Daren Dykes on the Rothwell Game

Newport Pagnell's Daren Dykes:
"After a disappointing draw with a much improved Sileby side last Saturday, this weekend we travelled to Rothwell & came home with all 3 points.
In "proper" non league conditions on a boggy, sloping pitch we knew our usual game of getting the ball down & playing wasn't going to be the order of the day. It was a battle with challenges flying in all over the pitch which I thought the referee & assistants handled very well.
Our first goal came from a superb finish from the edge of the box on the angle from Sam after good work down the right by Darryl who was excellent yesterday. The second came from a poor clearance from their keeper which Fazel pounced on & Finished neatly into the corner. The action wasn't finished there though. With 10 minutes or so to play we gave away a penalty. Thankfully ozzy made a great save to his right.
By no means was this the prettiest of games to watch but I love these wins. Our lads battled all game in tough conditions & got their reward.
Little shout out to my mate Gary Flinn & his Kempston side who just keep on winning! Great result yesterday against Leicester Nirvana to put them top.
Come on you Swans!"
