Battling performance makes it four

Battling performance sees Stamford get a well-earned 3 points to go four unbeaten in the league for the first time this campaign. Writes Stephen Breden

In the first half chances were infrequent but when they did come a lack of a final ball or killer instinct was missing. Jamie Mcghee, back in for his first start after a long term injury, was the first to take aim but his long range effort dipped just over the bar. Three minutes later one of the better chances of the half was squandered by Courtney Meade as he shot out for a throw-in from the edge of the box.

On the 15th minute Loughborough had one of their few chances of the half as their number nine Sam Thorpe was played inside Liam Marshall, but Marshall tracked back to block not once but twice.

Just a minute later Stamford went up the other end with Jamie Mcghee, he cut inside from the right wing and shot but it was an easy save for the keeper. On the 21st minute Stamford’s best chance fell to Grant Ryan as a clever free kick from Jake Duffy found him in plenty of space but he couldn’t generate enough power on his header and therefore it was an easy save. Ten minutes later Grant Ryan shot from the edge of the box but it was an easy save for the keeper.

Moments later he had another chance as Jamie Mcghee laid the ball off to him, this time the keeper was more troubled but still held.
In the second half both sides worked hard and defended well, Stamford had more chances and this time they were of a higher quality. On the 52nd minute Jamie Mcghee was replaced by Jack Oldham. On the 55th minute Danny Durkin ran wide with the ball and shot well wide. On the 63rd minute Loughborough had a free header but it went well over the bar.

A driving run from Jake Duffy on the 66th minute saw a free kick given on the edge of the box, Liam Marshall took it but it was an easy save. On the 70th minute a long kick from Sam Donkin was flicked on by Grant Ryan, Jake Duffy flicked it over his head and ran in on goal, rounded the keeper and then lobbed him, scoring one of the goals of the season.

Five minutes later the impressive Rogan Mcgeorge was replaced by Chris Hollist. On the 80th minute a Jake Duffy free-kick was saved well, by the keeper, low down to his right. The 85th minute caused a moment of contention with the home faithful, as following a corner Roger Lee shot from the edge of the box, on the way through it was deflected.

At first the goal stood as the linesman didn’t raise his flag, following a discussion with the referee he did however, and the referee later explained he saw a touch that the linesman didn’t and then confirmed the player was in an offside position.

In the last minutes Stamford had two strong chances as Grant Ryan had a header well saved and Courtney Meade shot a one-on-one straight at the keeper.
