Intro –  The Blues were looking for three points to end a disappointing run of results in the league, but experience told them that Barnton would be no pushover in spite of their lowly position in the table. There would also be a fair sprinkling of ex-Blues players looking to put one over on their former club.

First Half –

The first surprise was that the game was on at all. Heavy rain had left the pitch sodden but full marks to the match officials for permitting the game to go ahead.

Kicking up the prodigious slope the visitors found it hard to launch attacks with most of the early raids coming from the flanks. Callum Gardner was the first to create an opening, his low shot being well saved by goalkeeper Callum Shuttlewood. A high ball into the box found Damian Skolorzynski in a surprising forward position, but the ball couldn’t be controlled. On 14 minutes Danny McLaughlin’s cross somehow missed everyone’s outstretched legs.

The was a shock for debutant goalkeeper Ben Chapman one minute later when Sam Houghton’s opportunist 40-yard free kick took him by surprise and he was relieved to see the ball drop just over the crossbar. Houghton had another chance shortly after, this time his effort flashing wide of the target.

On 32 minutes Winsford’s bogey man, the much sought-after Chris Smith, had a great chance to open the scoring but hesitation allowed the visitor’s defence to recover.

GOAL!! The opening goal came on 34 minutes as a result of Damian Skolorzynski’s surging run down the left and a low cross that was turned into his own net by Barnton’s Chris Yearsley. It was no more that the Blues deserved with them seemingly adapting to the conditions better than their opponents.

Second Half –

The heavy conditions made playing down the slope a big plus, and Winsford were quick to react to their advantage. Gardner should really have added to the score on 49 minutes when McLaughlin put the ball on a plate for him, but from the edge of the box he spooned it high over the bar. To be fair the conditions probably had a lot to do with it.

Front man Mike Koral was coming into his own and there was a sign of things to come on 50 minutes when he set up McLaughlin, but his shot was well saved.

GOAL!! Koral was the creator once again three minute later and this time there was a positive outcome. When he threaded a perfectly weighted ball through to James Rothwell the Blues stalwart used all his experience to control it and place it low under the advancing goalkeeper and into the net.

There were further efforts from Mike Taylor and Jason Fowles as the Blues were making their dominance in midfield count, with the industrious Ryan Hopper seemingly revelling in the conditions.

GOAL!! Mike Taylor got the goal he deserved on 75 minutes when his low hard drive proved too hot for Shuttlewood to handle and the ball nestled in the back of the net.

Hopper’s effort was wide of the target and Skolorzynski’s blast was blocked on the line as Winsford made moves to get their goal difference in the positive again.

GOAL!! The scoring was rounded off on 82 minutes when Scott Taylor’s long cross from the right found substitute Robbie Hatton waiting unmarked at the far post and he had the simple job of tapping the ball into the unguarded net.

 

Verdict – It may be that some of the Winsford players had been told they were drinking at the last chance saloon as this was a much-improved performance and there wasn’t one player who didn’t give 100% effort.
