Eagles winless run continues…

A game that some were already labelling a relegation battle just half a dozen games into the new season, as two of the bottom three sides met each other here at Eagle Valley.

The Eagles with just one point and sitting three off the bottom faced a Borrowash Vics side who were still looking for their first point.

The Eagles were without top scorer Curtis Millward in a game they really needed to win.

A nervous start by both sides but It was the visitors who took the lead on sixteen minutes when a ball over the top split the home defence and Matt Taylor slotted passed a helpless James Elliott in the Arnold goal.
The home side pushed forward and got their reward on the half hour when a cross from the right was headed into his own net at the far post by Callum Gilmartin.
HT 1-1

Matt Taylor could have scored a second for the visitors on the hour when a cheeky lob from 20 yards out seemed to be heading for the net, full credit to Elliott who managed to scramble back and palm the ball out before it crossed the line.
The winner came just five minutes later and it was Taylor again on target. A scramble in the goalmouth saw Taylor’s effort seemingly cleared off the line with Lynton Francis netting from the clearance but the referee signalled that the ball had crossed the line and Taylor got the goal.
FT 1-2

The season gets no better for the Eagles who face a daunting task in the FA Vase next Saturday against Loughborough University at Eagle Valley…
