pattern to the end of the first, with Slazenger having most of the possession but they were not always able to make it count.
They went in search of more goals and left themselves open to counter attacks from Sunderland. But outstanding goalkeeping from man of the match James Crowden kept the home side out.
And Slazenger did score neat the end of the game. It was a quality goal from Kevin Winder at the top of the D.
This was a well-deserved win for Slazengers and hopefully they can keep it going in their next home game against Sheffield University Bankers.
