Lancers lose 4-2 to Uckfield


Death and Hendy pulled back 2 late goals on Saturday.

Some changes in the starting line up for line Lancing in their away fixture at AFC Uckfield. No Jonathan Lansdale, missing with a knee injury, so Stephen Jackson was able to step in. Nicolas Di Arienzo was recalled to a five man defence with Alex Bygraves, Josh Clayman, Liam Hendy, and Louis Pittock. Some new faces on the bench with the inclusion of Under 18 players, Kieran Small, Harrison Longley and Under 23s player Adam Carlier.

Lancing were under pressure for most of the first half and Ben Purkis was by far the busier of the two keepers. He was called upon several times to make important saves. Some desperate defending managed to keep Uckfield at bay. A number of free kicks were conceded which increased the pressure on The Lancers. Uckfield’s no 7 Dee Okojie was the main threat for Uckfield attacking down the Lancing left and it was he who scored for the home team on 42 minutes after a quick breakaway saw him burst clear.

Uckfield were coping better with the poor ground surface and with the second half barely five minutes old Ben Purkis was again called into action diving to his right to push away for a corner a dipping volley from 30 yards. From the resultant corner Uckfield scored with a close range header. Lancing were unable to mount a serious threat on the Uckfield goal and on 64 minutes Okojie got his second.

A great block by Liam Hendy prevented a certain goal but the ball fell kindly to Okojie who made no mistake from 5 yards. Adam Carlier replaced Matt Daniel.

On 75 minutes a long punt upfield fell to Okojie who teed the ball up nicely for Matt Maclean to put Uckfield four up. Shortly afterwards Liam Hendy gave Lancing some hope heading home well from a corner. This seemed to spur Lancing on for a mini recovery.

Michael Death scored the goal of the game with a superb long range strike. Josh Clayman came close with a header. Kieran Small and Harrison Longley were introduced but Lancing were unable to make any further progress at reducing the arrears.

Some glum faces at the end of the game from players and supporters and, with Chichester next up, Lancing need to rediscover more of an attacking threat.

My man of the match: Ben Purkis.

Prize for the highest clearances I have ever witnessed goes to Liam Hendy !!!!
