Goals from Greg Beckett and Danny Horscroft were enough to earn Woodley United a win in the Uhlsport Hellenic Premier Division at home to Brackley Town Saints on Monday night.

The visitors had taken the lead after five minutes but goals from the Kestrels midfield duo saw James Anderson’s side make it seven points from 15 in the five league games since the new manager took over.

Beckett’s goal came 22 minutes in to the first half, levelling the scores as he got on the end of a lofted ball over the Brackley defence. With just Dan Farrell in the Brackley goal to beat, the United forward blasted an unstoppable drive into the top right corner.

Woodley were then denied by Farrell twice in quick succession. A Beckett pass to Jaydyn Englefield on the right, saw the winger cut inside, the ball ricocheted to Carl Prestidge who was denied by the Brackley keeper’s legs.

United took the lead just after the hour when a deep free kick on the right was turned in at close range by Danny Horscroft after Michael Porter headed the initial set piece goalwards.
