MATCH REPORT: City 0-1 Gainsborough Trinity

By Media Team

By Jack Towers

Ross Hannah Goal edges it for Trinity in poor game of football.

With the weather giving us some biblical rain as the game begun it set up nicely for an entertaining game of football at Giant Axe.

From the first whistle there were balls flying everywhere, misplaced passes and looked to be a game where everyone needed to be switched on.

This became a parent early on when Jon Stewart got caught off his line and was almost made to pay by Rob Wilson who could not capitalise.

As the first half progressed there was unfortunately more weather updates than the actual match itself with neither team imposing themself in front of goal at all.

Into the second and the Dollies got off to a great start and came close to opening the scoring when, after a superbly delivered ball from the right, found the head of Blinkhorn who was denied by a top save from Stewart.

Just as you thought the game might liven up it seemed destined to be a typical torrid weather 0-0.

But, as the weather started to brighten up, Trinity punished City who were switched off and took the lead on the hour mark.

A wonderful delivery from the left found Ross Hannah who cleverly headed home to the far post.

City were giving it there best efforts but it was Trinity who still looked more likely to score and should have had a second had it not been for as good as a save you will see anywhere from Danny Eccles.

It just was not to be the Dollies day and Trinity clawed away to hang on to a 0-1 win.
