Frus­tra­tion reigns for prof­li­gate Trin­ity

The Non-League Football Paper - - SATURDAY MATCH CENTRE - By Rob Hughes

IT WAS a case of chances missed for Gains­bor­ough, who fought back from a goal down to se­cure a point against Wit­ton Al­bion.

It was an­other game where Trin­ity strug­gled to get go­ing but with Nathan Stain­field and Maguire mar­shalling the com­bat­ive Rob Ho­p­ley well, the half had looked des­tined to fin­ish goal­less.

But the vis­i­tors went ahead a minute be­fore the break, Joe Maguire head­ing into his own net from James Fo­ley’s in­swing­ing free-kick.

Af­ter the break it was a dif­fer­ent mat­ter and the Blues’ should have been level seven min­utes in.

Su­perb foot­work from top scorer Ash­ley Wors­fold saw him clean through from Alex Byrne’s de­light­fully weighted ball but he dragged his ef­fort wide.

Two min­utes later Wors­fold had the ball in the back of the net, di­vert­ing Alex Sim­mons’ low strike, only to see the flag up for offside.

Gains­bor­ough were fi­nally level af­ter Greg Hall made a fine div­ing save from Byrne’s edge of the box vol­ley. Sim­mons did bril­liantly to re­cover the ball and stand up a cross to the far post that Wors­fold nod­ded home from close range.

As mo­men­tum shifted, chances came and went for the home side, sub­sti­tutes Ross Han­nah and Jonny Mar­getts, twice, miss­ing chances to score as it ended level.
