Thetford 3-3 Lowestoft Railway

Spirited Railway fight back for draw

Railway travelled to a wet and windy Thetford this week. With Railway yet again only able to field ten men, with the youth of John McNamera and William Graham stepping up from the second team, Railway looked to start the game in controlled fashion. With the centre core of Croft, Barnard, Ayers and J Harris spreading the play wide to Cottingham and S Harris Railway were able to put early pressure onto the opposition with early chances from McNamera and Hall being saved by the Thetford keeper. Railway continued to press and with a neat through ball from Simon Harris, Hall skilfully turn his defender and slotted the ball through the keepers legs to take a well deserved lead. Railway didn't let up there, and with more pressure came short corners. From a Short, Croft found Jason Harris who took the ball on the reverse stick to slam home a powerful shot past the opposition keeper. With Railway wanting to kill off the game in the first half, Thetford did start to counter attack with balls over the top for there strikers to pounce on. With this Thetford gained a short corner of their own and converted with one of their few chances of the first half.

With Railway frustrated with themselves for letting Thetford back into the game positioning and discipline started to become more inconsistent. With this Railway started to let Thetford play and attack the Railway goal. With shots starting to be fired, it was Robbie Guy who was on hand to keep the ball out of the net and Railway still in the game. With Railway starting to take more and more steps back, Thetford started to win more short corners, to which in quick succession they converted two to take the lead. Railway by this point didn't know what was going on with the game and started to settle down and get back into a rhythm. Attacks started to come from down the wings again, with Mortimer, Cottingham, Graham and S Harris starting to make an impact on the game again. It was from an attack down the right wing with Mortimer driving the ball into the D, Simon Harris picked up the deflected loose ball to have a scuffed shot slowly but surely end up in the bottom left corner of the Thetford goal. Railway carried on pushing to the end to try and win the game but could not get the final touches to take three points back to Lowestoft.
