Rainworth Pay the Penalty

In a game were Rainworth never reached the heights, they took the lead but were left frustrated when they fell foul to a disputed penalty.

With players unavailable through injury the Rainworth squad was down to the bare bones in their penultimate home fixture against Parkgate.

Neither side were able to string together a meaningful passage of play and the game had an end of season feel to it.

The opening thirty minutes passed without a noticeable effort on goal from either side, until when in the 34th minute Matt Sykes set up Ross Goodwin and Levi Owen did well to tip it round the post. From the resultant corner Luke Walker’s snap shot went well over.

Parkgate’s first effort on goal came on 39 minutes when Andy Francis did well to push Andrew Fox’s free-kick round the post.

Rainworth came close to opening the scoring in the 41st minute when a great run and cross by Walker saw Matt Sykes’s header flash just past the post with Owen beaten.

The final five minutes of the half saw more chances than the previous forty as on 44 minutes Daniel Flynn’s run and cross was put high and wide by Zak Khalifa in a rare Parkgate attack.

The final minutes saw Walker put two headers just wide of the upright, as the game remained scoreless at the half-time whistle.

The opening minutes of the second half continued just as the first had started with neither side able to create a worthwhile opportunity and Rainworth brought on Gareth Curtis for Nathan Modest.

On 58 minutes Rainworth opened the scoring when Owen missed Max Pemberton’s long throw and Steve Wankiewicz was on hand to hit it over the line at the second attempt.

Four minutes later Owen’s outstretched foot prevented Walker from doubling the score.

The game changed in the 71st minute when Rainworth appeared to have cleared the ball only for the referee to point to the spot for a foul, the decision seemed harsh, but Fox made no mistake from the spot to equalise.

Rainworth brought on Charlie Dawes for Sykes in the 75th minute and two minutes his excellent cross was hit over the bar by Curtis when well placed. In the 81st minute Rainworth made their final substitution bringing on Jack Bennett for Walker.

The game nearly swung Rainworth’s way in the 86th minute when Curtis set up Pemberton but although his shot beat Owen it went agonisingly inches the wrong side of the far post.

In the final minute there was mayhem as the referee gave Parkgate an indirect free-kick in the penalty area when he deemed Rob Ludlam’s tackle to be a back pass. Luckily for Rainworth the free-kick from Fox went wide of the target and seconds later the referee blew for full-time.
