Bottom Side Make It Difficult For Stamford

Stamford beat bottom of the table Gresley at Moat Street but the win was far from straightforward. Writes Stephen Breden

Three minutes in and Matt Melbourne was in on goal for the home side but Mike Armstrong got back to make a great block. Four minutes later Liam Adams volleyed wide from range. Ten minutes later Bradley Fortnam-Tomlinson cut inside and shot into the side netting.

On the 23rd minute and the visitors had the lead as Eliot Putman drove forwards before unleashing a stunning shot from range that Max Smith-Varnam, who was the Daniels keeper three weeks ago, had no chance of keeping out.

On the 28th minute Stamford doubled their lead as Bradley Fortnam-Tomlinson beat the keeper, crossed and Liam Adams couldn’t miss as he headed into the open net to score his fourth goal in seven games.

Two minutes later Henry Eze should have scored the Daniels’ third, as he met an excellent Liam Adams free-kick, but his header was tame and easily saved. The final chance of the half came to Gresley as a Lucas Harrison volley smashed off the bar to remind the Daniels that game was not yet won.

The Daniels had the first chance of the second half as a Rob Morgan cross came to Jordan Smith who flicked the ball to Bradley Fortnam-Tomlinson who volleyed wide. Ten minutes later he was replaced by Pearson Mwanyongo.

With twenty minutes to go Dan Haystead saved a deflected shot but Matt Melbourne tapped home the rebound. Five minutes later Pearson Mwanyongo crossed to Liam Adams whose flicked shot was expertly saved. With ten minutes to go Pearson Mwanyongo was in on goal but as he looked to cross to the two onrushing yellow shirts the Gresley defence got back and blocked the cross.

The final few minutes was a frantic finish with the home side looking for an equaliser with Stamford holding on.

A minute before full time Liam Adams was replaced by Sam Hollis.

The result, gave Stamford their second home win and stretched their unbeaten run to five games, with three wins and two draws.
