Wors­fold in­spires Holy Blues

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - By Rob Hughes

IN WHAT was far from a clas­sic, Gainsborough did just enough to ex­tend their long un­beaten run through an Ash­ley Wors­fold penalty 20 min­utes from time.

The best chance of the first half fell to Curzon, Hen­rich Ravas sav­ing the ini­tial ef­fort from Richie Baker, be­fore Nathan Stain­field put his body on the line to keep the scores level.

Six min­utes be­fore the half-time break, Bradley Wells went clos­est to con­vert­ing a su­perb Josh Lacey cen­tre, but con­trived to skew his ef­fort over from six yards.

Trinity boss Dave Freck­ling­ton rang the changes at half-time, mak­ing a double change.

With the switch in per­son­nel tak­ing time to set­tle, Curzon twice came close to break­ing the dead­lock, an­other Baker ef­fort strik­ing an upright, be­fore Joe Guest hit the bar from a cross-shot.

As the Holy Blues be­gan to get a foot hold in the game, Wors­fold was scythed down by Cameron Ma­son, be­fore he stepped up to send the goal­keeper the wrong way from the spot.

Craig King went close to dou­bling the home side’s tally deep into added time, when he raced on to a Nathan Jar­man through ball, but Ma­son came out on top in their per­sonal duel. STAR MAN: Nathan Stain­field (Trinity) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
