Lowestoft Railway 5-1 Felixstowe 2

10 man Railway back to winning ways

Lowestoft Railway were looking to bounce back from their first defeat in eight games with a home fixture to Felixstowe. Railway came fast out of the blocks with progressive play from Jamie Ayers and Jason Harris giving Railway attacks down the wings and through the middle of the pitch to give Railway early chances. It was Jamie Ayers who started the move for the first goal, with a ball out wide to Hall, who outpaced the Felixstowe defence and put in a ball to Sam Daniels. Daniels then turned his defender and accurately put the ball into the bottom left corner. Railway were not finished there, they continued to drive forward from the back. With the defensive partnership of Croft and Barnard spreading the balls wide to Mortimer and Marshall to develop the play for the attackers to keep the chances coming. It was one run from Mortimer down the Felixstowe right that was to be his last, with the Felixstowe player taking Mortimer out and leaving him unable to continue. With only eleven men, Railway were forced to play the rest of the game with ten. With slight adjustments made to the formation, with Troy Allen taking a right defence and right midfield role, and Jamie Ayers sitting slightly deeper to help stop any Felixstowe threat Railway continued to dominate. Railway then had a string of short corners, with some good efforts from Ayers who added to the score line with a flick into the Felixstowe top left corner. With the attack starting to work the keeper out, it was another neat move from a short corner to which Ayers dummied a shot for Croft to find Neil Hudson in space to calmly slot the ball into the Felixstowe top left corner.

Railway continued the second half the same as they finished the first, and it was hard to see that Railway were actually one man down. With continued pressure, Railway were getting a lot of short corners. Railway added to the score sheet when a short corner routine found Hudson passing to Ayers. Ayers then wrong footed the defender by turning him and placing the ball into the bottom corner. It was Ayers again with Railways fifth goal, and Jamie Ayers third goal of the game. The short corner was stopped by Croft for Ayers to drag flick the ball towards goal, it was heading wide but a deflection from a Felixstowe defender sent the ball into the top corner.

It was a great display by Railway, with hard work and the never say die attitude to fight through even with ten men. Hat trick man Jamie Ayers received the man of the match award this week, showing good control to send Railway forward.
