Bath City claim first home win since November against Tonbridge Angels
Head coach Lee Howells’ attacking approach was rewarded with three goals and three Blue Square Bet South points as Bath City beat ten-man Tonbridge Angels 3-0 to record their first home win since November.
Howells gave Kerry Morgan a rare start and saw the winger set up Noah Keats for City’s first on the stroke of half-time and then double the lead with an assured finish. Morgan was also brought down by Ollie Schulz, resulting in the Angels defender receiving a straight red card, before Charlie Griffin wrapped up a confidence-boosting victory by tapping home Elliott Chamberlain’s cross.
After knocking on the door, City made the breakthrough on the stroke of half-time with a goal that was started and finished by Keats.
He picked the ball up in midfield and rolled it to Adam Connolly, who in turn fed Morgan on the right.

His cross was only partially cleared by Angels defender Gary Elphick, straight to the feet of Keats, whose stinging shot hit goalkeeper Worgan and rolled towards the line.
Griffin tried to force it in, but saw his shot hit the post and spin across the face of goal, where Keats was following up to smash the ball home.
The hosts made it two when Chamberlain won possession in midfield and produced a perfectly-weighted pass to send Morgan racing through to slot a shot past Worgan.
After Schulz was dismissed, the visitors’ misery was compounded in the 66th minute when Keats fed Chamberlain, who rolled the ball across goal to give Griffin a simple tap-in to ensure the Romans would be victorious.
Bath travel to Eastbourne tomorrow (7.45pm).
