Four games to go and it was the visit of Rothwell Corinthians.

 

We have been disappointed with our form over the last couple of months and want to finish the season with a flurry.

 

Over the years we have done well against Rothwell at home, but they have been on a good run.

 

They got the best possible start when they were awarded a penalty inside the first 5 minutes which our keeper nearly stopped with his legs, but the ball found its way into the net.

 

We started to get a hold on the game and create chances, but Rothwell were a threat on the break.

 

The equaliser came with some good work down the right from Jack Daldy and he centred the ball for the oncoming Danny Mortimer (pictured) to calmly slot a half volley home, although it hit Giuseppe Freitas.

 

The Rothwell lads were certain the goal shouldn’t stand but from where I was it was clear our lad was already over the line. So, 1-1 at the break.

 

The second half was far from a being a spectacle, although there was a notable couple of saves from Bradley Lashley to keep the scores level.

 

The highlight of the half for us was a great delivery out on the right met by a powerful Shaun Wilkes header and the diving keeper plucked it out of the top corner.

 

Other than that, not much to report in this `UCL classic`.

 

Eynesbury on Saturday for us followed by the Wellingborough derby before the season ends at home to Desborough.

 

Congrats to the Dav lads, I know they haven’t quite popped the cork yet but deserving league champions.
