HEREFORD Pegasus took their fourth win from five league games grinding out a 2-0 victory over Longlevens AFC, despite going down to 10 men.

Pegasus gave a debut to former Malvern Town goalkeeper James Loader who kept a clean sheet on his first outing.

The hosts made a flying start taking a fourth minute lead when Jordan Williamson surged past his marker before driving the ball from 25 yards out high into the net.

Ten minutes later, Williamson was again in the thick of action as he turned provider.

His shot forced goalkeeper Daniel Troke to save into the path of Cawley Cox netting his 10th goal of the season.

In the 24th minute, Cox seized upon a back-pass before playing the ball back to Luke Griffiths whose goal-bound shot was tipped over the bar by Troke.

With five minutes of the half remaining, Longlevens should have reduced the deficit. A cross from the right was headed against the crossbar by Cam Williams.

In the second half Mike Burgess was dismissed after receiving his second caution.

Down to ten men, Pegasus had to defend with their backs against the wall but kept a clean sheet despite the visitors rattling the crossbar.
