Battling Point Against Robins

Nabil Shariff scored his first goal since returning to the Daniels as they drew against a youthful and inform Ilkeston at the Zeeco stadium.

Manager Andrew Wilson made three changes from the side that lost narrowly to Workington. In came Roger Lee for his first start for the club, Tom Mcgowan playing for the first time on since returning to the Daniels and Jordan Neil. They replaced Dan Clements, Nathan Hicks and the injured Jon Challinor.

Stamford had an early chance when a corner was swung in and the visiting keeper dropped the ball but Jordan Neil was not able to take advantage.

On sixteen minutes, Stamford took the lead. A cross from the left Neil was met by Shawn Richards and his lay off to Shariff who shot bent round the keeper into the top right hand corner.

Two minutes later, Ilkeston almost got themselves level. Lee Ndlovu burst through the Daniels defence and Richard Knight was on hand to pull off a smart save. The visitors then had another effort a few minutes later but the shot was wide of the Daniels goal.

With about ten minutes to go before half time, Ilkeston thought they were level. A fine move saw the ball crossed from the left saw substitute Daniel Udoh tap in from close range but the linesman ruled the goal out for off-side. On thirty-nine minutes, Ilkeston did get the equaliser. This time Udoh rose to meet a cross from the right to head past Knight in the Daniels goal.

In the second half, Knight was forced to pull off a fine block from a long range effort and the former Grantham forward Ndlovu put the ball into the net but again the linesman ruled out the effort as in an offside position.

The Daniels then had a chance. Shariff brought the ball down his cross was nodded on by Shawn Richards to Dan Clements, who was on a second half substitute, but he could not keep his effort down and it went over the goal.

Defender Dominic McGarr then met a corner from the right but his effort was over the bar.

The visitors then finished strongly and the Daniels had captain for the evening Richard Knight to thank and he was forced into making a couple of superb saves to keep the score level.

In the dying minutes, Stamford had great chance to win, when a corner was swung in and a goalmouth scramble ensued but a Daniels player could not get a clear shot on target.
