PITCHING IN NORTHERN PREMIER LEAGUE MIDLANDS

CORBY TOWN 0 LOUGHBOROU­GH DYNAMO 3 LOUGHBOROU­GH Dynamo got back to winning ways in a superb 3-0 win away at Corby Town in Brad Munn’s first win as Head Coach.

Right from the first whistle, the Moes were brilliant. They kept possession well and when their chances came, they were clinical.

The reaction of the Corby Town fans at the final whistle summed up the day for them as they roundly booed off their team and made clear how much they thought they were second best.

However, things didn’t start well for the Moes. Defender Jack Andrews was making his first appearance in over a month after coming back from injury and he only lasted five minutes before leaving on crutches.

But Dynamo didn’t let that faze them and they tried to take control of the game and dominate early on. Goalkeeper Ruben Rabstein did have to make a couple of saves early on including diving low to his left to keep out a free kick that had bent round the wall.

The first 20 minutes were very stop-start with a lot of fouls and free kicks breaking up the play. However, after that it was all one-way traffic.

After just 23 minutes, striker Courey Grantham was played through by Dan Collins, and he raced into the box before cutting back onto his right foot and unleashing a powerful shot that found the top right-hand corner to make it 1-0 to the Moes.

A lapse in concentrat­ion did almost lead to an equaliser almost straight away as Corby went on the attack straight from the kick-off but right-back Aimé Kamdem was on hand to make a goal line clearance to keep the scores at 1-0.

Then four minutes before half time Curtis Burrows put the finishing touches on an excellent team move by tapping home to make it 2-0 after some excellent one touch link up play down the right created an opening for the Moes.

Then Kevin Bastos made it 3-0 in first half stoppage time as his shot was helped into the net by an onrushing defender and all of a sudden, the game was all over.

Dynamo Head Coach Brad Munn spoke to his players at half time and prepared them for the potential onslaught that would come in the second half and after the game he said how pleased he was that his team managed to control the half without having much of the ball.

The Dynamo defence stood firm during the second half, and they were able to cope with whatever Corby Town threw at them whilst also being alive enough to try and hit their opponents on the counter-attack.

In reality the winning margin could have been a lot more if it wasn’t for the Corby Town goalkeeper. He made great saves from goal bound shots from Kevin Bastos, Alex Steadman and Sacha Markelic to prevent it being more.

It was an excellent performanc­e from Dynamo who have just come through a really tough run of games, and they will be hoping to use this performanc­e as a springboar­d to push on and pick up some more results before Christmas.
