Report: Whyteleafe 2-1 Corinthian Casuals
Whyteleafe took the spoils against promotion-chasing Casuals in this keenly contested all-action game.
Striker Tommy Hutchings headed Leafe into the lead on 25 minutes, meeting a fierce Lanre Azeez cross from the right. Hutchings doubled his tally nine minutes later, his left-footed shot from 25 yards deflected up, to loop over stranded keeper Danny Bracken into the net. After the break, the visitors rallied, but Leafe had two further chances from Hutchings and Vance Bola, both bravely thwarted by the advancing Bracken. Casuals scored on 82 minutes, with a lob from distance, setting up a dramatic finale that saw an equaliser denied by an offside flag in injury time.
Whyteleafe return to league action this coming Saturday as John Scarborough and Paul Dales men visit East Grinstead Town in search of their fifth win in six league games.
