90+1.5 FULL TIME: Swans 4-2 Ar Tarn
Newport Pagnell climbed to second place in the table following victory over Desborough Town. However, the win looked far from likely after Ar Tarn took a healthy lead with two quick goals. The opening exchanges were fairly even but after falling behind the Swans stepped up a gear and began to control proceedings. They were thrown a lifeline when Fazel Koriya scored his first goal ten minutes before the break.
Desborough valiantly held onto their lead until it was the Swan’s turn to hit two quick goals to turn the scoreline on it’s head. Ar Tarn rallied well in search of an equaliser but it was Fazel Koriya who scored his fourth of the game to seal victory for the Swans.
