YATE Town's 10-match unbeaten run in the league came to an end on Saturday as a quickfire one-two from visitors and league leaders Wimborne Town secured a 2-0 victory at The South West Interiors Stadium.

Jack Lovell and Matt Burrows scored within two minutes of each other just after the half-hour mark to score the only goals of the game.

Yate Town manager Darren Mullings was forced to make a change to his settled side of recent games with Calum English-Brown still injured following knocks in the games at Willand and Evesham United. Mullings brought in Lewis Hall as he was forced to change the shape of the side.

After an even opening thirty minutes in which Yate Town captain Joe Guest went close with a header and Dylan Lewis forced a save from Ross Flitney, it was two quick-fire goals that won the game for Wimborne.

A Matt Neale free kick on the right, swung in with his left foot, was headed home by Lovell in the 31st minute and three minutes later, following a mistake in the Yate Town defence, Burrows found himself clear and he slotted the ball past Aaron Sainsbury.

Yate now had a mountain to climb and manager Darren Mullings brought on Mike Baker in place of Hall at the start of the second half as the first chance of the second period fell to Wimborne with Burrows firing wide.

Wimborne were content to sit back and hang on to their lead but Yate responded with Dylan Lewis being fouled on the edge of the penalty area after 63 minutes and Nick McCootie’s free-kick brought a fine save from Flitney who clung onto the ball at full stretch, down to his left.

Substitute Jack Ball headed wide following a Dylan Lewis free kick but chances were at a premium as the Wimborne defence, well marshalled by Sam Jackson, stood firm.
