Daniels Defeated in West Yorkshire
Stamford’s eight match unbeaten run came to an end in a windy South Elmsall. Writes Stephen Breden
Nine minutes in and the first chance of the game presented itself to the home side as Jacob Hazel shot well wide from range. They then took the lead on twelve minutes as Rob Morgan was deemed to have fouled a Frickley attacker in the box following a free-kick. Jacob Hazel slotted the penalty to Dan Haystead’s right sending him the wrong way.
Six minutes later Stamford had a great chance to level as a free-kick dropped to Bradley Fortnum-Tomlinson, but his shot was blocked. The home side then went up the other end and Gavin Allott was played in on goal, but he dragged his shot wide.
On the 25th minute Jordan Smith flicked on a Pearson Mwanyongo cross to Bradley Fortnum-Tomlinson whose acrobatic effort was easily saved. Ten minutes later a Nicky Darker header was easily saved.
With half time approaching former Daniel, Josh Nodder shot well wide, then Jordan Smith played Pearson Mwanyongo in on goal, but his early shot went well wide.
Within two minutes of the start of the second half, Pearson Mwanyongo played Bradley Fortnam-Tomlinson in on goal but his shot was well blocked. On 65 minutes, Jacob Hazel blazed a shot from range high and wide. This was followed by the first Stamford substitution with Sam Hollis replacing Bradley Fortnum-Tomlinson. Five minutes later Joe Burgess came on for Jordan Smith.
With about twenty minutes remaining, the Daniels enjoyed their best period of play during the game. First Jon Challinor tested home goal keeper Sebastian Malkowski with a shot that the keeper had to get down low to his right. The resultant corner was swung in for Henry Eze to head wide of the post.
Challinor then beat his man down the left-hand side before crossing to Henry Eze whose first touch was good, but he then poked his shot wide. With ten minutes remaining Mike Armstrong drove out of from defence before shooting and striking Jake Duffy who deflected the goal bound shot wide of the goal. A minute later Jon Challinor put a promising cross in but Frickley’s Malkowski beat Rob Morgan to the ball.
With five minutes remaining, the home side scored a second. Substitute Danny Frost was played in on goal and he slotted the ball into the back of the net.
He celebrated in front of the Stamford bench which resulted in the management team and substitutes become involved in a scuffle with Frost and other Frickley players.
