Five games unbeaten, but nothing to cheer about.

Wet, wet, wet...

Wet, wet, wet...

Rushden’s unbeaten run was extended to five games yesterday afternoon, but the 1-1 draw with the struggling Conf South team (just three wins from their nineteen games) will be seen as another  opportunity wasted, to go alongside the recent draws with Barrow and Woking. Yesterday’s game was the only draw in the round.

Next up is Norwich – stranded at the bottom of the BSP. A definite win, surely? Bear in mind the Vics are some 17 league places above County.

The FAT draw will take place on Monday. Seventeen of yesterday’s ties were postponed, so Rushden (providing they beat NC) could face any one of around 50 teams, including Kettering who, despite going a goal down against Cambridge City yesterday, won their match 4-1.

Having said all this NC apparently played their best performence of the season, and had a number of new (BSP) players on the squad who were out the impress. The crowd got behind them and, in poor conditions, a draw perhaps should not be sniffed at.

More bad weather en route to NC.

Kick off, in front of the main stand.

    Before you start critising Radio Northampton for not spending much time publicising the Diamonds, you should take a look closer to home. You have a manager who headbutted a fellow professional and can hardly string two words together, you aquire the services of a player infamous for bad publicity, and subsequently sack him, and your club has a history of drug taking and drug dealing incidents. I’m afraid that those that are/where employed by the club have failed in their responsiilites,and the lack of coverage in the media is a direct result of this.
