Action Replay: Play On The Pitch 2016

4 May 2016

Take a look back on the action from Tuesday’s game at Victoria Park with a selection of action photographs from this year’s Fans Game.

Craig Hignett’s Home Team went one up in the first half when Jack McLean’s inch-perfect cross to the far post was nodded home by Darren Rowbotham.

And Rowbotham seized on a defensive error to make it 2-0 before the break, storming through to rifle a left-footed shot beyond Away Team keeper Dan Wilson.

However, Curtis Fleming’s side mounted a spirit response in the second half and were back in it within ten minutes as Paul Kenny hooked home skilfully to bring it back to 2-1.

The goal inspired the Away Team further and they piled on the pressure, finally getting on level terms when Ashley Holland drove a powerful effort in to the top corner from inside the area.

However, Hignett’s men showed great character to restore their lead when McLean ran clear on the right of the box and finished clinically in to the corner for 3-2.

The most dramatic moment of the night was saved for the final minute when Holland was upended in the box and Fleming’s men were given a chance to draw level from the spot – only for keeper David Brown to pull-off an incredible save to his right and secure the Home Team’s win.

Our snapper Mark Fletcher of Shutter Press was at the game and now you can take a look at his gallery of images from The Vic.
