Moles work hard but Ware's run continues.

This was Ware's fourth away win on the spin and Molesey's fifth league defeat in a row. Not only that but Moles have scored only once in those five games. This makes it seem inevitable that Molesey failed to add to their single victory over Ware in what is six meetings at Walton Road but in reality Blues struggled for form against a determined opposition.

The game started well for Ware and for the first five minutes the ball scarcely left the home half. Even when that changed Ware's defence looked more than capable of dealing with Molesey's probing before Albert Adu scored after eleven minutes.

It was a well worked goal too. After Dave Cowley won the ball on the left by the half way line he fed it through to Brandon Adams and from there it went to Jack Daveney. He waited long enough to draw in a defender before slipping the ball across to Adu on the edge of the penalty area. The number ten's shot gave Alex Kozakis in the home goal little chance.

The game seemed to be heading in only one direction but Molesey were having none of that and started to put together some neat approach work. Yet whilst they gave the Ware defence more to think of their problems became apparent. A ball across the Ware goal on fifteen minutes looked dangerous but Andrew Mensah couldn't get to it in time to convert and two minutes later another shot was high and wide.

Adams showed them how to do it half way through the half. Presented with a ball bouncing higher than his head it seemed he would have trouble avoiding the attention of defenders yet he was first to it. Lifting it over one defender he turned his man before doing the same with a second opponent. Each bounce of the ball took him closer to goal and at the right moment his volley was judged to perfection, finding the top right corner of Kozakis' goal.

Still Molesey wouldn't lie down and on 30 minutes Anthony Page came to Ware's rescue, saving a shot at the expense of a corner, one of several that the home side were forcing through the first half.

Molesey continued to miss their chances come the second half. Just two minutes in a ricochet saw the ball fall to Ronnie Sobowale close to the penalty spot. There was just Page to beat but he fired high over the bar. If that sharpened the focus on Molesey's problem they failed to take notice and chances continued to be missed not least ten minutes later when Ware scrambled the ball away for a corner.

At the other end of the pitch Ware were being continually caught offside though a run by Jordon Watson led to an opening for Adu whose shot brought a good save from Kozakis. The game was now opening up for Ware but by then Molesey were down to ten men after Joe Prately-Jones' two footed tackle on Cowley.

Adu was next one on one with Kozakis but failed to capitalise before Charlie Yexlie's centre gave him another chance. This time his header was safely gathered by the keeper.

In the end it was Watson, riding one tackle before being floored by a second in the penalty area, who gave Ware the chance for a third goal. He took it himself sending Kozakis the wrong way from the penalty spot as he shot for the bottom left corner of the goal.

Ware haven't won four successive away league games since 2008 in a six game run that included two away cup wins as well and are now up to seventh in the table.
