Result all that matters for Tonbridge boss Tommy Warrilow after Angels leave it late to beat Merthyr Town in FA Trophy
Tonbridge Angels boss Tommy Warrilow admitted he was relieved to
get through to the FA Trophy second round after Lee
Browning’s late show in Wales.
Browning headed home in the fourth minute of injury-time to
clinch a 2-1 victory over Merthyr Town on Tuesday and set up a
clash with Dartford.
Warrilow, pictured, said: "We didn’t play well but we
dug in and got a result and the main thing was to get through. Our
back four were brilliant but we kept trying to play in the wrong
areas and ended up giving the ball away.
"It wasn’t a night for playing football. It was a night for
turning teams round quickly and getting in behind them but we
didn’t do it enough."
Sonny Miles put Angels in front on 21 minutes after Olly
Schulz’s header was saved but a controversial penalty award against
Gary Elphick – nobody knew what it was for – saw Merthyr level just
before the hour.
A replay was on the cards before good work down the right from
Frannie Collin led to Browning’s winner.
Tonbridge are staying overnight in Cornwall ahead of their Blue
Square Bet South match at bottom side Truro on Saturday, but
midfielder Chris Piper misses the game with a one-match ban.
