The Lambs were forced to make several changes to their starting line up with Glynn Hobbs and Rickie Shepherd unavailable, Shane Krac suspended and Owen Jones through injury.

The Lambs got off to the perfect start opening the scoring in the second minute. A Dave Hallett corner kick was only partially cleared the ball fell to  captain Lewis Daw who thumped the ball home from eight yards.

Falmouth responded well and gradually go into the game, and mid way through the half Josh Oak in the Lambs goal was called on to make two very good saves to maintain the visitors lead. He then produced a great save to deny Richardson tipping his great effort over the bar.

Barnes in the home then kept two fine efforts from Josh Grant to keep his team in the game before the Lambs increased their lead in the 41st minute, when he got on the end of a free kick taken by Dave Hallett, and force the ball home.

The Lambs made a bright start to the second half, with Warren making a penetrating run from mid field, but his powerful shot was inches wide of the target. Jack Crago then shot over the bar when well placed.

Falmouth pushed forward looking to reduce the deficit, but the Lambs defence, with keeper Oak in fine form were looking a tough nut to crack. The hosts did eventually manage to get a break through when the ball fell to Annear on the edge of the penalty area, his fine effort flashed past Josh Oak and found the far corner of the net.

The home team continued to press for an equaliser, but the Lambs defence held firm to record a hard earned victory.

With a number of player not available this was always going to be a tricky fixture as it proved to be. The Lambs dug in and battled their way to a hard earned deserved victory.

The team will need to improve on this performance before this Saturday’s massive game against fellow title contenders St Austell. Their were a number of good performances but keeper Josh Oak was man of the match with his fine goal keeping performance.
