Rothwell Corinthians 0 Rushden & Higham United 0
Saturday, 18 August 2012
Corinths are now unbeaten in this fixture in eight seasons, and will be happy to keep a clean sheet after their heavy FA Cup reverse at Ely.
The home side had the better of the opening quarter of an hour but created little in the way of a goal threat.
The Lankies had drawn a blank in four of their five pre season games and did so again in this contest at Sergeant's Lawn, although James Harrison either side of half time and Craig Harrower late on, forced decent saves from home custodian Brad Wilson.
Rothwell: Brad Wilson, Chris Torrence, Byron Brown, Tom Johnson, John Boss ((Tom Judge), Lee Deacon, Chris Hutchinson, Shaun Morris, Sam Johnson, Ian Hay, Luke Phillips.
Rushden & Higham: Kris King, Lewis O'Dell, Ash Green, Chris Walton, Ryan Kalla, Ben Lord, Darren Farrar, Stuart Goosey, Craig Harrower (Jason Oyston), James Harrison, Aaron Cormack (Jory Mann).
