Squires Gate picked up more points on the road on Bank Holiday Monday with another second half fightback.

Goals from Dean Ing and Ryan Charnley saw Andy Clarkson’s men fight back from 2-0 down at half time.

Gate made just the own change from there first win of the season on Tuesday night with Josh Pollard coming in for Joey Mullen who missed the game through injury.

It took the homeside just six minutes to open the scoring against Gate who similarly started slowly against Padiham on Tuesday night. Midfielder Andy Hill firing in from outside the box to beat Ben Fletcher.

Just three minutes later and the homeside extended there lead with Gate nowhere to be seen. Former Gate striker Ric Seear finding the net heading past Fletcher in goal.

Gate had a golden chance to get a goal back on 15 minutes through Josh Westwood. The big centre half unmarked at the back post but he headed wide.

Zac Dale came close for the homeside twice in quick succession after 20 minutes. A long ball forward found his run but his low strike was saved by Fletcher. From the corner Dale struck again but this time his low toe poke was wide of the goal.

Gate came close again to grabbing a goal back before the half time whistle, this time through James Boyd. Josh Pollard played the attacker through who got to the ball first and chipped it over the onrushing keeper but his chip rolled the wrong side of the post.

Half time: Barnoldswick Town 2-0 Squires Gate

Dean Ing looked to capitalise on a goal keeping mistake as the second half began when a clearance fell to his feet. His long rang effort was just wide though.

The homeside themself came forward but it was a let off for Gate when right back Beirley fired over.

Clearly whatever Manager Andy Clarkson had said at half time was inspiring Gate who looked a different side in the second half.

Gate grabbed a goal back in the 75th minute when Dean Ing tapped in. Sub Riccardo Egidi picked the ball up after the home keeper lost the ball well outside the box. Egidi flicked the ball over the keeper before playing in Noble who squared to Ing for an easy tap in.

And well into added time Gate’s sprit got them what they deserved. Clarkson’s men kept knocking on the door with free kicks and corners as the homeside panicked and got deeper. Ryan Charnley stepped up 25 yards out with one thing on his mind. He struck the freekick straight into the top corner to send the Gate bench into pandamonium.

Gate take a break from league action next Sunday when they travel to Gateshead to face Whickham in the FA Vase.

Gate: Fletcher, Dodd, Rossall, Westwood, Higham, Turner, Charnley, Ing, Pollard, Boyd, Noble. Subs: Pennington, Wyers-Roebuck, Burgess, Egidi.
