LAVESTOCK and Ford's run of three league wins on the spin was ended at Romsey Town on Saturday, as they lost 2-1

In a game of little quality both sides found the uneven surface difficult to muster and neither could produce many memorable moments early on. Alex Aguer in the visitors goal made his first block on 20 minutes, and four minutes later could do nothing when a shot from the angle took a wicked deflection and looped beyond him for the home side's opener.

Romsey continued the press and Aguer was again called into action to deny them a second.

As half time loomed large, a hopeful ball from Peter Fletcher was not dealt with and Lewis Wakeford struck a thunderbolt from 20-yards which rattled in off the post to give his side an equaliser.

The lifeline should have given Lavvy a reason to kick on in the second half, but again they started slow and the home side saw a couple of long range efforts miss the target.

Seb Dawes and Russ Jones were introduced but were unable to stamp their authority on the game, as the game was petering out.

However, hesitancy in the visitor's backline saw a ball teed up for former Lavvy player James Clifton who volleyed home an unstoppable effort which proved to be the winner for his side.

The visitors pressed in the final minutes but were unable to sneak a equaliser and left the Bypass Ground empty handed.

After the game manager Liam McConnell said: "We got what we deserved today based on our below par performance. For some reason we couldn't get ourselves going today and Romsey were certainly the busier team.

"The performance was low energy and certainly not up to our standard but now we have to dust ourselves off and go again and they don't come more exciting than Bemerton on Tuesday."

On Tuesday night, Laverstock lost 1-0 to Bemerton with the winner being an own goal.

On saturday, Lavvy are at home to Whitchurch United.
