Dipo on the double as Dulwich Hamlet move closer to safety

DIPO AKINYEMI scored twice as Dulwich Hamlet hugely boosted their survival chances with a first away win since October in National League South. 

Striker Akinyemi scored from the penalty spot in the 36th minute against Chippenham Town and added a second nine minutes from time, before Nick McCootie’s 87th-minute goal for the hosts.

Gavin Rose’s side had Nyren Clunis sent off, but held on to move six points clear of the relegation zone with four games left in their first season in the sixth tier.

Clunis had earned his side the penalty when he was fouled by Tariq Ossai, and Akinyemi converted.

Dan Thompson should have added a second for the Hamlet, before Ossai’s effort hit the post.

Rose brought on Dominic Vose and Anthony Cook and that gave his side more attacking impetus. In the 81st minute Cook cut in from the right wing before firing in a shot that goalkeeper Brad House saved, and Akinyemi was there to fire in his second.

Clunis was dismissed for an apparent headbutt with six minutes left, and McCootie pulled a goal back, but Hamlet came through five minutes of added-time for a deserved, and much-needed, away win.
