Dynamo Remain in Deep Relegation Trouble

Loughborough Dynamo slipped further into the relegation mire after a 3-2 home defeat at the hands of Stocksbridge Park Steels.

Despite playing more than half the game with ten men, Dynamo could feel disappointed with not taking something out of the game.
Dynamo came close to falling behind after five minutes when a misunderstanding between Jack Tolley and his defenders left the Dynamo goalkeeper stranded out of his goal. Steels Joe Lumsden hit his volley on target, but Tolley was able to get back and make the save.

From a fifteenth minute free kick just outside the Steels penalty area, Lavell White hit a shot which was saved by visiting goalkeeper Dave Reay, followed closely by a centre in from the Dynamo left which White connected with and bringing another save from Reay.

Three minutes later Steels took the lead. Centre back George Grayson, up for a Steels free kick, got on the end of a centre from the Steels right and headed home.

White looked threatening and his run at the Steels defence ended with his left foot shot going narrowly wide. Steels went straight down the other end of the pitch, and a fine tackle by Louis Keenan prevented Steels number 7 Nathaniel Crofts going clear.

In the thirty-second minute Dynamo forward Karl Demidh and Steels right back Ben Rhodes were involved in an off the ball incident which resulted in both players receiving yellow cards.

The end to end play continued with Crofts getting away from Keenan at speed and firing a shot over the bar, followed by White beating a defender and drawing a save from Reay.

The thirty-seventh minute saw a change in the game with Demidh receiving a second yellow card for another off the ball incident, referee Richard Cattell sending the Dynamo forward off.

In the forty-fourth minute Dynamo centre back Carl Sibson, up for a corner, saw his header saved by Reay.

Just when it looked as if Dynamo could reach half time with just the one goal deficit Steels doubled their lead. In the first minute of added time Lumsden broke clear and sidefooted the ball home.

Dynamo came out after the interval and pulled a goal back in the fiftieth minute. Good play by Danny Durkin on the Dynamo left saw Durkin pull the ball back to Keenan on the edge of the six yard box, the Dynamo number 3 turning the ball home.

Dynamo were having more of the play at this stage of the game, even though down to ten men. Steels came back however, and Scott Ruthven was on the end of a centre but headed over the Dynamo bar when well placed. In the sixty-fourth minute Ruthven drew a fine save from Tolley, turning the Steels number 9’s powerful shot onto the bar, the ball bouncing away to safety. A minute later Tom Rigby fed a pass to Durkin, who drew a good save from Reay.

In the seventieth minute Keenan sustained a head injury which caused him to be substituted after a lengthy stoppage.

Three minutes later Steels extended their lead when Brodie Lichfield picked up a loose pass in the Dynamo defence and hit a rising shot past Tolley.

Play remained end to end, but as the match entered more than nine minutes of added time primarily due to the extensive injury stoppage both teams went in search of goals. First Ruthven put a low shot wide, then he broke clear of the Dynamo back line only for Tolley to push him wide, the ball eventually running away to safety.

In the seventh minute of added time Reay made a save to a low shot but was unable to hold the ball which ran out to Dynamo substitute Sam Thorpe, on for Keenan, who prodded the rebound past Reay.

More than two further minutes of added time was played, but Dynamo could not find the equaliser, Steels taking all three points courtesy of a 3-2 win.
