Rainworth Relief

Rainworth breathed a sigh of relief at Clipstone today when they snatched the points in the dying seconds of a hard fought local derby.

There are no such things as an ‘easy fixture’ in the NCEL Premier Division and todays game between bottom of the table Clipstone (with only 1pt) and Rainworth MWFC, confirmed that fact.

Clipstone went behind as early as the fourth minute and thought they’d made Rainworth pay, for their missed chances, when they equalised in the final minute, only to suffer heartbreak as Rainworth produced a winner with only seconds remaining.

Rainworth kicked off with a slight breeze at their back and when Clipstone failed to properly clear the ball in the 4th minute, Matt Sykes was on hand to force the ball home off the upright for the opening goal.

Rainworth almost doubled their tally in the tenth minute when Tomas Poole’s firmly hit shot was only gathered at the second attempt by the Clipstone keeper.

Clipstone however were not overawed and minutes later only an excellent tackle by Richard Adams, followed by a block by Danny Booth prevented them equalising.

The game was end-to-end, and the keeper did well to deny Poole at full stretch whilst Ben Townsend made a similar save at the other.

Rainworth should probably have doubled their lead in the 32nd minute when an excellent ball from Booth set up Kyle Jordan but his shot beat the keeper and the outside of the upright.

Clipstone continued to probe but it was Rainworth who missed a guilt-edged opportunity on 43 minutes when after an excellent interchange between Jordan and Nathan Modest, Poole put his shot agonisingly wide of the upright with the goal at his mercy.

At the half-time whistle it was Rainworth would held a slender 1-0 lead.

Rainworth brought on Alex Nightingale for Poole at half-time, but it was Clipstone who started the half on the front foot.

Clipstone however were still lacking the killer instinct in front of goal, which their build-up play deserved.

Rainworth brought on Charlie Dawes for the injured Modest in the 65th minute and minutes later when Nightingale found Goodwin his effort was only inches wide with the keeper well beaten.

Still Clipstone pressed and Townsend did brilliantly to save at the feet of the onrushing centre-forward.

Rainworth made their final substitution on 74 minutes bringing on Luke Walker for Sykes.

Dawes was unlucky not to double Rainworth’s lead on 77 minutes when his goal-bound shot struck Walker. They went close again on 84 minutes when Walker’s effort was blocked on the line and the keeper did well to save Goodwin’s follow-up.

Minutes later Dawes was denied by the keeper and Goodwin’s effort on the turn, flashed inches wide.

Clipstone thought they’d gained a point when in the final minute substitute Thomas Sharpe’s looping header found the far corner for the equaliser. The celebrations were short-lived when from the kick-off Rob Ludlam crossed for Walker to head in Rainworth’s winner.

Seconds later the referee blew for full-time.
