Barnton 2-3 Padiham

The Villagers search for a first league win of the campaign continues as they fell to a late defeat in a thrilling second half encounter against Padiham on Saturday afternoon.

The opening half was played out in tough conditions with both teams struggling to create any clear cut chances in the relentless rain. Ryan Malone had the best chance of the first half for the Villagers when he fired just wide with an effort inside the area, but it was the visitors who had the ball in the net right on half time only for the referee to overturn the goal for offside.

Half Time: Barnton 0-0 Padiham

The second half sprung into life when Dominic Craig gave Padiham the lead with an excellent finish inside the area after the Villagers had failed to clear their lines. Padiham should have doubled their lead moments later but Craig somehow missed an open goal after Rob Cooke had pulled off a great save to deny Jason Hart with a header.

Going behind sparked the Villagers into life and Chris Bandell got his third goal in as many games as he was on hand to tap in Chris Smith’s cross.

Malone then gave Barnton the lead with an outstanding goal as he linked up with Jason McShane and finished emphatically past their keeper.
In an end to end finish the visitors got themselves level on the 76th minute as Marc Young finished inside the area after some excellent build up play.

Sub Niall Ford was on hand to clear a Craig header off the line as the Villagers looked to hold on for a crucial point but the ultimate blow was to come with only three minutes left. Striker Kieron Pickup beat the offside trap to get onto the end of an excellent through ball Benjamin Hoskin and Pickup finished smarty past Cooke.

Jack Woolley had the best chance for the Villagers late on but once again they paid the ultimate price for lapses in concentration with another league defeat that sees them stay inside the relegation zone.

Full Time: Barnton 2-3 Padiham

Speaking after the game player coach James McShane was left feeling frustrated: “We’ve shot ourselves in the foot again, we know we have the quality going forward but we’ve got the cut out the errors.”
He added: “We’ve scored 18 goals so far this season and have played some top teams, if we can tighten up we know the wins will come.”
Up next for the Villagers is a trip to Irlam on Saturday before a crucial home double header against Widnes and Barnoldswick Town
