Loss Completes Disappointing January

5 years ago By Market Drayton Town

Market Drayton's 1-0 loss to Northwich Victoria in the Doodson Sport Cup completed a month that started so promisingly at Newcastle Town.

Following that 1-0 victory, Town's third on the run, they have embarked on a run of three defeats on the bounce including heavy defeats to Leek Town and Belper Town. Nine goals conceded and not one in reply means the management will be glad to see the back of January and hope February bring a fresh start and improved fortunes.

With Danny Roberts cup-tied Andy Pryce made a return to the team, and Drayton started with a performance that on other days might have gotten them something. Sadly having failed to capitalise on their first half dominance - Kyle Blake rattling the bar and Rob Stevenson and Matty Johnson both going close by the time

Pryce had chance to show why he has endured so long with a fine penalty save the team were 1-0 down to a 58th minute strike from Scott Harries. That goal proved to be the decider and sets Northwich up for a trip to Rushall Olympic in the fourth round.

Drayton have now only scored three times in seven games, proof of why Jimmy Mullen was so keen to bring in Nathan Hodge - a move that looks dead in the water now that Kidderminster Harriers have stepped in with a last minute offer that even Mullen admits the player should take.
