KJM SPORT REPORT Bodmin Town 3 Wadebridge 0

SWPL logoFrom the depths of despair a week earlier Bodmin Town bounced back with a Christmas special performance to beat rivals Wadebridge Town.

Their 3-0 win in front of 305 supporters at Priory Park on Boxing Day came courtesy of two goals from in-form striker Dan Jennings and a last minute Jason Vincent strike.

Bodmin manager Darren Gilbert said: “The result has lifted everybody because we couldn’t have got much lower than we felt after we lost at Penryn the week before.

“It was a good all-round performance, we showed grit and determination, which has been missing from our game in recent weeks.

“From the first few tackles, I knew the players were up for it.”

Jennings struck twice in three minutes midway through the first half to put Bodmin in charge and he should have completed his hat-trick two minutes into the second half but the opportunity went begging.

Bodmin looked reasonably comfortable at 2-0 and the icing on the Christmas cake came in the 90th minute with a great finish from Vincent.

Gilbert said: “DJ was clinical, we were strong at the back, and generally I was very pleased with the levels of performance.

“To be honest we’ve played well in a lot of games but haven’t been able to score the goals.

“The thing our players have to realise is that every Bodmin Town game is a cup final for our opponents.

“I’m not being big headed but because of what we have achieved over the years, teams want to beat us. We are a big scalp for other clubs to get.”

Bodmin now switch attention to next Monday’s Walter Parson League Cup third round away to Wendron United.

Gilbert said: “Wendron are going well so it’s going to be a tough ask to win there but hopefully the result against Wadebridge will inspire us to do it.”
