Pennar Robins 4
Pennar Robins scored two goals in each half to comfortably claim their third win of the season over Neyland.
The Nomads’ dreadful home form continued as they slumped to their eighth defeat of the campaign, as the Robins proved to be too good for them on the day.
The visitors broke the deadlock on 30 minutes, Johnny Badrock striking a low shot into the bottom corner of Nomads’ stand-in keeper Ollie Marshall’s net.
Ten minutes later and Joe Lewis fired home the second, following good work from Ben Nicholas and Wayne Brunton down the right, setting- up the scoring opportunity.
On the hour mark and substitute Phil Thompson made his mark, lobbing Marshall from fully 30 yards out.
Five minutes from the end and Thompson scored his second of the match following good work by Craig George.
“We played really well today,” said Robins manager Jimmy Probert. “That’s our second win on the bounce and we didn’t leak any goals.
I have to be pleased with that.”
