Welling United 2-0 FC Halifax Town

Two goals from Sahr Kabba in as many minutes saw Welling ease to victory over Halifax Town at Park View Road.

Matt Glennon had pulled off a string of saves in the first half to frustrate United, but Kabba struck just before the break.

The striker stabbed home after Glennon parried a header into his path, and doubled the lead 90 seconds later.

Ricky Wellard crossed from the right wing, and Kabba drilled into the top corner from 12 yards to seal the win.
