Lancaster City v Basford United


Russell's strike earns a well deserved point

Lancaster City fought off a very good Basford United side to gain a
valuable point.

City got off to the perfect start when Charlie Russell got on the end of
a well worked corner and struck in at close range.

Basford responded well and almost came up with an immdiate equaliser
when James Reid hit a nicely struck volley just wide.

It was not long however until they ultimately did find the equaliser
after a positive response and found the target when Nat Watson
viciously deflected shot looped over loanee goalkeeper Jack Sims.

Watson then came agonisingly close to firing the visitors in front not
for a superb finger tip stop by Sims.

City were keen however to remind Basford they were still in this game
and a second goal almost presented itself as the ball rolled past a
rushing Kieran Preston but Dom Roma came to cover.

Straight after the break James Reid had an audacious attempt from a free
kick tipped just over by Jack Sims.

Shortly after Sims was called into action again to deny Grantham with a
tremendous stop.

As the second half progressed it just seemed it was not going to be
Basford’s afternoon when they hit wide from a free kick.

Liam Hearn was then played in beautifully and looked certain to finally
get their lead but was denied once more but Sims who stood tall and big.

It was then City who looked to punish Basford, however, when Ryan Winder
struck low from a corner but was denied by Preston.

Lancaster then came agonisingly close again after a quickly taken free
kick but the ball drifts inches wide.

Full-time and 1-1 the score, and new Lancaster City boss starts his
reign with a point.
