Poole Town 2-1 Welling United

A last gasp winner from Sam Surridge meant The Wings returned home from Dorset empty handed. With Welling leading at half time Poole Town turned the game on its head in the 2nd half as The Wings recent upturn in good results came to an end.

The home side started well and Lee Wort saw a shot blocked before Steve Devlin fsmashed the rebound over the bar.

Welling responded and trickery from Lyle Della-Verde saw the Wings man fouled on the edge of the box, Dean Morgan flashed the free kick just wide.

The game opened up, but it was Poole looking the more likely to score and some last ditch defending from Danny Waldren prevented an excellent opportunity for The Dolphins.

Chris Lewington saved a header from Jamie Whisken, Lewis Lindsay hit the post from the rebound.

However in the 15th minute, Welling took the lead. Danny Waldren burst into the box after some nice play to set him free. Lewis Lindsay bundled him over and a penalty was awarded. Up stepped Dean Morgan who slotted the penalty home.

Poole no doubt feeling aggrieved to be behind responded well and Richard Gillespie shot straight at Lewington.

Chris Lewington then needed to be on top form to keep out a header from Gillespie as he clawed away his goal bound effort.

With half time approaching Gillespie then chip an effort wide after bursting clear.

Poole carried on from where they left off into the 2nd half and Luke Burbridge went close early on.

However on the hour mark, The Dolphins equalised. Devlin hit a free kick against the the wall, Lee Wort was quickest to react to the rebound and despite a great save from Lewington the static Welling defence could only watch as Whisken headed home the loose ball on the line.

Welling tried to rally as Adam Coombes drew a good save from Hutchings.

Sub Dan Walker then made space for himself but shot wide from the angle.

Poole had plenty of the ball as Welling withdrew into themselves and Lewington saved well again from Gillespie.

As the game came to its conclusion Welling felt they had an appeal for a penalty Fuseini made his way into the area and he went down under a tackle but the appeals were waved away.

With the match now into the injury time Poole grabbed the late winner. The Wings unable to contain one last Poole attack and Sam Surridge was played in and slotted the ball past Lewington. It was a cruel blow on Welling but they were punished for sitting to deep in the second half.

Welling return to Park View Road on Saturday as Swindon Supermarine are the visitors in the FA Cup 3rd Qualifying Round.

Welling United: Lewington, Nelson, Brown, Fuseini, Hayles, Leacock, Joseph-Dubois, Waldren, Morgan, Coombes (Slabber 81), Della-Verde (Walker 59). Unused Substitutes: Young, Johnson, Hatton.

Wings trying to avoid a dip at Poole

Welling United travel to Dorset on Saturday to play Poole Town with the Wings looking to make it three wins on the bounce. The Wings gained a much needed victory vs Eastbourne Borough in the league and then cruised through in the FA Cup away at Whyteleafe in their last two matches.

Manager Mark Goldberg spoke to WingsTV ahead of Saturday’s trip “We can’t underestimate that they’ve done well up until last week in the FA Cup, from what we know about them they are going to be physically strong. We’ve got to go there with confidence off the back of two wins but we can’t go gung-ho”

The Welling United boss is looking for the Wings to compete and earn the right to play. “We’ve got to be disciplined and make sure we do the hard work off the ball before we hope the confidence that is there starts working for us. We do believe we can go there and at least get a point, we’ve still only got 8 points from 11 games and that’s not good enough so we’ve got to go and get some points… starting on Saturday”

Whyteleafe 0-2 Welling United

Second half goals from Adam Coombes and Rickie Hayles secured The Wings passage into the FA Cup 3rd Qualifying Round. After dominating the first period, Welling had to be patient but were rewarded with a more than workmanlike display.

Importantly Welling were out of the blocks quickly and they took the game to Whyteleafe.  Adam Coombes low shot from a rebound caused confusion when the effort deflected off of Vernon Francis but keeper Luke Colquhoun saved well with his legs.

Rickie Hayles met a Della-Verde corner with an athletic header that bounced off of the artificial surface and over the bar.

Welling came agonisingly close to taking the lead when Coombes sent a smart ball through to Della-Verde who burst clear, he shot low but his effort came back off the inside of the post and was cleared.

Whyteleafe were struggling to get a grip on the game but they did have a half chance as Sam Clayton struck his free kick directly into the Welling wall before smashing the rebound over the bar.

But back came the Wings and Pierre Joseph-Dubois should have put Welling ahead. Fresh from his double on Tuesday night, he burst clear rounding Luke Colquhoun before striking an effort wide from an acute angle.

Welling were keeping Colquhoun busy as the stopper saved from the lively Coombes before producing an even better save from Della-Verde who looked destined to score.

Welling were in total control but just failed to capitalise on the chances that came and went.

Mitchell Nelson burst down the right and produced a cross for Coombes but his header lacked conviction.

Andrew Mensah struck a warning shot to The Wings as he hit an effort into the side netting. Before Coombes had the last chance of the half but his shot was deflected away.

Into the second half and early on Coombes had the ball in the back of net but his effort was goal disallowed.

After this Whyteleafe had their best spell of the match with Lewington making two fine saves, low down to his right.

But in the 70th minute, Welling broke the deadlock. A low corner from Della-Verde was met at the near post by Coombes who produced a neat deft finished.

Welling tails were up and Della-Verde shot wide before sub Dan Walker saw a shot saved.

The Hosts then had Owen Roberts sent off for a terrible tackle on Archie Johnson. Roberts rightly shown a straight red card for his wild lunge.

But with time ticking Welling secured there passage to the next round. On the stroke of full time, another Della-Verde corner was met this time by Rickie Hayles who headeded home unchallenged. Much to the delight of the travelling Welling fans.

That was mission completed, with a patient display that was also rewarded with a clean sheet, which would have pleased manager Mark Goldberg.

Welling now now have a week to recover before travelling down to Dorset to play Poole Town in the National South.

Welling United: Lewington, Nelson, Johnson, Fuseini, Hayles, Leacock, Joseph-Dubois (Hatton 90), Waldren, Coombes (Slabber 82), Morgan (Walker 68), Della-Verde. Unused Substitutes: Agu, Thompson-Martelly.

Attendance: 231
