Alty match

Rushden aim to win two games in a row for the first time in two months. One should not underestimate Alty, however. This is not the Altrincham of last year, and the team sit just one point and one place below the Diamonds.

Fog. The match is deemed playable.

Alty have been reduced to 10 men, after a questionably poor tackle on Yannick Bolasie. “It certainly didn’t deserve more than yellow”, says Mr. Radio Man. A scrappy game looks set.

3:31pm A 25-yarder from Andy Burgess sees RDFC go in front! The players celebrate, below.

Rushden go 2-0 up after Tomlin’s deflected shot makes Diamonds fans a bit more comfortable.

Half-time gaging of respective teams’ confidence.

Rushden fan: “We are going up!” (possibly tongue in cheeck)

Alty fan: “Need a minor miracle to get anything out of this one now”

THAT close to an Alty penalty.

For reasons only known to GH, Bonasie is replaced by Marcus Kelly.

Rushden nearly give a penalty away, and then watch as an Alty shot hits off the post. Eeek.

“Mist starting to come down a bit, folk”, says Radio Northants commentator.

Brown misses an unmissable shot. Could’ve been game over.

Rushdens most dangerous opposition today - the weather.

Rushden go 3-0 up, thanks to Curtis Osano. They can’t abandon the game now, can they? Can they?!

It doesnt look good.

It doesn't look good. 20 minutes to survive.

 

Roberts will be well fogged off if the game is called off etc. etc.
