Worsfold inspires Holy Blues
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: ★★★★★
