Nostell MW kept their promotion hopes alive on Wednesday night as they defeated Nathan Collin’s Skegness Town 2-0 with second-half goals from Jack Owen (54minutes) and an injury time Danny Edwards fine finish.
The win for Welfare stretches their unbeaten league run to 13 games, and Joint Manager Jason Dodsworth was pleased with the win. “Nice to get back to winning ways. We had to change formation tonight due to missing players. Also a big performance from our defender and coach Bally who had to go in the nets, as we didn’t have a ‘keeper.”
“Skegness were a good solid team and made it really difficult for us in the first-half and it was a half that didn’t have many chances. Second-half we were a different team and we pressed a lot better and our work rate was second to none. However we had a scare when the Skegness forward smashed the crossbar with a great strike. It took a superb Jack Owen free kick to break the deadlock.”
“We then started to create more and more and under 21 forward Danny Edwards sealed the game with a well deserved goal. We were forced to bring 19 year old Edwards on in the first-half and he was outstanding and led the forward line really well. We move on to a really tough game away at Swallownest now on Saturday.”
While Collins was left feeling a little down, “really hard to take tonight, the lads gave us everything and played some really good football against a good side.”
“A couple of individual errors, one which was punished with a fantastic free-kick has ultimately cost us a game, which without doubt we deserved something from.”
“In the last 3 games we have played Hallam back to back and Nostell. We have shown we are not far away from either of them, but we need to cut out the silly naive mistakes that are costing us at the minute.”
