Dereham Town 1 Ware 2

Added time win lifts Ware into the play-off places and sets a number of records.

This was a win to distinguish the current season from the last. Twelve months ago Ware might easily have lost to a late goal in the same circumstances but this time round they held their nerve after conceding an equaliser and took the points with Yannick Kamanan's (who else?) late goal.

Dereham will doubtless feel deflated to have lost so late on in what was seemingly a close struggle and it will be no consolation to know that this is just what was happening to Ware last year. Almost exactly a year ago Ware lost at Aldiss Park when they had had a good share of the game but these things go round and for once the Blues could savour a moment of victory from a close contest.

It was an afternoon of record breaking as Ware achieved their first win at Dereham and Elliott Charles celebrated his first goal for the club. Ware also became the first club this season to take points from Dereham, the first opposition side to score at Aldiss Park and the first side to score more than one goal against the Magpies. As a result they climb into sixth place in the table.

There were chances at both ends with Dodden heading wide of Tom Coulton's goal when well placed before Denzel Conteh fired tamely at Elliot Pride in the home goal having done well to bring the ball under control.

The opening goal came four minutes from half time when Lee White came forward on the left and sent a cross in for Charles to head beyond Pride. Rhys Logan might have restored parity soon after but Coulton did well to save his shot. The home side had another chance to draw level after the half time restart but this time it was Sam Dodden whose side foot from inside the six yard box was easy for Coulton to collect.

Dereham did have their equaliser however and it came from Steve Taylor's long range free kick that floated over Coulton and into the net. Both sides had chances after that with Dion Frary twice going close for Dereham only to be denied by Coulton whilst Murat Karagul provided an opportunity for Kamanan before Prince Madu opened up a chance for Karagul. Both were headed wide.

But as time was running out it was Karagul again being the provider for Kamanan. This time there was no need for a header as the Frenchman stroked the ball home for the three points.

Ware: Tom Coulton; Gareth Madden, Alaa Oujdi, Ryan Hervel (Ahmed Mohammed 68mins), Marcus Milner, Lee White, Murat Karagul, Denzel Conteh, Yannick Kamanan, Finbarr Robins (Marvin Hamilton 61mins), Elliott Charles (Prince Madu 68mins). Unused subs: Joshua Dobson, Rheo Josephs
