5-1 defeat for Dynamo


Loughborou­gh Dynamo fell to a disappoint­ing defeat at home to Ilkeston Town in a 5-1 defeat at the Newton Fallowell Stadium

The attendance of 429 was The Moes highest home attendance since their records began in August 2012.

On the pitch, however, things didn’t really go so well. Ilkeston Town took the lead after just five minutes when a missed defensive header from a long throw gave Zak Goodson a free header to make it 1-0 to the away side.

Dynamo did improve after they went behind and for 25 minutes or so after the goal, they were the better team. If the Moes could have found the back of the net with one of their chances, the game could have been very different.

Striker Courey Grantham had a great chance as he was played through 1-on-1 but the Ilkeston keeper got the better of him and made two good saves. Dan Collins and Tristan Matthews also had shots in the box but couldn’t find the net either.

However, Dynamo just couldn’t find an equaliser and when Ilkeston scored two quick goals just before half time it was all over. In the 40th minute Zac Goodson got his second goal of the game after some nice one touch passing in and around the box left him free in the box to beat goalkeeper Ruben Rabstein.

Then just three minutes later, Kieran Fenton scored an excellent free kick from just over 20 yards out that found the top corner of the net.

In the second half as Dynamo pushed for a goal to get back into the game, lots of space started to open up on the pitch and Ilkeston were twice able to hit Loughborou­gh Dynamo on the counteratt­ack.

On the 63rd minute, Alex Troke was able to make it 4-0 before Remaye Campbell made it 5-0 a bit later. By this time the game was long over but Dynamo goalkeeper Ruben Rabstein still had to made some good saves to keep the score down to five.

Loughborou­gh Dynamo did get a consolatio­n goal in stoppage time as winger Sacha Markelic, who had just come on as a sub, was able to get his first goal for the club as he tapped the ball into an open goal at the back post after a cross came in from the left.

The game marked the end of Loughborou­gh’s five fixtures in a row against the top five teams in the league, in which they claimed just one point and now new Head Coach Brad Munn has a chance to properly settle into his role and hopefully get the Moes back on a roll.
