Tooting stretched their current unbeaten run to eleven games this afternoon although took a 90th minute goal to preserve that record against fellow play-off chasers Westfield who had to play almost fifty minutes a man short.

After dominating the opening forty five minutes, and repeatedly bombarding the visitors’ six yard box, the Terrors will be wondering how they failed to go into the break with at least a two goal cushion however despite their superiority, the only thing to trouble Westfield skipper Gary Ross between the sticks in the first half, were a couple of half chances from Dominic Morgan-Griffiths and Hady Ghandour. He will have been more concerned though with the dismissal of midfielder Kadeem Ajeon, who having already picked up a yellow card midway through the period, went in studs first on Saidou Khan and was shown a straight red after referee Jim Paterson took time out to consult with his assistant. There was a bit of a commotion between the two benches as former Terror, Ajeon, left the field, but soon afterwards everyone had the chance to gather themselves and calm down as the referee brought the first half to an end.

As the second half got underway Tooting failed to show the same fire and vigour they had demonstrated throughout the first, appearing unable to take advantage of the extra man. As the half progressed it was the short handed visitors who appeared to be the more dominant side, growing in confidence and starting to probe at the Tooting defence. Much to the dismay of the Tooting supporters, it was Westfield who went in front on 78 minutes. As a ball was played in from the Terrors’ right, Dominic Morgan-Griffiths appeared to be taken by surprise by the bounce of the ball as it rose sharply after bouncing, striking an outstretched arm. Aaron Watson stepped up to take the kick, and after Morgan Campbell had committed himself early, had the simple task of stroking the ball straight down the middle. Within a couple of minutes, having already brought the lively Sam Folarin on to replace Leon Lalor-Dell, Tooting made a double substitution, Junior Timite replacing Saidou Khan and new boy David Carty coming on for the hard working Hady Ghandour. This seemed to re-invigorate the home side for the final ten minutes as they once again began to attack the Westfield defence down both flanks. As the game moved into the 90th minute, from midway inside the Westfield half, out towards the right, Dominic Morgan-Griffiths played a long ball into the edge of the six yard box where it was met perfectly by the head of Danny Bassett (pictured), steering the ball past Ross in goal, and into the back of the net.
