Grosvenor Vale club created several chances, but failed to beat away custodian Ryan Young last night

Wealdstone suffered a frustrating 1-0 defeat at home to Havant & Waterlooville last night in the National League South.

Gordon Bartlett’s team were looking to build on a 2-2 draw away to Gloucester City on Saturday.

But a Theo Lewis header eight minutes before half time proved the difference at Grosvenor Vale.

The Stones had created plenty of chances in front of a bumper crowd of 922, as Aboaker Eisa hit the crossbar early on.

Dan Fitchett had an effort saved by Havant goalkeeper Ryan Young three minutes after the break.

Eddie Oshodi fired over soon after before Fitchett’s header was brilliant stopped by the away custodian.

Stones continued to push for an equaliser, but couldn’t manage it and fell to a first home defeat of the season.

Bartlett will look for his team to find their shooting boots this weekend when they host Chelmsford City, who lost out in the play-off final last season.
