Captain Angelo Simmons made amends for a first half penalty miss by scoring a second half winner as Dandy Town made it six straight wins at Police Field yesterday.

Simmons blew a chance on the half hour mark to break the deadlock when Nizigh Spence was fouled inside the Devonshire Colts penalty box. However, Simmons’s spot kick was not well-placed and goalkeeper Jahniko Francis made an easy save to his right.

Town created another good scoring chance just before the break when Cecoy Robinson intercepted an attempted pass out of defence by Calon Minors but put his effort wide.

Though third-placed Colts battled hard against their opponents, but Town always looked the more likely to score.

The league leaders continued to push Colts back early in the second half and were rewarded with the game’s only goal eleven minutes after the restart, when Kimali Davis broke through on the right and got into the box before sending in a cross for Simmons to apply the finishing touch from close range.

Town went close to adding a second minutes later when ‘keeper Francis made an important block to deny Spence before substitute Oneko Lowe, just on as a replacement for Cecoy Robinson, followed up to put the rebound over the bar.

Then Tomiko Goater lifted his effort over the top from an acute angle on the left side of the box as Town looked to secure the win.

Colts suffered a blow in the closing minutes when defender Zuhri Burgess needed treatment for a dislocated shoulder before being taken to hospital.
