EVOSTIK LEAGUE DI­VI­SION ONE EAST LOUGH­BOR­OUGH

DY­NAMO 1 CLEETHOR­PES TOWN 0 LOUGH­BOR­OUGH Dy­namo made three changes to the side that lost 2-1 to Belper last time out. Kyle Bryant, Danny Gor­don and Liam Read came in for Jared Holmes, Karl Demidh and Carl Sib­son.

The Lin­colnshire side had a cou­ple of chances to open the scor­ing. First Danny North’s ef­fort from out­side the box was com­fort­ably saved by Char­lie Tay­lor and then Josh Batty’s free kick from the edge of the box was palmed away from dan­ger by goal­keeper Tay­lor.

At the other end Dy­namo were also lim­ited to few op­por­tu­ni­ties in a the first half. The best of them came off to a Danny Gor­don ef­fort which was saved by Parkin. Ryan Rob­bins also tried his luck but his shot flashed across the face of goal and the sides were level at 0-0 at half time.

But five min­utes af­ter the break, Lough­bor­ough took the lead. Rob­bins’ saw Parkin off his line and clipped the ball over the Owls’ goal­keeper Dy­lan Parkin from the best part of 30 yards out for his eighth goal of the sea­son.

The game flowed from end to end as Cleethor­pes aimed to grab a equaliser and Lough­bor­ough tried to dou­ble their lead. But both de­fences were stand­ing firm and not let­ting their op­po­si­tion have much of a chance.

The task be­came harder for Cleethor­pes13 min­utes from time, when they were re­duced to 10 men when Mark Gray was given his march­ing or­ders af­ter a lunge on Dy­namo sub­sti­tute Corbi Brown.

With the game com­ing to its clos­ing stages Dy­namo had a chance to ex­tend their slen­der lead, when a Brown shot was saved by Parkin and Cleethor­pes threat­ened late on but Dy­namo held on at the ADT Sta­dium to claim all three points.

Next up Lough­bor­ough travel to York­shire to face Frick­ley Ath­letic on Satur­day (De­cem­ber 8).
