Skelmersdale 1-2 Droylsden

A superb strike into the top corner by Domaine Rouse ten minutes from time saw Droylsden take all three points on a frustrating afternoon at Voltair Park.

With the clock ticking down as the Bloods, despite much possession, had failed to break down a stubborn Skelmersdale defence,Rouse collected the ball outside the box, turned and hit the ball into the top corner.

The home team took an early lead in nineteen minutes,Mukendi, rising high from a corner to nod home.

Droylsden had already squandered two chances before that, Gonzales heading wide unmakes from six yards and Kirkman making a fine stop from Caddick.

Mukendi had a chance to make it two, hitting the side netting brim inside the six yard box but Caddick made up for his Eskisehir miss by striking home with six minutes of the first half left and could have scored again after a great run in the box only to drag his shot ride.

The second half proved a frustrating one for Droylsden, having much of the possession but creating little in the final third.

Kirkman again denied Caddick with a good save, Ollie Ford, on for Gonzales, saw his follow up shot blocked while Aaron Burgess saw his effort fly across the face of goal from inside the eighteen years box.

Rouse’s strike looked like it might open up the floodgates but Kirkman twice denied the Bloods, saving from both Caddick and Golden.
