United pick up fourth point in as many days
End to end game at Burnham ends all square
Woodley made two changes from the side that beat Binfield on Saturday as the games continue to come thick and fast. Josh Drew came into the side on the wing whilst James McKimm made his first appearance of the season in goal.
The home side just about shaded the opening ten minutes; a clipped ball found Keiron Noel inside the box however he couldn't properly control the ball allowing McKimm to gather. A deep free kick was then headed goalwards; lacking power McKimm made a routine save diving to his right.
Fifteen minutes in and United were growing into the game. A nice move saw Ian Davies find Danny Horscroft on the edge of the box. Turning onto his right foot the Woodley midfielder forced Sam Bunting in the Burnham goal to tip over before Drew shot well wide.
The game, played at a very fast tempo was end to end. McKimm beat out a well hit Aaron Morgan shot before pulling off the save of the match. Nice link up play between Morgan and George Dawson-Clark ended with the latter firing a low shot that McKimm did incredibly well to get down to and save.
On the half hour Woodley winger Nathanael Robinson hit the inside of the right post however the flag had gone up for offside.
Two minutes before the break United took the lead when Jake Nicholls got his first of the season tapping home after Bunting could only parry a Horscroft effort. Breaking up the play in the middle of the park Nicholls started the move exchanging passes with Drew before finding Horscroft in space on the left.
HT Burnham 0-1 Woodley United
Both sides traded shots as the second half got underway in horrible conditions as the rain and wind got stronger.
Drew had a fierce shot from twenty five yards saved by Bunting whilst McKimm was once again called into action keeping out a Dawson-Clark free kick.
Woodley had a let off moments later when the home side headed against the bar however the scores were level on fifty three minutes when Morgan netted from the left side of the box.
Burnham now had United on the backfoot. Dawson-Clark hit the right post from twenty yards as the pace of the game remained frantic.
It wasn't all one way traffic as it was then Woodley's turn to strike the woodwork. Cutting in from the left flank Robinson had his shot from eighteen yards saved; falling to Drew he hit the right post from a tight angle inside the box.
United had their best spell of the game half way through the half. Drew had a well hit strike beaten out at the near post before Horscroft saw his cross from the byline clip off a Burnham defender loop over Bunting and roll across the goal line.
After scoring a brace on his debut Davies had a golden chance to get his third in four days when Ashley Ledger found the Woodley forward twelve yards out. Striking the ball well it narrowly missed to the right.
With six minutes left United made a change. Marvin Hinds replaced Drew.
An entertaining game wound down with the home sides Mason Yorke heading wide a right wing corner whilst the nearest Woodley got to a late winner was when Jason Pinnock did well to win possession from Hinds inside the box after the substitute linked up with Davies.
