In a keenly fought tight match a solitary second half goal from inform Jamie Cade secured all three points for the Hornets’ pushing them into mid table, thirteen points clear of the drop zone.
Horsham fielded two new signings in Ashley Robinson and Bruno Pacheco, after they had both signed for the club earlier in the day.
The first half was a very cagey affair, with chances and excitement at a premium. The only two opportunities of any note came firstly from Horsham’s lively front man Jamie Cade and then from the visitors Matt Daniel. However a lacklustre first half ended up without either side finding the net.
From the whistle in the second half Three Bridges pushed forward and could be considered slightly unlucky to have had a goal disallowed for a foul on Zawadski in the Horsham goal when Elliot Romain was adjudged to have impeded the keeper before scoring.
The Hornets’ also awoke from their first half inactivity and started to cause the visitors problems. The best move of the match involved a good piece of play between Hamilton and Pacheco before the latter found Cade who in turn set up Morley whose shot unfortunately lacked any power and was gathered by the Grant in the Bridges goal.
The Home supporters however didn’t have long to wait before the breakthrough came and it was the Hornets’ man in form, Cade, who found it with a flashing header from Billy-Joe King’s excellent free-kick for his sixteenth goal of the campaign.
The goal settled the nerves of the hosts who started producing some fine football. Good work from Morley led to chances for Kaffo and Cade before new man Pachero had the ball in the Bridges net only for his ‘goal’ to be ruled out by the referee Shaun Scott.
The match, in contrast to the first half, was now a lively affair that kept the buoyant Hornets fans fully entertained. Chances came at both ends as the teams went for it. Cade and Morley came close to adding a second goal while at the other end Tony Garrod should have scored, however the visitors number 10 blasted over from close range with the goal at his mercy.
The match continued in the same vein until the final whistle left the players and supporters to celebrate back-to-back victories and successive clean sheets.
