Desborough Town 1 Holbeach United 2
Saturday, 15 March 2008
Desborough's title prospects suffered a knock as the mid table Tigers inflicted a first defeat in ten games on Ar Tarn.
Ian Dunn gave Holbeach the lead after seventeen minutes, converting a Mark Thompson pass, but Paul Caswell levelled for Desborough on the half hour, punishing a handling error by Nick Conroy in the visiting goal.
Good work by Matt Warfield and Ross Nichols set up Dunn's second goal five minutes before the break and settled the contest in the visitors' favour.
Both Ar Tarn keeper Tom Rix and Conroy made a series of fine saves.
Desborough: Tom Rix, Michael Stanton (Paul Doherty), Paul Malone, Danny Pownall, Chris Logan, Tom Mills, Jamie O'Neill (Stuart McClarty), Michael Sneddon, Michael Byrne, Paul Caswell, Jamie Gilsenan.
Holbeach: Nicky Conroy, Max Coupland, Adam Jackson, Mark Thompson, Dean Elston, Ross Nichols, Tommy Treacher, Matt Warfield, Ian Dunn, Omar Joof, Antonio Pascu.
