On an atrocious late November day full of mist, cloud and driving rain it was the hosts who took the game by the scruff of the neck and were two goals to the good within 16 minutes.

After 9 a long throw from Jahred Russell caused confusion in the visitors box. The ball wasn’t cleared and John King bundled the ball home amidst a sea of bodies. Worse was to follow in the 16th minute. A long low cross whizzed along the sodden turf from the right and Joe Meakin was on hand to poke the ball home.

Radford were beginning to turn on the style now and twice Frazer Campbell tried his luck from way out but Scott Miles, injured early on, bravely kept his side in the contest with 2 fine tip overs.

There was practically no attacking threat from the visitors with Whitehead, Hogg and Joe Hopper doing their best to stifle the eager Radford forwards.

The game was effectively over on the hour. Home skipper Carey Knight picked up the ball some 20 yards out and unleashed an unstoppable volley past Miles for a 3-0 lead.

Felix Hogg pulled a goal back three minutes later to give the Yellow and Blues some hope and it seemed to galvanise his team as they attacked with abandon, piling forward at every opportunity, Hopper and Liam Moran went mightily close as the shots rained in on the home goal.

The last twenty minutes certainly belonged to Gedling but Stearsby’s goal remained fortuitously intact. It was to no avail, however, and Radford held on for the win.

In fairness the whole squad did barely little wrong in terms of endeavour and passion but the game and end result hinged on the first 25 minutes when the home side seemed to want it more and exerted their authority early doors.

Next up is the League Cup (R2) away to Radcliffe Olympic.
