The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - TAMWORTH 1 GAINS­BOR­OUGH T 2 By Matt Pan­ter

TAMWORTH lost at home for the first time since the open­ing day of the season as strug­gling Gains­bor­ough Trin­ity came from be­hind to se­cure a pre­cious win.

The home side dom­i­nated the open­ing half and were full value for their lead com­ing courtesy of Reece Sty­che.

But the Lambs some­how con­trived to throw it away af­ter the break with Nathan Jar­man and Bradley Wells earn­ing Trin­ity their sec­ond league win on the road since mid-Jan­uary.

Tamworth had lots of early chances with Luke Jones’ header de­flected over and Sty­che de­nied by Hen­rich Ravas.

Cal­lum Pow­ell twice went close, while Sty­che hit the bar and Ravas de­nied Dar­ryl Knights.

The Lambs were ahead on 41 min­utes as Knights threaded the ball through for Sty­che, who beat the off­side trap and coolly slot­ted home.

Trin­ity were level two min­utes into the sec­ond half as Jar­man saw his ini­tial shot saved by Dan Jezeph, but made no mis­take on the re­bound.

Tamworth re­sponded as Knights’ 25-yarder fell nar­rowly wide, while Jar­man tested Jezeph.

Knights fired inches wide be­fore the vis­i­tors took the lead with seven min­utes to go as sub­sti­tute Wells headed home a Craig King cross.

Sty­che saw a late free­kick saved by Ravas as the hosts slumped to a third straight de­feat.

STAR MAN: Nathan Jar­man (Gains­bor­ough Trin­ity) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
