Rainford returns to help Glossop to victory over Cables


Tuesday, 23rd November 2021, 9:42 am
Prescot went down 2-0 at home to Glossop

Cables have failed to score in eight league and cup outings this season and is one of the reasons they are hovering in the lower reaches of the Pitching NPL west division table.

Goals seem hard to come by, especially in the league competition, where they have only found the back of the net 21 times in 17 matches.

They drew a blank against fellow strugglers Glossop at Hope Street on Saturday and will rue missing gilt-edge first half chances to seize the initiative

And just to add insult to injury both the visitors' goals (44 and 90 mins) came from their old boy, Jamie Rainford.

Teams - Cables: Allen (M), Schmitdinger, Van-Aston, Colvin, Hollett, Devine, Johnson, Gregson, Buckley, Jennings, Dobie. Subs: Kelleher, Fulton, Cartwright, Brickell, Mafolo.

Glossop: Allen (H.), Aslam, Savogo, Coker, Hartshorne, Barratt, Nock, White, Rainford, Mulvey, Fallon. Subs: Shakeel, Jones-Griffiths, Glover, Hawley, Whalley.

Things will get no easier at the weekend when the Pesky Bulls make the long trip to Cumbria where they face second-in -the-table Workington Town.
