Rushden vs. Droylsden

 

(Above: the youth team regroup after a convincing 6-1 victory)

Just days before travelling to play the league leaders in the SS final, Rushden host the division’s lowest placed club. Droylsden have never visited Nene Park before today.

0-0 after 20m.
0-0 after half an hour. In other games, Northwich re beating Oxford, Kidderminster winning away at Cambridge, Weymouth are winning the relegation scrap with Farsley, York are trailing at home to Ebbsfleet, and Histon and Woking are drawing 1-1.

Droylsden brought on Robbie Talbot after just 5 minute of the game for an unknown reason. The first half was largely uneventful, save for a couple of half-chances for either side. Conal Plat went close form a corner, and Dale Roberts did well to stop a good effort from the visitors.
The players emerge for the second half.

A view from the corner flag. With 25 minutes to go (ish) the score remains at 0-0.
Rushden were unable to break down the Droylsden defence, and the game finished 0-0. Rushden were the first team who failed to beat Droylsden (at home) since November.
The disaponting defeat came at a time when a large number of fans were being urged to make the trip to Aldershot on Thursday. When the attendance today was the smallest for a league game since the Southern League era, it would be naive to rpedict a large following.

    I told you months ago that Hill should have been sacked for butting that fellow at Salisbury. He’s taking your club down even further than I thought possible. Look at the crowd today, just over a thousand home fans for a Saturday fixture, and there’s not even a sale on at Peter Crisps. Lol

    Ted-what we don’t need is ” I told you so’s” It’s hard enough supporting a team that’s going nowhere, with a manger that’s going nowhere.
