Brighouse Town 3-2 Ramsbottom United

By Emily Anderson

ANOTHER home win for Brighouse Town on Monday night-their third in seven days- and their last game on home turf in what has been a turbulent season.

With the pressure off after ensuring last week their place in the Evo-Stik NPL Division One North for another season of semi-professional football, Town seem to be playing and scoring for fun as they move up the table after landing another three points!

Town bossed the majority of the first half and could and should have been more than a goal to the good at half-time.

Town put the pressure on straight away and in the eighth minute the very talented Huddersfield Town teenager Isaac Marriott sent a superb ball towards the Rams ' goal but Tom Brooks beat his own keeper Sam Ashton and hacked the ball away inches from the line.

There was a period of end-to-end play and both sides could have scored but it was Town who got the first goal on 22 minutes as skipper and central defender Adam Field timed his run to meet a Dan Grimshaw corner and head the ball past a flailing Ashton.

Lee Gaskell for the Rams was wide with a free kick from 25 yards out in front of the Town goal before Danny Naidole sent a pile driver flying over the Rams' cross from 30 yards out. The visitors did put some pressure on the Town goal as the half headed into injury time and there was a loud claim for a penalty but referee Pete Simms waved their claims away.

The second half was only four minutes old when Marriott sent a corner in to meet the head of Aaron Martin to make it 2-0.

With the visiting bench really getting on to their players, about their performances, the Rams picked up and started to push Town back and the home faithful could sense a goal was on the cards and the Town defence failed on 56 minutes to cut out a ball that came across the face of goal for Jerome Wright to pick his spot to the far post of keeper George Clarke.

Two minutes later Town's Tom Haigh had a stro0ng shot well saved by Ashton and then two minutes later Town's Adam Jones went in the referee's book.

Double substitutions followed for Town in the 61 st minute with Alfred Hammond and Mohammed Ibrahim replacing Jones and Haigh respectively.

There was penalty awarded on 66 minutes for the Rams after Brooks brought down in the box by James Hurtley who was immediately booked by the referee.. Greg Daniels made not mistake from the spot and the scores were level, 2-2.

Wright was just wide for the Rams as they went for the winner and Town were not battling to hold on to at least a point..

There was a final substitution for Town in the 78 th minute as Iwan Heeley replaced teenager Finn Donovan who had been superb from the very first minute and shows a lot of promise to follow in his father Kevin's footsteps.

In football parlance there was plenty of supporters saying, there was another goal in this, and it fell to Town as in the second minute of four minutes of added time, Ibrahim, who had troubled the visitors with his pace, came across the face of goal some 25 yards out and he let fly with a superb shot that deceived Ashton and the ball just scraped under the crossbar. He teammates buried the diminutive Ghanaian with their celebrations.
