A depleted Cottesmore Amateurs side failed to register at the weekend thanks to the excellence and stubbornness of the visiting Dunton & Broughton Rangers goalkeeper and the upright.

Cottesmore were so short of players that their reserve team game had to be postponed so manager Neil Miller could poach a few of their players.

Cottesmore went behind in just the third minute of play and spent the next 87 minutes in search of an equaliser which never came.

The Amateurs’ Harry Stannard and Danny Swinstead where both denied by great saves by the visiting keeper.

With the luck going against them they also hit the post twice without finding the net.

Cottesmore have only won one game in 2014 but are targeting three points on Saturday when they welcome bottom of the Leicestershire Senior League Premier Division Highfield Rangers.

The recent dip in form has seen Cottesmore drop down to 13th in the 17 team division but manager Neil Miller, who only came into the job midway through the season, says this team should be judged on what they will achieve next season when they have time to develop and build.
