The day was sunny with no wind with a soft good pitch after the previous day's rain and for this important game Arlesey picked the same team as last week to give them a chance to redeem themselves with the addition of the experienced Nathan Abbey as 2nd keeper on the bench. With a noisy and colourful contingent of supporters in fancy dress from Redditch cheering their team on from the start the game got underway with the vastly experienced Lee Hendrie attacking down the right and putting in a good had low cross that was well cut out by Derek Brown.

Arlesey responded with a strong run forward with Jordan Patrick but as he approached the Redditch area he was crowded out and dispossessed. A Free kick in for Redditch bounced awkwardly in the area and Cam Mawer put the ball out for a corner. From this delivery the ball came out to Lee Hendrie and he put in a good shot that skimmed just over Arlesey's bar. Redditch were clearly in the right frame of mind for this game and pushed forward well playing the ball around well through the midfield area.

Patrick managed to break out with a good run down the right but he was again stopped with a good tackle from Jamie Grimes. Slowly Arlesey started to get their game together and as Chris Marsh was fouled in the centre the ref played on to allow Christian Tavernier to put a good ball through to feed Joel Mason into the box but he too was stopped by a good tackle allowing the ball to be cleared. Chris Dillon fed a good ball onto Mason again feeding him into the box but again he was well tackled to win a corner. From this Dillon headed down well to Tavernier and he hit a shot from the edge of the area that went over the Redditch bar.

Redditch pushed back with a free kick in that drew another foul on the edge of Arlesey's area from Aston Goss. This ball in was well headed clear by Ryan Frater, but the away side kept up the pressure with a long ball forward that Goss had to put out for a corner under pressure but Derek Brown rose the highest to head this clear. Redditch continued with a cross in from Lee Hendrie that Frater again headed clear before Stuart Hendrie fed Lee Osborne into the box, he turned well but again Frater was on hand to block and clear his shot.

Mason fed Patrick into the Redditch box but he in turn was blocked out for a corner, from this Marsh headed on but nobody was near enough and the ball was cleared for a throw. Redditch countered with Osborne feeding in Stuart Hendrie who fired in a low shot that was well saved by Nick Bussey before Cam Mawer was fouled giving Arlesey another free kick. From this Dillon got in a good header but he was wide of the target.

As the half wound down Joseph Halsall fouled Patrick in the middle and gained the games first yellow card. From the free kick in Dean Coleman got in a good strong punch to clear. With time almost up James Deabill and Goss were competing for the ball and it looked as if the Redditch striker had put the ball out for a goal kick but instead the ref awarded a corner. As the ball came in Brown got in a strong clearing header as the half time whistle blew. The second period started with Redditch making a double substitution with Sam Adkins replacing skipper Thomas Warmer and Joseph Hull replacing Jamie Grimes.

Redditch started with Lee Hendrie attacking down the left and putting in a low cross that Frater cleared before Lee Allinson put a good ball forward to Mason who did well heading down to Dillon but he could not control his shot volleying high over the bar. Arlesey thought they had made the break through as Patrick found Dillon on the edge of the box with a good ball and he chipped accurately over the crowd beating Coleman but such is Arlesey's luck at the moment it hit the post and bounced clear, and then quickly cleared out to Lee Hendrie who broke out and found his brother Stuart in space with a good cross, and he hit a great volley from the edge of the area past the diving Bussey to give Redditch the vital break through.

Arlesey gained a free kick as Marsh was fouled again but Allinson's free kick was effectively blocked as he hit the wall but they persevered and Marsh put in a deep cross that evaded Coleman and came back off the bar but again this move was stifled as the ref blew up for a dubious foul on Coleman.

As Heavy rain started to fall accompanied by thunder, Mawer put in a cross but it was well taken by Coleman under pressure from Dillon. The game was end to end now as a ball from the right found Lee Hendrie but his long range shot went over the bar, and Allinson fed Tavernier in but he was blocked and was Patrick as the defence closed them down.

The Hendrie brothers were combining well again and Stuart fed in Lee but his shot from the edge of the area was wide. As the game swung back down the other end Mason combined well with Marsh as they tried to feed Mason in but again they were blocked as the move broke down the ball was quickly fed out to Osborne but again his shot was wide.

Goss overlapping on the left put in a good looking cross that Coleman punched out, this was again cleared up the other end with a somewhat hopeful ball but it fell to Lee Hendrie who had nipped between the 2 central defenders, he pushed it onto the advancing Bussey at the edge of his area and the ball dropped almost on his foot to enable him to go past Bussey and be faced with an empty net so that he had an easy task to double Redditch's lead.

Arlesey who were at that point about to make a substitution made it anyway and Zema Abbey came on to replace Chris Dillon. Mawer was fouled on the right and from the free kick Allinson found Abbey but he could only direct his header wide of the target. Joel Mason found himself in the refs notebook after a foul over by the dugouts, and from the free kick in Brown again headed clear but it was fed back to Stuart Hendrie but his shot was wide.

As Redditch grew in confidence Stuart Hendrie fed the ball through to Deabill but his shot went over the bar, and a long ball up found Deabill and he headed down to Lee Hendrie who quickly shot just past the post. A ball out to his brother Stuart saw him cut in and fire in a low shot that was well taken by Bussey. A free kick in by Allinson for Arlesey again found Abbey who headed well back across the goal and as all the players crowded in trying to get the ball it came off of Joseph Hull who cannoned the ball past his own keeper but it went up and hit the underside of the cross bar and went clear. Arlesey replaced Chris Marsh who was having a quiet game with Stefan Bailey and soon after they replaced Jordan Patrick with Leon Constantine. A ball forward to Mason was cleared by Coleman only as far as Abbey and with the keeper on the edge of his area he fired in a quick long shot but it would not come down quickly enough and went over the bar.

Another good ball out found Stuart Hendrie again and he crossed into Deabill who headed goalward but it was well dealt with by Bussey. A ball in fed in Mason again into the box but again he was blocked by Tesfa Robinson for a corner. From this Brown headed down forcing Coleman to punch it off of his line, again Redditch quickly countered with Deabill being fed in; he shot and Bussey did well to save but he could not hold it and the ball came to Stuart Hendrie who shot back over the prostrate Bussey into the net but his celebrations were cut short as the linesman's flag went up for off side. For reasons known only to himself Cam Mawer started arguing with the ref and as so many times this season only talked himself into the ref's book.

Arlesey were still trying to push forward as Mason made a good turn in the box but was then blocked so the ball went behind everybody and was cleared, and Frater put a good ball in that Bailey headed on but nobody read the situation and the ball bounced harmlessly wide. As the clock ticked down Goss cut into the box but was well blocked by Aaron Stringfellow for a corner. From this Abbey got in a good header but it went over the bar.

With 89 mins on the clock another somewhat hopeful ball forward bounced past Arlesey's central defence who were pushing up and went straight to Lee Hendrie who was waiting for anything loose and it went straight to him putting him through so that he could shoot unchallenged past Bussey to make it 3-0 to the visitors.

The game was now well past Arlesey but in the last minute a long ball up was well fed on by Constantine to Mason who fired in a good shot that was well saved by Coleman, the loose ball was quickly put behind for a corner which was then well collected by Coleman as the final whistle blew.

This defeat the 4th on the bounce in April has undone all the good work done in March and leaves Arlesey precariously balanced on the edge of the drop zone with only 1 match left to go. They must go to Chippenham next week and look for a more positive result to secure Premier Division football next season, and not rely on other teams doing the job for them. They are better than this months results but on current form they are not playing well enough to survive and must improve drastically next week.
