Match Report v Kirkley (a)

KIRKLEY & PAKEFIELD 1 - 0 LONG MELFORD

THURLOW NUNN PREMIER DIVISION - SAT 10 NOVEMBER

Overall there was very little between the teams, with both sides shading a half Melford will be disappointed not to have gained a point out of the game. 

The home team 3rd placed in the League started by kicking down the slope with a fresh wind at their backs. 

Early in the game Kirkley's Cameron Russell headed over the bar, whilst Melford forced two corners and in another attack Josh Collins put his long range effort over the bar. 

The home team scored the only goal of the match after 20 minutes , through a chance that had an element of the Keystone Kops attached to the build up.

A cross from the right hand Kirkley flank from the excellent Kyle Haylock saw the ball come to the feet on two Melford defenders who each slipped over on the greasy surface in attempting their clearances, the ball rolled onto MIGUEL LOPEZ who fired into the bottom corner of the net from fifteen yards. Unfortunate for Melford but an element of good luck for Kirkley. 

The visitors created three good chances within the space of minutes, Hassan Ally crossing from the left flank, but there was no one in the Melford team able to convert -  common problem for The Villagers this season. 

After 32 minutes Kirkley were reduced to ten men when in an aerial challenge with Melford keeper Glen Morrison, Kirkley wide man Jordan Haverson sustained a facial injury and was taken to Hospital with a suspected broken nose, to be replaced by Lee Will from the subs bench. 

Although Kirkley were having the better of play, Melford made the home team battle all the way. 

Melford improved for the second period, creating numerous chances, but losing possession on the final ball. 

An inswinging corner from David Lopez saw home keeper Adam Rix push the ball round the post and shortly after that event the keeper did well to save a sweet volley from Melford striker Steve Adams. 

At the other end Melford keeper Morrison made two excellent saves from home man of the match, Kyle Haylock, to keep Melford in contention. 

The game petered out with no further real action at either end, with the home team keeping themselves in the title race, while Melfprd slip to 12th after back-to-back defeats to top three opposition. CHENOBERET
