GOALKEEPER Ben Nower returned from injury to inspire Mildenhall to inflict Stanway's first home defeat since mid-November.

Last year's Ridgeons First Division champions humbled Mildenhall in a 3-0 home defeat on the opening day of the season, and on Saturday, they again proved a handful.

Most Read

The hosts created early pressure and Nower pulled off a stunning save to deny Ray Turner.

Midfielder Paul Miles struck the crossbar with a 25-yard drive, before his team-mate Matty Clements gave Mildenhall the lead on the half-hour mark. Coren Hardy latched on to a poor back-pass before taking the ball past the goalkeeper and cutting it back for Clements to tap into an empty net.

Stanway almost found a quick equaliser when, after Nower denied Marlon North, Emmerson's rebounded shot was cleared off the goalline by Niall Inman.

Dan Heron, on for the injured Clements, forced a fine save before Turner, who scored a hat-trick in Stanway's shock win over Mildenhall back in August, fired narrowly wide from an acute angle.
