Cinderford Town 2-3 Frome

Updated: Oct 26, 2021

Frome recovered from a two-goal half-time deficit to secure a win at Cinderford on Saturday afternoon, thanks in no small part to a hat-trick from Kane Simpson.

Simpson struck three times in 12 second half minutes to ensure the Robins unbeaten run in the league would continue, helping to overcome a difficult opening 45 minutes.

Despite controlling possession and testing home goalkeeper Nicholas Jones regularly, Frome fell behind after 17 minutes at the Causeway Ground when Cinderford forward Camden Duncan cut in from the right wing and bent a left-footed shot beyond James Carey.

Danny Greaves’ side went in search of a quick-fire equaliser, working Jones on several more occasions, but were caught out on the counter-attack before the half-hour as Jack Freeman found space on the edge of the penalty area to fire home a deflected second goal for the hosts.

Without playing particularly badly, the Robins found themselves with a mountain to climb at the interval.

They came out for the second half with plenty of impetus, dominating both territory and possession as they searched for a way back into the game.

The goal that halved the deficit came in fortunate circumstances as Simpson shot for goal after the home side failed to clear a corner and the ball trickled over the line after a series of deflections.

There was no doubt about the equaliser though. Jack Witcombe hung a cross up to the back post, James Ollis headed back across goal, and Simpson was in the right place to nod the ball over the line.

The striker had his third of the afternoon just minutes later, shrugging off a defender and cooly slotting home after bearing down on goal.

Despite the chaotic nature of the game, the Robins saw out the win with relative comfort, extending their unbeaten start in the league to eight games in the process.

Frome are back in action on Tuesday night, with Winchester City visiting Badgers Hill in the league.
