Histon pics. and updates…

170 Rushden fans travelled to Cambridgeshire today aiming to extend their winning run to six games. It was not to be, as a 93rd minute winner for the home side saw Rushden slip back into the bottom-half of the table.

Histon start the game…

Ranks poor header

Ranks heads straight to the keeper. FGR and Oxford are both leading after 15 minutes.

Osano injured

An unforunate incident sees Gooding injured. He leaves the field, to be replaced by Gulliver.

Challs hits bar!

Soon after, Rushden hit the bar courtesy of a Challinor strike on the half-hour mark.

Offside; dissallowed

Rushden scored just before the break, but the goal was dissalowed for offside…


Half-time saw the score remain at 0-0.


According to our photographer, “Roberts gets a song”.

2nd half vs. Histon

The second-half kicks off…

Kelly hits bar

After hitting the woodwork in the first half, and having a goal dissallowed, Rushden continued their unlucky streak by hitting the bar against, courtesy of a Marcus Kelly effort.

Rushden throw-in

Rushden attack.

Challi off

Despite scoring 7 goals in his last 5 games, Challinor finds himself subbed off with half an hour to go, to be replaced by Ademeno.

Histon take lead

However, with little under 25 minutes to go Histon took the lead; an Antonio Murray chip beating Roberts.

Equaliser vs. Histon!

However, with 15 minutes to go your narrators sceptism at Hill’s earlier substitution was pushed aside, as Charles Ademeno scored to equalise for the Diamonds. 1-1!

Rushden press

An Osano throw-in (apologies for the earlier announcement of his phantom injury!) launches another RDFC attack.

Three minutes extra-time…. 767 in attendance.


However, disaster struck in the 93rd minutes, as Rushden fell behind thanks to a Neil Andrews goal. The full-time whistle followed soon after, leaving Rushden in 13th place. Rushden’s run of 5 wins on the bounce is over. However, they have ther impressive home record to defend when York visit Nene Park on Saturday.

Reports and reaction to follow.


Some rubbish, and dustbins.

Were you at the game? Did we deserve to lose? Was taking off Challinor with 30 minutes to go a mistake? Leave a comment below…
