Blackstones 2 Desborough 1

BLACKSTONES picked up three points against bottom side Desborough but not in the style that the Lincoln Road management team would have liked.

Stones took the lead after just eight minutes on Saturday with Adam Scotcher on target.

But a goal on his debut by Wayne Dean hauled Desborough level and it took a double substitution to reinvigorate Stones in the second half.

Danny Baker came on to score the winner in the 73rd minute.

Joint Stones boss Darren Jarvis said: “We played very well in the first half and controlled the game. At half time we were very pleased with how we were playing.

“But in the second we simply did not play. We lacked discipline and they came back. We were fortunate to score the second.

“Desborough played very well and for the life of me I can’t think why they are bottom but it’s still the sort of game that we should be controlling.

“I think we deserved the three points but we wanted a better performances against one of the sides at the bottom of the table.”

Blackstones travel to St Ives tomorrow.

Blackstones: Jerome Chambers, Jacob Smitheringale, Andy Ellis, Matt Porter, Luke Hunnings, Andy Boome (Andy Buckle), Robbie Pearce (Steve Burns), Luke Avis, Adam Scotcher, Michael Nelson, Aaron Greene (Danny Barker).
