Rudheath 1-4 WBAFC

Desperate to get back to winning ways Whaley started as though they meant it this week; controlling the first half and creating numerous chances on a lovely pitch, albeit understandably a bit bumpy, at Rudheath’s temporary home at Lostock Gralam .

In the first minutes Scorer had a goal disallowed for hand ball and then both he and Morris missed from close range before Morris finally settled everybody’s nerves with a delightful left foot chip from the edge of the area into Rudheath’s top far corner.

Two well-deserved goals in quick succession from the lively central midfield pair Streets and Barlow sealed the points before half time. Streets’ swivel and volley gave the keeper no chance and was followed by Barlow’s brave header in close at the back post following a Sutton corner. Although Mike Evans was constant aerial threat the game was now all but out of reach for the home side.

Whaley continued shortly after the break in the same vein but uncharacteristically both Scorer & Morris missed good opportunities to improve Whaley’s goal difference. Then a sublime free kick from 25 yards by Jack Bryning curled around the Whaley wall into Tattersall’s far corner gave Rudheath something to be pleased about and a ray of hope.

Burgess came on for the second half to add his alternative attacking approach and almost immediately made an impact; passing two defenders he cut inside and blasted his low shot into the keeper’s far corner. 1-4 Game now definitely over!

Despite a low key second half in which Whaley, maybe having heard on the tele-printer that Cheadle had lost, took their foot of the pedal but most important got back to winning ways with a controlling first half display and some good football.

Rylands 1-0 WBAFC

A cup final hang over seemed to have influenced a below Whaley performance today but taking nothing away from a resilient Rylands defensive display.

Whaley could have secured the win within the first half hour but for some poor finishing, the cross bar & and a solid performance from Yarwood in goal for Rylands.

The first half ‘action’ saw Sam Leadbetter breaking free down the left but with nobody on the end of his cross an open goal went begging; Joe Burgess turned and had his shot deflected on to the cross bar, Joe Armstrong headed over from just under the bar, Lee Morris & Adam Barlow both had shots that went just wide.

Although not really creating any chances Kris Bell & Jimmy Daniels for the home side were busy up-front demonstrating how to close down a back four.

The second half was very much a stale mate as Jimmy Sinker led by example in the heart of Rylands defence with teammate Jonny Dawson running the central midfield area. In the end it took a mistake to separate the two sides; a poor square pass along Whaley’s back four put Bell in with enough momentum to pass Newton & Armstrong and then to slot past an advancing Tattersall to get the all important goal. No matter what Whaley threw at Rylands they couldn’t generate a clear enough opportunity to level the scores.

A flat performance that could prove costly!
