Dabbers looking for a swift Derbyshire double
11:20am Friday 24th August 2012 in Sport
DABBERS will be looking to return to form that saw them thump Matlock last week when they entertain Ilkeston in the Evo-Stik Premier League at Weaver Stadium on Saturday, 3pm.
Nantwich Town 1 Kendal Town 1.
A LATE Josh Kenworthy strike prevented The Dabbers from taking all three points at the Weaver Stadium.
Lewis Short gave Jimmy Quinn’s men the lead on the hour mark but a failure to create clear openings and a defensive lapse cost Nantwich dear as they dropped two points at home.
The Dabbers were unchanged from the side that thumped Matlock Town 5-0 on Saturday, but they struggled to reach the standards of their win in Derbyshire.
Kendal had the best chance of the half on the stroke of half-time as Danny Williams cut-back for Kenworthy but the striker’s effort was well saved by Brain.
Sean Short made amends for an earlier miss on 59 minutes as he got in behind Winters and slotted into the Kendal goal.
The equaliser came four minutes from time as Kenworthy got in behind the Dabbers defence after a sustained period of pressure and slotted past Brain.
Nantwich pushed hard for a late winner and came close one minute into stoppage time as Smith flicked Hughes’ corner on for Rod McDonald but the Dabbers centre-back volleyed over.
Nantwich: Brain, Lowe, Flynn, Hughes, Bailey, McDonald, Cooke, McLachlan (Smith, 76), Beesley (Jones, 83), Wilson, Short. Subs: Maguire, Lane, Campbell.
