- Rugby Area Sport - Football: Borough make hard work of points at Pro Chance
Rugby Borough kept up their promotion momentum at the top of the Leicestershire Senior League Premier Division but made hard work of securing three points in their 4-3 away win at Pro Chance Academy.
Saturday’s outing could not have been in better conditions, playing on an excellent 3G pitch surface and relatively free from rain and snow, with Borough also seeing the return of a couple of familiar faces to the team in Max Johnson, Kane Finney and Max Proudlock.
In what was a fast paced game throughout, Borough had the upper hand scoring twice before half time from Charlie Whiteside and Josh Thompson. However the very young Pro Chance side were not put off by that and made a concerted effort to level up, with two goals of their own in close succession shortly after.
Ash Piper took his chance and beat the offside trap to slide the ball under the keeper, for the visitor’s third, however the hosts still kept going with the game getting very tense towards the last few minutes until Ryan Palmer hit a bullet of a ball to give Borough back the advantage.
Having seen his side come close to throwing away two points, Borough Manager Dan Carter speaking after the game said:-
I’m disappointed to be honest. Over the last five or six weeks we haven’t got going, we are just doing enough to win games. I could look for excuses; we have a massive injury list with seven starters missing for the last few weeks or so, but the lads in the squad have been good all season so it’s hard to pinpoint exactly what is going on.
I may have been a bit hasty recently with changes, trying to be loyal and get lads game time, when in reality I should just get the job done, but we live and learn.
Borough still hold a two point advantage at the top of the table and with two games also in hand over second placed Allexton and New Parks; this ahead of another Wednesday evening match with a visit from Hathern FC tomorrow, 7:45 pm kick-off at Kilsby Lane.
That is followed by the visit of Sileby Town on Saturday, with a 3:00 pm kick-off.
