Quick Read: Histon cause havoc to keep survival hopes alive

Posted on Updated on

Histon strengthened their survival chances with a massive home win 3-2 over Uxbridge on Saturday.

The visitors took the lead midway through the first half. A cross, from leading scorer Abobaker Eisa, was turned in at the near post by Thomas past a stranded Sam Roach.

The second half was a drastic improvement in the quality of football being played. Histon had an equaliser just minutes after the restart, Lewis Clayton bundling the ball just over the line after a long throw caused problems from Uxbridge.

Histon would take the lead in the 73rd minute. Another long throw was not dealt with by the visitors and Simon Unwin was on hand to rifle the ball into the net. Histon were not finished and they doubled their advantage on 75 minutes. A free kick was mishandled by Paul McCarthy and James Carman punished him to make it 3-1.

Histon played the last ten minutes a man down after Lewis Clayton received a second yellow for pulling back the Uxbridge skipper.

Uxbridge pulled back a late goal from the spot, Eisa netting his 20th goal of the season but it was Histon who rightly took all 3 points to keep their survival hopes alive.
