Its a Dereham double
Mead come from behind to seal road win...
DEREHAM TOWN 2-3 THE MEAD
The Mead secured just our second away win of 2017 with a come from behind in in Norfolk.
Goals from Ellis Brown, Kaka Dembele on his debut, and Alex Teniola's nineth goal of the season sealed the triumph as the Mead moved up two places to 13th in the Ryman North table.
The Mead went ahead on 14 minutes when Alex and Jay Porter combined brilliantly in setting up Brownie who's first shot was blocked only for Ellis to score the rebound. However, the home side were ahead at the break courtesy of two goals in the final eleven minutes of the half.
"We conceded another two poor goals," admitted the Gaffer, "but on the plus side I've got to be delighted with the way that we responded - creating chances and getting in better areas."
The Gaffer's half time words seemed to work as in the second half, the Mead rallied well, and duly equalised through the debut making Kaka just past the hour mark ho scored with a good header. The comeback was completed nine minutes from time when Alex sealed the points with another header and just the side's second away win of the calendar year and snapped a run which has seen just a solitary win in seven games.
The game though ended on a sour note for the Mead as Bode Anidugbe was shown two quick yellow cards in the space of a few minutes which saw the Mead end with ten men. Whilst it took some of the gloss off of the win, the Gaffer as honest when he said, "I felt that the first card was harsh, and yes if I'm honest the red card did take some of the gloss off of the win. I'm bitterly disappointed for Bode as I think he's having a great season, but I hope that he learns from these mistakes as a lot of people forget that he's still young - he'll learn!"
"But at the end of the day, its a great win - a really deserved one that I hope we can take into next week!"
