Modest Contribution Sees Rainworth Over Line

Rainworth go through October and November undefeated in the league.

Nathan Modest scored and assisted in another as Rainworth MWFC continued their incredible run of nine games undefeated, with a 2-0 victory over visitors Hall Road Rangers last night. However, this was no ‘one man’ show, this had been a complete team performance.

In a game of nine yellow cards, competitive but never malicious, Rainworth were tested to the limit by a very good and workmanlike Hall Road Rangers.

Rainworth’s excellent run was severely tested when the squad once again suffered a significant injury, the second in consecutive matches.

Last night they had to play the final ten minutes with only ten men as Luke Walker was unable to continue having sustained a leg injury with all three substitutions being made.

Rainworth made two changes from Saturdays line-up Brad Wilson and Charlie Dawes replacing the injured Liam Royles and Joshua Ross, with Jack Waddle returning from holiday on the bench.

It was Rainworth who had the first attempt on goal in the 3rd minute when Modest laid the ball into the path of Ross Goodwin but his curling effort went the wrong side of the upright.

Minutes later and Charlie Dawes ran past a couple of defenders and just as he was about to shoot appeared to be nudged and James Hitchcock was able to gather the ball.

The opening goal came in the 15th minute when Matt Sykes ‘s inch perfect through ball saw Modest outpace two defenders and stab it past the onrushing Hitchcock.

The game was end-to-end and minutes later Fraser Hansen’s effort flashed inches wide of the upright, whilst at the other end Sykes sliced his effort wide when well placed.

In the 19th minute Ben Townsend did well to keep Sam O’Malley’s header out as Hall Road pushed for the equaliser.

In the final minutes of the half both keepers pulled off excellent saves, Townsend at full stretch from Gareth Owen and Hitchcock from Sykes’s deflected effort.

The second half saw Hall Road continue to probe but it was Rainworth who created the first chance of note, however Goodwin’s effort was straight at Hitchcock.

Rainworth doubled their lead in the 61st minute when Modest’s overhead kick fell into the path of Tomas Poole who outpaced the defence, placing the ball into the bottom corner. Minutes later Hall Road were lucky not to concede a penalty when a tug on Modest, as he broke in the box went unnoticed by the referee.

Rainworth made their first substitution in the 70th minute brining on Walker for Dawes.

Rainworth had Townsend to thank in the 75th minute when he made an excellent save from Owen’s free-kick, diving to tip it around the post.

Rainworth made their final substitutions bringing on Waddle and Alex Nightingale for Danny Booth and Modest.

Tragedy struck for Rainworth in the 84th minute when Walker fell awkwardly and had to be helped off the field, in what appeared to be a serious leg injury. Having made all three substitutions Rainworth had to play out the rest of the game with only ten men.

Hall Road took full advantage pushing men forward at every opportunity, but Townsend and his defence were equal to all that was asked of them.

In the final minute of injury time Townsend once again pulled off an excellent save from O’Malley as the referee blew for time.

The credit for last night’s victory must go down to the management team and the players will to win attitude against an extremely good Hall Road Rangers side, who fought until the final whistle.
