BRIMSCOMBE sub Ollie Pitt stepped off the bench to strike the only goal in a 1-0 win over Forest of Dean outfit Lydney Town at the Meadow on Saturday.

The win sees Brimscombe stretch their unbeaten start to 2020 in the league to six games, moving Sam Prior's side up to 17th in the Hellenic Premier table.

Boss Prior said: "A tough, scrappy game against a decent Lydney side. The boys needed to show a response to last week and we did so with a disciplined, hard working performance. One moment of quality separates the two sides and thankfully it came from us."

Brimscombe & Thrupp head to Malmesbury Victoria in the Bluefin Sports Floodlit Cup on Tuesday, 7.45pm.
