Esh Winning 0 RA 1 (barnett)

Pentony, Muir, Ripley (Smith), Howlett, Hewitt, Evison, Cheeseman, Elgie, Barnett (Harrison).Allison (McKie), Freary. Subs not used K Thompson, Colman.

We were dominated for most of the game, Esh had 4 or 5 one on one's/clear cut chances in the box, in the first half and Pento was unbeatable. We lacked energy and looked really slow and tired from our win against Jarrow. We mustered some strength to get forward and the ball reached Barney on the edge of the box who dummed two men and struck a shot which deflected and looped over the keeper just before half-time. Second half was no better other than RA getting more numbers behind the ball and defending a bit better. The ball just never fell for Esh but RA dealt with most crosses and attacks well. Evi, Frears and Steve looked threatening on the break at times but for most of the day we struggled to string any passes together of note. Top hats off to Pento and Jagga for outstanding individual performances. It's a good sign when you can play bad and still win, 7 clean sheets out of 13 can't be fluke, but I wouldn't wanna see us play like that every week.

Tough fortnight of fixtures, we could do with some injuries healing quickly, start again at Northallerton on Weds.

Lets drum up some support for our home game in the Vase on the 22nd!

Absolutely buzzing with that win. We have dominated games in the past and been beaten so its nice to get the rub of the green for a change. We were so fortunate not to have been out of sight first half but hey ho you take it dont you? Nice to get my first run out of the season, especially after seeing the physio Thursday who told me not to do anything! Loved the win and great to see every member of the squad back at the RA till at least 8. Great togetherness at the moment especially with the number of injuries we are carrying right down the spine of the team.

Yeah we were lucky to win that one, but its amazing the harder the lads work , the luckier we get !!!

Outstanding performance from Pento ! 9/10 (would of been 10/'10 but dropped one cross ;) )

All the best to Esh for rest of season, they were fine hosts.

The tough games keep on coming on wednesday ! But with this team and the belief we have, anythings possible
