Blyth’s prob­lems keep on mount­ing

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - By Paul Reece

LEAM­ING­TON ended a run of three league games with­out a win thanks to first-half goals from Jake Ed­wards and Kieran Dun­bar.

The Brakes took just six min­utes to break the dead­lock as Ed­wards headed home.

Lewis Horner’s cross was then headed nar­rowly wide by Few­ster on 20 min­utes.

The for­ward then nod­ded wide from Rob­bie Dale's cross six min­utes later.

Leam­ing­ton dou­bled their ad­van­tage just past the half hour when Dun­bar curled an ex­cel­lent 25-yard free-kick in.

Ahmed Obeng and Matt Sten­son both had chances to fur­ther ex­tend Leam­ing­ton’s lead be­fore half-time.

The Spar­tans were awarded a penalty in the 67th minute af­ter de­fender Aaron Cun­ning­ham was pushed in the back.

Few­ster took the re­sul­tant spot-kick but Tony Bree­den guessed the right way.

The Brakes should have added a third in in­jury time but An­thony Dwyer elected to shoot in­stead of pass­ing.

His ef­fort de­flected harm­lessly into Peter Jame­son’s hands, Blyth drop­ping into the rel­e­ga­tion zone.

STAR MAN: Jack Ed­wards (Leam­ing­ton) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
