Late strike leaves Whitby scup­pered

Sunday Sun - - Football -

GRANTHAM TOWN WHITBY TOWN 3 2 WHITBY Town wasted the op­por­tu­nity to move to within a point of the Evo-Stik NPL Premier Di­vi­sion play-off places as they fell to a late de­feat at Grantham Town.

The Seasiders dom­i­nated the early pro­ceed­ings and took the lead on 18 min­utes thanks to a Dale Hop­son penalty.

Adam Gell dou­bled the lead mid­way through the first half and it could have been even worse for the hosts had Ju­nior Mon­dal not hit the post just be­fore the half-hour mark.

That was as good as it got for Chris Hardy’s side as Ryan Oliver headed Grantham back into the game on 33 min­utes.

The same player re­stored par­ity min­utes af­ter the restart as he met a Tom Sid­dons cross to smash the ball into the roof of the net.

And Sid­dons turned from provider to goalscorer in in­jury time as he headed home from close range to give the Ginger­breads all three points.
