TENBURY United boss Colin Powell hailed his players’ second-half display after they fought back to win 3-2 against Team Dudley in West Midlands League Division Two.
Two goals from Mike Foster and a superb free-kick from George Pearson led Powell’s men to victory after they trailed 2-1 at the interval.
It was United’s first home victory of the campaign and Powell was delighted with the performances of Robbie Farrar and makeshift defender Keiran Fish.
“We should have been 3-0 up at the interval but trailed 2-1,” said boss Powell, who limped off five minutes before the break.
“Robbie Farrar marked the Dudley striker out of the match in the second-half and it was a great team performance.
“Keiran had never played in defence before and he did very well,” added Powell, whose side travel to Sikh Hunters on Saturday.
