Evesham United v Rushden & Diamonds
In very windy conditions it was a difficult day for both teams to play football.
Both teams took time to settle and the 1st goal came after a Rushden attack saw keeper Lloyd deliver a long ball which Jak Thomas ran on to and head into the net. Rushden soon equalised after a mix up in the home defence saw then fail to clear their lines despite the best efforts of keeper Lloyd. Evesham took the lead again from a set piece when a bouncing ball into the Rushden box found Reece Davies at the back post who tapped in from a few yards.
Conditions were still playing a big part in the game and Rushden equalised again early on. A neat build up of play from Evesham saw the ball played from defence through to midfield through to Rio Davies who beat his defender and put Evesham back in the lead. As the game came to a close Rushden poured forward looking for a 3rd equaliser but were vulnerable to the counter attack and with a few minutes left of the game Evesham secured the victory with a goal from Ilvius Murati.
It was a tough game for both teams in awful conditions but played in the right spirit with 100% commitment throughout.
