The Gingerbreads Win at Rushall

Adam Stevens named the same side that beat Marine on the opening day of the season.

Below are tweets from the Rushall twitter page;

2' Close shave for the Pics as Grantham see an early shot go narrowly over the bar.
8' R'Mar Murray saving Rushall this time with a last ditch block from a Grantham all across the box.
9' And from the resulting corner Matt Baker can't make the most of an open goal after Dan Crane makes a good save from a powerful header.
21' Grantham with another effort just off target. Lee Shaw this time with a rasping drive just wide of the goal.
31' Excellent save by Crane as he keeps out an effort from Grantham's Curtis Burrows after a powerful run into the box.
33' Long range effort from the away side's Andrew Wright but he's unable to keep it down.
37' Another corner to Grantham as Shaw forces a block from the Rushall defence.
38' Shaw is unable to turn away the corner he won as his stabbed shot is easily saved by Crane.
39' Yet another Grantham corner that comes to nothing. Murray for the Pics making the block this time.
43' Jordan Hempenstall with a neat turn on the edge of the area for Grantham but his shot is well over the bar.
44' Umpteenth corner for Grantham on the stroke of half time. Crane again on hand to turn a shot wide.
45' And straight after that the Pics' Ciaran Best clears one off the line.
45+1' Goal to Grantham. Lee Shaw slots home from a tight angle to make it 1-0.

47' Danny Meadows blazes over for Grantham when he could have probably played a teammate in for an easy finish.
55' Everington goes very close with a fierce drive from 30 yards out. Just over the bar.
71' Goal for Grantham as Lee Shaw heads home from an Oliver Luto cross. 0-2.
89' Kegan Everington beats Crane with a shot inside the box but the post comes to the Pics' rescue. The Grantham man stays down injured.

The Gingerbreads return to the top of the table. Next we visit Ashton United on Saturday
