Rossington Main 0 Nostell Miners Welfare 1
Turbulent end spoils game
Jordan Linley returned to the starting line up at the expense of Declan Howe for the visit of Nostell Miners Welfare.
Lots of early pressure from Nostell Miners Welfare had the blues struggling to get out their own half in the first 10 minutes and pose a real threat towards the Nostell goal.
But a ball put into the box by Jason Stokes caused chaos for a few seconds after the Nostell keeper came to receive the ball but dropped it. Jordan Buckham pounced on the loose ball and squared it to Lee Holmes. But Lee Holmes shot was blocked and put out for a corner.
Confusion at the back of the blues back line resulted in a foul and a penalty to Nostell. The penalty was placed low to Callum Fieldings left and the keeper produced a beautiful save to keep the score level at 0-0.
The blues began to settle into the game and Jason Stokes had whipped a few balls into the box at the back post causing problems with Lee Holmes making himself a nuisance.
Close to half time and Alec Denton was clipped in the box and the officials waved it away like nothing happened. Nostell had another chance canon back off the crossbar before the ref blew for half time.
15 mins into the half and Lee Holmes brought the ball down and his shot rifled back off the angle of the goal and had the Nostell keeper beaten.
Declan Howe replaced Jordan Buckham and had a few runs at the Nostell defence. Howe found himself through on goal and was brought down from behind and the Nostell player sent off.
8 mins later Harry Bamforth had a coming together with an attacker and another penalty was given to Nostell. The penalty was hit high over the bar and the ball returned to Oxford Street with snow on it.
Callum Wiffen was adjudged to have fouled a Nostell player and was given a straight red card. Officials had lost control and both sets of players had a coming together with Jason Stokes receiving a yellow card for being choked by the opposition.
In the 6th minute of added time Callum Fielding was finally beaten and Nostell took a last gasp win. Celebrations were cut short as fans threw objects onto the pitch and a Nostell player receiving a straight red card for throwing an object back into the crowd. The mood was soured and things turned ugly for a few minutes. The game finished and we look to get back to winning ways away at Emley next Saturday.
