The game changer came in the 59th minute when Callum Williams waz sent off for a professional foul which reduced us to 10 men once again this season (2 sendings off for the 1st team az well!)
The Arse finally took the lead in the 79th minute through Iwobi whose low shot beat Darlow in The Toon goal!
Mavididi <(where do they get theor names from?) doubled their lead bang on full time and a consolation goal for Gilliead reduced the arrears in the 4th minute of stoppage time---but it waz all tooo late by this time!
