Smith Scores In Lewes Comfortable Win

A professional performance saw Jonte Smith and his Lewes teammates return to winning ways with a comfortable 3-0 victory over VCD Athletic in front of an impressive crowd at the Pan.

Darren Freeman made one change to the side that lost 1-0 at home to Carshalton Athletic in their previous game, with Ronnie Conlon replacing Charlie Coppola in the starting line-up.

Lewes made the most of early let-offs by going ahead themselves with their first real chance of the game after 17 minutes, as Gus Sow finished from close range after Joe Mant in the VCD goal had only been able to parry a Jamie Brotherton effort.

This goal gave Lewes confidence, with Smith being denied by Mant after being played in by James Hammond, before Lloyd Cotton saw his far-post header from a Leon Redwood corner hit the bar minutes later as Lewes pushed for a second goal.

Lewes were able to double their lead just before the half-hour through Smith, who converted a Steve Brinkhurst cross from close range after the right-back had latched onto a superb cross-field ball from Ronnie Conlon.

The second half started in in the same way as the first, with neither side able to create any clear-cut opportunities, although Lewes were continuing to enjoy most of the possession.

The first chance of the half fell to Conlon with about 25 minutes remaining, as he ran onto a Smith flick-on but saw his effort from a tight angle saved by Mant at his near post.

The visitors had their first opportunity of the second half minutes later, with Winterton comfortably holding onto a long-range strike from El-Moyhalbel.

Lewes were continuing to look the more dangerous side going forward and saw Smith fire a Bosma cross from the right just over the bar, before Conlon hit the side-netting from a tight angle after Mant had forced him wide of goal soon after.

Lewes were able to score a third goal and secure all three points after 77 minutes, as substitute Billy Medlock latched onto a through-ball from Conlon and took his time before calmly finishing past Mant from close range.

Lewes continued to push for more goals in the closing stages, with Smith being challenged by Mant as he looked to take the ball round him, with the goalkeeper then saving well from Elliott on the rebound.
