King Goal Not Enough

A brilliant piece of skill from John King was not enough to beat promotion chasing Witton Albion.

Manager Graham Drury made 3 changes from the high scoring draw at Carlton. Keeper Sam Donkin returned and Liam Marshall recovered from injury to take his place at left back. The other change saw Jack Oldham start in place of the unavailable Sam Hill. Jon Challinor partnering Delroy Gordon at the heart of the defence.

Stamford started brightly and Grant Ryan shot wide after beating a Witton defender to the ball. The home side's first chance came on nine minutes when a free-kick was delivered into the box and the ball was headed goal wards and Donkin tipped the ball away.

After about a quarter of an hour, the home side took the lead. Bradley Bauress broke the Daniels back line and slotted the ball past Donkin despite the Daniels keeper attempting to narrow the angle.

With 30 minutes on the clock the home side doubled its lead. A shot was blocked but the ball fell invitingly to Steven Tames blasted the ball into the roof of the net. A few minutes later, John King had a excellent chance but his shot was straight at Danny Roberts in the Witton goal and the shot stopped blocked the ball with his legs.

Five minutes into the second half, Witton added a third. Rob Hopley held of the Daniels defence and with Donkin wrong footed the Witton forward rolled the ball into the corner of the net.

Stamford had chances to find a way back into the game with Roberts flapping at a Daniels corner but no Stamford player was on hand to take advantage and then Jack Oldham had a shot which flew over the home sides crossbar.

With ten minutes remaining, Stamford got a goal back. John King weaved his way past several Witton defenders and slotted the ball past the home keeper.

Stamford pressed for a second but were caught on the break in injury time when Steven Tames raced clear with the Daniels having players committed upfield to seal the win for Witton.
