MISSED chances in the first half came back to haunt Budleigh Salterton as they went down 4-1 to visiting Tavistock.

The Robins could have been three-up at half time – perhaps their best chance a far-post header by Jack Greenslade after Callum Shipton got a cross in.

Instead the Robins trailed 1-0 at the break to goal by Carlton Farnham, who followed up after Chris Maskell’s initial shot had been blocked.

It could have been 2-0 had Alan Doble in the Budleigh goal not kept out a decent effort from Maskell.

Maskell got a goal on 55 minutes when a clearance bounced his way off a Budleigh defender and he tucked it away.

The Lambs went 3-0 up with a 25-yard strike from Kalvin Fyneboy.

Budleigh got a goal back on 76 minutes when a Jack Greenslade header was nodded on bhy Ross James and headed in by Danny Williams.

Tavistock had the last word when Fyneboy clattered home his second with two minutes to go.

Budleigh had to pick themselves up quickly as they were due to face Axminster last night (Wednesday) in the Axminster Hospital Cup.

This Saturday (3pm) the Robins are back at Greenway Lane where leaders Appledore are the visitors.
