From the start, Bracknell Manics FC went for the early goal pressing hard on the Dukes defence...

Bracknell Manics took the early lead, Elliott Fairs was the one to score the opener banging the ball into the net after pushing up on a free kick.

But minutes later, AFC Dukes equalised, after a counter attack and long ball of the top of the Manics fell to their quick forward who ran on to the ball and scored.

Then Glenn Evans scored putting the Manics ahead before the break.

Two substitutes were made at the break, as David Comper came off to be replaced by Gary Sarney and an inujured Tony Hemley came off to be replaced by Neil Tagg.

In the second half, Manics tried to beat AFC Dukes at their own game, and lost their form.. James Robinson was lobbed and then beaten at the near post to concede two goals in the second half.

More problems followed when Mak Robertson could continue no more and a substitution was made. Evans was pushed up front and Lee Wilcox came into play. In a desperate attempt for a point, David Fenton pushed upfield leaving it thin at the back, but still the Dukes defence held strong.

Then right near the end, the Manics were robbed a penalty for a handball in the area when the referee signalled to play on...

The final whiste blew, and it would be another unhappy week for the Manics after another dissapointing game.

Thanks to the fans who came to watch.

The Manics Man of the Match went to Elliott Fairs.
