Rossendale run riot in first half blitz
adding a touch of skill to proceedings.
The main thorn in the side of the away team though was Foster.
Moved further forward to the right of a front three in the second half, he taunted the Howe Bridge left back with a display of pace, power and skill.
He looked a cut above everybody else and lifted the crowd everytime he got on the ball.
The only thing missing from his game was a goal which he would have richly deserved.
In the end Rossendale took home the points and another clean sheet for their mean defence who now have four clean sheets from six games.
After the game we caught up with the managers Anthony Taylor and Steven Mainwaring.
Taylor said: “It was a great performance on a tough surface, sometimes on a mud bath the pitch can be a leveller and you get drawn into a battle where football goes out the window and the team who wants it most gets the result.
“Thankfully our boys wanted it more and managed to play some quality stuff at times.”
Mainwaring added: “I’m proud of the lads today, the biggest thing for me is the defence have got us another clean sheet which to have four from six games is no easy feat in amateur football.
“I feel we can always score so if we can be tight at the back like we have been then we will win more than we will lose.
“We’ve got a tough three games coming up starting with this Saturday away at Prestwich FC, which is a tough place to go and even more so as they play on a 4G pitch which I’m not a big fan of, let’s hope we can keep the run going.”
The reserves will be at home this Saturday and will coincide with a reunion event Rossendale FC are having to celebrate their 80th anniversary.
Kick off will be at 2pm and we would like to see as many old players and anyone with past association with the club up there as possible to cheer on the lads.
