MAT BLYTHE'S Frampton gained the bragging rights over Gloucestershire rivals Stonehouse Town in this top of the table clash at Oldends Lane.

Frampton went ahead on 14 minutes when Josh Beadle picked up a loose ball into the box and smashed it home. Beadle had another great chance a few minutes later, but home keeper Will Pedrick pulled off a great save.

Stonehouse responded - Humphries had a good chance, but shot wide on 26 minutes. Then, just before the break, Frampton striker Ryan Vincent went close.

At the start of the second-half Luke Soule fizzed wide and Adam Philp should have scored.

With Frampton pushing hard for a second goal, Daniel Stephens made two great stops on the line for Stonehouse.

United increased their lead on 66 minutes when Ryan Vincent and Joe Wilton played a one -two with Wilton finishing it off.

Going into the 90th minute, Stonehouse pulled a goal back when Tom Palmer smashed a loose ball into the corner of the net. Just after that Philp was sent off for the home side and a minute later the home side were down to nine when Adam Ireland also saw red for a bad tackle.

Frampton boss Blythe said: "It was great to bounce back with a win after our defeat last week. We’d trained well in the week and I had a good feeling about the game. Being away from home in a local derby we knew it would be a tough game against a strong side. But the lads started the game very well and created numerous chances and we got an early lead. In the second-half we continued to create, but were guilty of not finishing the game off. Eventually we got our rewards with a second goal, but with Stonehouse scoring a late goal it was a nervy last few minutes."
