Team news

Ola Sogbanmu came in for Omar Koroma after Monday's victory over Whitehawk, while Jacob Mendy was back among the substitutes. Ex-Robins Jordan Clarke, Hakeem Adelakun and Mu Maan were in the visitors' squad.


Kick-off

It was Casuals that started the quicker of the two sides and, on five minutes, Clarke haunted his old club for the second time this season.


Juevan Spencer got behind our defence but Warren Mfula couldn't get on his low pullback. The ball rolled across the area and Clarke, although under pressure, sidefooted home to put Casuals ahead much like he did in the cup fixture earlier this season, albeit this time he was much closer to goal.


Spencer got in again just two minutes later and he tried to pick out Mfula again, but this time Bobby Price got a tackle in and the ball was cleared.
