Brough Snatches Last Gasp Victory for Reserves against Retford

Butler's 30 yard lob ignites Linby fightback

With Manager Stewart Bowley away on business, Assistant Dave Newton took charge of the Reserves for this midweek fixture over in Retford. The Reserves were looking to cap off a good November with a victory to go alongside their recent win in the League Cup Quarter Finals.
Playing such a long distance away in a midweek fixture is always going to be a challenge but Linby were able to call on a squad of 14 players for the night and elected to leave the remaining two substitute positions empty rather than asking guys to travel for an hour only to sit on the bench.
In the first half a defensive lapse from Linby presented Retford with their first goal of the evening and despite playing some nice controlled football it was Retford who extended their lead with 5 mins to half-time when they were awarded a penalty.

Half time: Retford Development 2-0 Linby CWFC Reserves

Linby came out for the second half looking like a totally different team and dominated play from the off. After 70 mins Ryan Butler ignited the Linby fightback with a sumptuous lobbed goal from 30 yards and 10mins later the same player took advantage when the opposition keeper dropped a Mark Poyser corner to smash the ball home and level the scores.
Linby had the momentum now and won the game in the 92nd min when Nathan Brough produced a moment of supreme quality to lob the keeper from 35 yards and snatch the points.

Despite going 2-0 down Linby were always in the game and in the first half were let down by individual mistakes. In the second half they were really strong, looked a yard faster and played some great football. Many players made stand out performances including Ryan Butler and Kyle McDermott but the winner of the Man of the Match Award was Liam Porter for an outstanding performance in the middle of the park.
