Trafford 3 GNE 2

In the midst of Storm Brian, The Hillmen left their own fans in a mental whirlwind having looked lost, looked on top, and then proceed to look lost again as they succumbed to the sure bloody-mindedness of their hosts.


With ten minutes gone it looked as though Glossop were in for a hiding on this blustery afternoon. In the 6th minute Matty Russell lost his footing at the worst possible moment which allowed Aaron Burns all the time he liked to look up and pick out James Dean in the middle of the goal, just 6 yards out. Dean made no mistake in the finish.
2 minutes later the game already looked gone as another cross from the Trafford right was again met by the head of Dean, and once more his accuracy was spot on. 2-0.
Further chances came. Burns shot across the face of goal and Scott Sephton met a corner with a header that Phillips saved. Dean also wasted a glorious chance for the hat-trick, scuffing his shot with the goal gaping.
Then, ten minutes before the break, GNE grabbed a lifeline. Courtney Meppen-Walter sent in a cross and Jude Oyibo, one of the smaller players on the pitch, was unmarked six yards out and barely had to jump to head the ball into the net.
Then two minutes into the second half, Glossop were level. A free kick from just inside the Trafford half was allowed to drop onto the 6 yard line and was met on the volley by Meppen-Walter, side-footing home. The comeback had been unlikely with GNE almost constantly under the cosh, but suddenly they were level, and the quest for 3 points was given another boost minutes later when Trafford were reduced to ten men.
Mark Monaghan dived into a tackle on Russell late and recklessly and once the subsequent handbags had subsided the referee showed him a red card. You had to fancy The Hillmen from here.
However the sending-off forced Trafford to refocus and they knuckled down and began to dominate the game again. Pressure was building on the GNE defence, and whilst they can complain about the award of the corner that led to the winner – it should have been a goal kick – they can’t really rail against the fact that Steve Mason’s glanced header from the flag kick giving the home side the winner they had earned.
