The Macron Cup Round 3

Saturday, November 26th 2016

SILSDEN AFC 1 v 0 1874 NORTHWICH (AET)                                                    McNally 105.                                                   Att.102.

Although Nicky MCNALLY’s winner, at the end of the first period of extra time, put the Cobbydalers into the last eight of the Macron Cup, the victory was built upon a disciplined defensive performance against 1874 Northwich, a team thirty-four places above the Cobbydalers in the North West Counties leagues.Both sides created half chances in the opening minutes but it was Will Storrie who came closest to netting the opener, on ten minutes, when he hit a dipping drive which cleared the visitors’ bar. Three minutes later the Premier League team went even closer. Full back Paul Connor swung over a cross from the right. Callum Jacovlevs managed to punch it to the edge of the area, where Ryan Jackson volleyed it goalwards. Matty Moses managed to scramble the ball for a corner.Silsden’s shape looked better with more emphasis on defending. However it was keeper Jacovlevs who prevented the visitors taking the lead with two outstanding saves in a five minutes spell, midway through the half. A cross from Seventy-Fours’ Tyler Edwards was headed from point blank range by Ryan Jackson, but the Silsden keeper managed to tip it over the bar. Then Sam Hind got his head on a cross from the right, again being thwarted by another superb savefrom Jacovlevs.            The visitors certainly had more of the possession in the half with the Cobbydalers relying on break-always but Silsden were always in the game. Moses epitomised the new resolve with a crunching tackle on Jackson. Danny Riley went closest for the Yorkshire side with a header just before the break.

The opening period of the second half followed a similar pattern but the visitors’ attacks were often halted by the tenacious Connor Erangey and Josh Eastwood who stood firm in front of the back four before marauding forwards to support the attack. Both players showed great discipline and energy and both were involved in the five man move which almost brought Silsden the opener. McNally, latching onto Eastwood’s through ball, being denied by keeper Greg Hall.

The longer the game went on the more Silsden’s confidence grew and the visitors were forced to defend some quick breaks down the flanks. The visitorsfrustration led to a red card for Paul Connor ten minutes before full time for a foolish reaction. However the Cobbydalers still had to defend. Twice  Josh Kaine headed clear in the dying minutes before the game went into overtime.

With tiredness creeping in, the game began to open up. Leon Smith went close after a sixty-yard burst up the right but his effort cleared the bar and Sam Jacomb cleared the danger at the other end before Eastwood split the defence with a ball which McNally ran onto. With only the keeper to beat McNally was tripped by Daniel Thomas in the penalty area. Thomas saw red, Northwich were down to nine, but more significantly the Cobbydalers had a penalty. Hall savedMcNALLY’s spot kick but couldn’t save the strikers follow up.  

One- nil. Fifteen minutes to go. The nine men went for broke. A shot from Jack Woolley was scrambled for a corner then left back, Matt Russell, went on a mazy dribble from well inside his own half. In and out he weaved past six (very tired) Silsden players but, with only the Silsden keeper to beat, he sliced his effort wide and pulled a muscle in the process. He deserved better. However the victory went to Silsden.

A clean sheet, only the second of the season, the first being on the 13th August! Danny Forrest’s move to bring in defensive coach, Matty McNeill, is beginningto reap dividends. New boyRobert Foulds, at right back, had a fine debut. Sam Jacomb had his best game of the season but it was the desire to get behind the ball, when possession was surrendered, that made the difference.  The best performance of the season was the verdict of the fans.

The Cobbydalers will face either City of Liverpool F.C. or Hanley Town in the quarter-finals but before then is a County Cup game against Halifax Town on Wednesday night.
