Slaters Narrowly Lose

Reverse fixture against Lanivet

Lanivet Inn were the visitors today, with the fixture due to be played away at Lanivet but was swapped to a home game for The Slaters due to the pitch at the Dragon Sports Center Bodmin being unplayable.
The game got off to a scintillating start for Delabole when they were awarded a free kick deep into Lanivets half, Mac Irwin swung in the cross from the right side and was headed solidly and with the usual style into the goal by Jordan Blanchard,a great goal, 1-0. Then in the 25th minute the Lanivet drew level, but it wasn't long before The Slaters were in the lead again when the same combination of a Mac Irwin assist and Jordan Blanchard goal made the scoreline 2-1 at halftime.
The second half got underway and a minute from the restart the visitors drew level again, 2-2. Delabole were creating chances but unable to convert them and with the weather drawing in and wind getting up the pitch started to make things harder. Lanivet took the lead for the first time in the 75th minute taking the score to 2-3 Lanivet. The Slaters were looking to score but credit to Lanivet they thwarted many chances. They weren't able to stop a magnificent goal from Glen Burrell in the 85th minute when from the edge of the 18 yard box on the right Glen swung that trusty left foot which saw the ball curl into the into the top left of the goal and in on the underside of the bar,3-3. The thronging supporters thought that was the deserved result of a draw but the visitors were having none of it and seconds later netted the winner through a soft goal over a bemused Andy Garbutt, 4-3 Full Time.
A draw would of been a fair result to both sides who played well and never stopped battling, this was only Lanivets sixth game of the season so not a lot is known about them but my reckoning they up there amongst the promotion spots or higher.
The Slaters have another home game next week against Tregony and will be looking to revitalise themselves and come back stronger to take the win to keep the promotion hopes alive.
