Match Report v Stowmarket Town (League Cup)

LONG MELFORD 3 - 1 STOWMARKET TOWN

LEAGUE CHALLENGE CUP QUARTER FINAL - WED 6th FEBRUARY

The old cliche that league form goes out the window in cup football came true tonight as Long Melford (17th) knocked out Stowmarket Town (4th) and booked a place in the semi-finals of the Thurlow Nunn League Cup for the first time since joining the league. Match report from Chenoberet:

A sparkling performance ended in a convincing and fully deserved victory for Melford. 

After only six minutes Melford went ahead a long free kick released EMMANUEL MACHAYA who ran twenty five yards through the Stow defence to place the ball wide of Craig Brand in the Stow goal. 

Twice within minutes the livewire Machaya was foiled by the Stow back line. 

This was an inspirational performance from Melford and they continued to threaten the Stow goal. 

At the other end young Melford keeper Michael Bett made two great saves from Remi Garrett and Max Melanson to keep the home team in the lead. 

Things got no better for Stow in the second half with Melford always looking sharper going forward, backed by their resolute defence. 

The second goal came after 48 minutes when Machaya was brought down in the box and Melford skipper NATHAN ROWE converted from the penalty spot. 

It was no surprise on 53 minutes when Melford went further ahead, some great work by Machaya and Hassan Ally saw the ball go wide on the left to PABLO CHAVES who fired home from the angle to score his 10th goal of the season. 

Twice more Melford got into the box but Machaya went wide with his shots. 

Gradually Stowmarket started to get into the game, two goal line clearances by Melford and a goal disallowed for offside for Stowmarket. 

At last on 69 minutes JOSH MAYHEW netted for Stowmarket, but despite pressure the Melford defence was in fine form. 

Another great save by keeper Bett from Melanson, and a Sweeney shot cleared off the line. 

But in the end in heavy rain Melford ran out worthy winners, ready for the match of the season so far on Saturday against Framlingham at Stoneylands.  

MELFORD: Michael Bett, Scott Sloots, Will Wingfield (78), Archie Pether (45), Deklyn Roy, Anthony Waugh, Hassan Ally, Jacob Brown, Emmanuel Machaya, Nathan Rowe (55), Pablo Chaves 

Subs: Andy Fisher (45), Perry Newman (55), Conor Howard (78) 

not used: Max Maughn, David Lopez
