Colne 0-1 Castle


In a game that had both teams coming in level near the wrong end of the table with just goal difference separating them it was to be by a single goal that the game would be separated.


The first half was very much about both sides trying to take advantage in the game and with Colne edging it at times with their movement forward but the Castle backline standing firm and socking up all the pressure that they were bringing to us and Joe Slinn was also in fine form keeping Colne at bay on a few occasions with some super tip saves.


However, on 23 minutes it was Castle who took the lead after some superb work from Will Lloyd after Ethan Vale delivered a freekick into the box and Will won the ball and got into the area and the ball was knocked into the path of James askey and his shot was cleared only as far him to win the ball back and head the ball back across into the box for Jake Lovatt on the 6 yard line to dispatch away for his 3rd goal since he joined and now in two games in a row.





Colne had much more chances in the first half after this but could not break the Castle stronghold.


The second half was much of the same with Colne driving forward but not being able to find the chances and Castle taking advantage of their high line and breaking with Lloyd and Berks both causing issues after Castle made changes to what was looking like some tired legs out there on a heavy pitch in biting wind. Chances were there for Castle to extend the lead but the final ball was evading the team.


But it was Castle who was the stronger in their play and resistance and come back down the motorway system with all 3 points.
