Bridgwater Town Res 2

Watchet 3

WATCHET made the short trip to Bridgwater on Wednesday night and chalked up their first league win of the season after twice trailing to penalties.

In an error-strewn first half, the visitors made many of their own problems and fell behind when a soft-looking penalty was awarded and Hembery scored from the spot.

Damion Redman’s shot on the turn struck a post before Watchet equalised as the interval approached when good work from Tom Sparks led to strike partner Aaron Deeks sweeping the ball home.

After Sparks had looked to be floored inside the box, the visitors fell behind again when Redman was adjudged to have deliberately handled a cross and Hembery was again successful from the spot.

It was then Watchet’s turn to receive a dubious penalty as Redman went tumbling inside the area and Jamie Milton kept his head to put them level again.

For the second year running in this fixture, Watchet then gained a late winner when an astute pass from Deeks sent Sparks through to score despite the keeper getting his fingertips to his shot.

Watchet: A Bishop, C Sully, M Heywood, J Milton, E Harding, M Bailey, R Strong, C Clausen, D Redman, A Deeks, T Sparks, subs J Worth, G Dawson, B Jones (all used).
