DOWNTON made it four wins on the trot as they won at Alton in the Wessex League Division One.

The Robins really played very well for the opening 25 minutes of the first half.

They looked extremely comfortable football on the 3G surface and their passing was excellent with James Clark and Romero were very lively on the wings.

The first chance fell to Declan Mcgregor with some neat work from TJ Moseley and a pin perfect cross could only see Mcgregor’s shot clear the crossbar.

The Robins soon found themselves a goal down completely against the run of play, when a dubious decision saw a throw in on the wing given to Alton.

With many players still disputing the decision Alton punished the Robins with a great cross and a good finish and went in 1-0 up at the break.

The second half saw Downton knock the ball around nicely with excellent work again from Romero and Clarke. They both continued to cause the Alton defence problems.

Five minutes after the interval, the in form Moseley skipped by two defenders only to be brought down for a penalty which he coolly slotted home to level the score.

Downton’s tails were up and the ball was being pushed around nicely.

The Robins' defence stood strong and soaked up some heavy pressure and Downton countered with wave after wave of attacks.

They took the lead again from the penalty spot as Romero picked the ball up in his own half and beat four players before being brought down in the box.

Moseley again fired home to leave the ball firmly wedged in the stanchion.

The Robins held onto the lead with Ben Smith and Liam Dance soaking up some last minute pressure.

Manager Ben Smith said: "Again we showed great character to come from behind. This was a real solid performance from everyone and it’s a very hard place to come as we are not used to their surface, but we adjusted quickly and all credit to the lads they were all outstanding."

Tomorrow night, Downton are in action at home to Hamworthy United in the third round of the League Cup.
