Good team work and a jink in to the area from Brandon Blackmore who was fouled just as he was about to unleash a shot at goal, Up stepped Aaron Philipson to take the resulting penalty he struck and placed it well but the keeper pulled off a fantastic save HT 1-0. The second half saw more pressure from Huncoat and more good defending especially Jack Hargreaves and Ryan Mitchell. On the one occasion we did not clear the ball and we were punished 2-0 still Rovers heads did not go down and the introduction of Jordan Edmondson lead to more Gt Harwood pressure and a scrambled goal from Ronan Nixon 2-1 only minutes to go more Gt Harwood pressure, a corner brilliantly flicked on by Ryan Mitchell was well smothered by the keeper before we could force it home. Everyone should be proud of their performance.Well done Lads.
