Ipswich Cranes 2 - Lowestoft Railway II 4

Winning Start To 2018 For Railway

Ipswich Cranes 2
Lowestoft Railway II 4

Railway returned to action following an extended mid season break with a trip to Ipswich Cranes.

The visitors started the game tentatively, showing signs of a team that had not played for several weeks and allowed Cranes to the lead from a penalty flick, awarded for a poor defensive challenge.
The goal was much needed wake up call for Railway and the visitors suddenly upped the tempo and started to build the play through the midfield and down the wings with short, sharp passing. As Railway built up the pressure it wasn't too long before the visitors were back on level terms, when Ollie Payne neatly deflected in a cross from Simon Cottingham just before the interval.

Railway continued to press forward in the second half and were rewarded when Matt Payne turned to drill the ball at the goal, deflecting up off the keeper into the roof of the net, to give the visitors a deserved lead.
Shortly after, Simon Cottingham extended the lead by firing the ball into the corner of the goal after creating the overlap from full back, breaking down the right wing. Ross Kozyrko added another, in his first start of the season, sweeping the ball in on the back post after John McNamara had drawn the keeper.

With the win secured, Railway looked comfortable and in total control, but allowed Cranes a late consolation goal, getting caught on the break with a moment’s lapse in concentration near the end of the game.

MoM was Phil Dougherty for a typically energetic performance in the centre of the Railway midfield.
