Dragon got back into the title race with this win at top of the table Orbital.

Dragon were lively at the start and played the ball around well, doing some neat one-twos which gave Orbital problems, as they preferred to pump the ball up front.

The first chance fell to forward Viran Amin, who saw his shot go just wide. Dragon thought they had a penalty when Lee Boarman's run into the Orbital area ended with him being brought down, but the referee waved play-on. Rees Frost, Mark Horsfield and Paul Scholfield all had shots saved by the keeper.

Orbital opened the scoring when Dragon failed to clear the ball following a corner, and a striker shot through a packed area.

The second half saw Dragon play the best football of the season, with every player giving 100 per cent. They got a deserved goal when Steve Horsfield's shot was handled on the line by an Orbital player. Lee Boarman stepped up to take the spot kick and sent the keeper the wrong way.

Dragon's defence was solid, and restricted Orbital to only one shot at goal, which was saved by Mick McFadzean.

Left back and man-of-the-match Paul Scholfield had a great chance when he brought down Steve Horsfield's cross and shot, only for it to go over.

Dragon were totally on top, and with midfielders Dan Stanton and Lee Boarman controlling things it was only a matter of time before they got a second goal.

Mark Horsfield was brought down just outside the area, and Rees Frost hit a great shot, which went onto the top left hand corner of Orbital's goal.

Sub Jamie Frost came on and nearly made it three when his lob went over the keeper and the bar.

Manager Mark Peach was delighted and said: "This was a very important result for us and the lads gave 100 per cent and played some great football."
