Heath come from behind to take all three points
By Stuart Morgan
Heath recovered from going behind early on to take all three points away from Faversham Town
It was a really slow start from Heath who found themselves a goal down after just three minutes and Favershams first attack, George Brown missed the areal ball and the the ball across the box was first dummied by Dean Grant before Ashley Miller found the corner.
Faversham 1-0 Heath
In truth Heath struggled to find any pattern of play and were wasteful through much of the opening 30 minutes, loose and blind passes saw the ball turned over far to easily but Faversham failed to take advantage with Josh Heyburn only called into action twice making two smart saves from efforts from distance.
With 33 minutes played Heath finallystarted to feel their way into the game and although against the run of play a n equaliser was welcomed by the traveling support. Max Miller finally found some space on the right and his deep ball to the far post was not dealt with by Tom Benham in the hosts goal, Luke Robinson managed to squeeze the ball back across goal and new signing Andrew Dalhouse diverted the ball using his chest into the back of the net.
Faversham 1-1 Heath
The goal really did lift Heath and with 40 minutes played Nathan Cooper saw a firm effort first blocked and the rebound then fired over, Heath felt the first effort was block by hands but the referee waved away any protests.
A good move from Faversham just a minute later ended with an effort from distance just clearing the bar.
On the stroke of half time both managers prepared half time team talks took a sudden u-turn as Max Miller and Sean Roddy combined on the right and the Irishman's pin point cross was brilliantly met by Kieran Rowe who headed in his second goal in two games.
Half Time - Faversham 1-2 Heath
The second half was almost a carbon copy of the first as Heath took a good 10 minutes to get started but with 57 played a Max Miller and Karly Akehurst combined for the later to put Miller through but as he pulled the trigger a brilliant covering block prevented the keeper from working.
Just two minutes later it the match was all square again as Nathan Cooper was unable to get out of the way as the advancing attacker clattered into him and much to many's amusement or annoyance the hosts were awarded a penalty, Danny Walder stepped up and made no mistake tying the game up sending Josh Heyburn the wrong way.
Faversham 2-2 Heath
It was once again anyone's game and but for a fine save Karly Akehurst would have put Heath ahead again after some super footwork inside the Faversham box .
With 67 minutes on the clock it was Akehust who regained Heath's one goal advantage from the spot , in the build up a shot was blocked by the covering defender and the referee adjudged that hands were used. Karly Akehurst stepped up and found the bottom corner despite the keeper going the right way.
Faversham 2-3 Heath
Three minutes later it was all but game over as Andrew Dalhouse and Lewis Finney worked hard on the left to force a rushed ball out and Kieran Rowe took no time in seeing the keeper out of position and firing past him from 25 yards.
Faversham 2-4 Heath
Faversham now desperate to get back into the game pushed men on but Josh Spinks and Byron Napper conrolled the spine and the only effort to note in the final 15 minutes was a well worked move by the hosts but the final effort lacked any power to trouble Josh Heyburn.
Full Time - Faversham 2-4 Heath
Man of the Match - Kieran Rowe - exciting young talent now has 3 goals in his last two games
Afterwards Manager Shaun Saunders said "We didn't start either half very well and were punished, it is something that we need to sort in our game but in saying that the group of players we have here never give up and keep working for each other and once again got their just rewards with a fine 3 points on the road"
