The Radio York commentator just mentioned Curtis Woodhouse in his local Harrogate Town FC round-up… I thought he’d fecked off to become a boxer?
“Rushden do not look like a team that were beaten easily last Saturday”, says Mr. Radio commentator.
Just a “handful” of RDFC supporters have made the 150 mile trip to York.
Rushden go close, but Farrell had handled before putting the ball in the net.
In other games, Kettering are 1-0 up against Oxford, while Crawley are leading FGR 1-0.
Tragedy strikes at Rockingham, as Kettering throw away their early lead. 1-1. 🙂
Disaster! Kettering are now down to ten men! 🙂
Curtis Woodhouse just scored for Harrogate.
Northampton are 2-0 down and on their way out of the CC.
93 Rushden fans are there. Great effort! A 300-mile round-trip on a Tuesday night.
The match finishes 0-0, with both teams probably feeling they could have gotten more from the game. Akurang’s chance at the death could have reqarded the 93 travelling fans in the best way possible while Rankine (!) should have won it for York had his goal not been (unfairly) ruled out.
Rushden SHOULD be happy with the result. Yes, we’re still goalless after this season’s 180 minutes of play, but with a point on the board, the draw will hopefully act as a springboard from which the Diamonds will leap to two consecutive games, over Eastbourne and H&Y (I can dream…)
It also appears to have been a definite improvement from the performence on Saturday, with Rushden dominating “for large periods”, and with a fair few chances to put it in the net. Still, I can’t help but feel that the moaners will have more than enough ammunition.
Roll on Saturday.
How did we play? Was a draw a fair result? Were the officials as bad as the oh-so-irritating Radio York commentator (can’t be)? Comment below.
