Bristol Premier Combination Division One

Eden Grove 2 Olveston United 1

OLVESTON'S promotion hopes were dented in this away defeat at Eden Grove.

In a goalless first half, which saw the visitors continually pressurise the home defence, only fine saves from the goalkeeper denied Olveston taking a half-time lead as he kept out good efforts from both George Williams and Matt Knight.

The second half was evenly contested until Eden Grove were awarded a penalty and they made no mistake with the spot kick.

Soon afterwards they made it 2-0 until George Williams reduced the arrears with a penalty with five minutes to go.

Olveston should not really have lost this match and only fine saves by the Eden Grove keeper and missed chances cost them the game.
