Leicester Road 2-2 Paget Rangers

A game of two halves at Leicester Road Stadium as the hosts snatch a dramatic late point

Paget Rangers returned to Leicestershire hoping to improve on the defeat against Hinckley AFC. After an excellent first half display the Bears ultimately had to settle for a point in a classic ‘game of two halves’. Manager Jason Lanns made a number of changes including restoring Danny Carter to the first team.

The Bears made a dream start when, in the first minute, David Franklin robbed home defender Rudd and calmly slotted past Highland in the home goal. The Bears sensed uncertainty in the home defence and Franklin and Carter continued to cause problems with Highland called upon to make several saves. After Josh Benton had saved from Lyne Paget doubled their lead on 40 minutes. Home defender Earls fouled Franklin in the penalty area and Carter calmly sent Highland the wrong way from the spot to give the Bears a deserved two goal half time lead. However, Franklin had to be substituted just before the break after injuring his knee and this affected the Bears’ attacking threat.

The hosts came out fired up for the second half and attacked the Bears’ defence and, after Benton had saved Lyne’s fierce shot, Downes lobbed the Paget keeper to pull a goal back on 55 minutes. Paget were forced to defend their lead with Myles Phipps and Carter limited to occasional counterattacks. Lyne came close twice to scoring the equaliser whilst Gomes and Langham had chances and the hosts had a strong penalty appeal waved away by the referee. Just when the Bears appeared to have earned the win, Langham sidefooted Munton’s cross past Benton on 89 minutes to equalise for the hosts. Gomes had a late chance to win the game for Leicester Road but the Bears hung on for their first draw of the season. They will look to build on an encouraging away performance when they travel to Nuneaton Griff next Saturday.
