Injury Time Woes as Ramsgate Strike Late


Heath hit hard in Injury time for the second week running as Ramsgate take all three points from Hanbury

Ramsgate picked up their second win on the bounce thanks to a stoppage winner from Trey Williams as Heath lost ground in the hunt for a play off place as the felt defeat for the first time in 11 matches

Heath seem to be suffering from the new year blues as the first 45 minutes saw the visitors go 2-0 up thanks to an over head effort from Tom Chapman on 20 minutes and then with 6 minutes to play before the break Heath failed to deal with a long throw and Aaron Millbank took full advantage heading in.

Heath had started brightly enough will Max Millers header in the first minute beating the keeper but he had strayed just offside, but with Nathan Cooper ill, Kieran Rowe Injured and Kane Louis failing a fitness test prior to kick off a reshuffled Heath team failed to get any real cohesion at times.

Ramsgate played direct and this gave them several good chances with the closest from Rory Smith who struck the bar from 25 yards with Josh Heyburn beaten.

During the course of the first half both sides had good shouts for penalties with Josh Heyburn seemingly bringing down Trey Williams and at the other end Melford Simpson clearly pulled back but the referee sided with the defence both times.

Heath's best effort fell to Callum Saunders who forced the keeper Luke Watkins into a good save but had Saunders looked up both Max Miller and Lewis Finney were waiting for the square ball and a tap in.

Half Time - Heath 0-2 Ramsgate

The second half saw Ramsgate having another penalty appeal turned down before Heath finally upped their game and were rewarded on 66 minutes when substitute Alex Laing lobbed Ramsgate keeper Luke Watkins to give Heath hope.

Melford Simpson almost levelled things 6 minutes later when his effort crashed against the bar but the comeback was complete on 74 minutes when Callum Saunders was tripped and he stepped up to convert the resulting penalty.

Ramsgate again responded but found Josh Heyburn in fine form as he turned Tom Chapman's effort from distance onto the post.

It was to be Ramsgate’s day however as deep into injury time a ball across the box found Trey Williams at the far post and he smashed in for a deserved winner for the visitors.

Full Time – Haywards Heath 3-2 Ramsgate

Heath will have to re group this week before a tough trip to Hythe Town who sit 1 place and two points behind Heath in 7th place in the table.
