DEPLETED COBBYDALERS UNDONE ON HEAVY PITCH

          Cheadle Town climbed a place ahead of the Cobbydalers after they beat the Yorkshire side five-two on Saturday. The Cobbydalers were without Hancock (suspended) and Moses, Trueman, Erangey, Hillhouse and Storrie (all injured). Manager Danny Forrest was forced to give Shannon Pocock, who has just moved to Silsden from Swindon, his debut and recall Leon Smith to the starting line up on a very heavy pitch, which suited the smaller, lighter players rather than the heavier ones. 

          Cheadle  started with two chances from a short corner. Callum Jacovlevs saved the first effort then Robert Foulds cleared the second before Silsden took the lead. Josh Kaine hit a superb ball over the Cheadle defence and Niall SULTAN chipped it over the advancing keeper from twenty-five yards out. 

          There was a period when neither side could dominate but Cheadle equalised when Tom Henderson was dispossessed. Full back Danny Vincent closed down George Blackwell but, without a forward tacking back , Cheadle exploited the space behind Foulds and the ball was crossed into the box, where WEBB tapped it home midway through the half.

          Silsden responded with a penetrating run from Wademan, who saw his shot blocked close to the  goal line and then Sultan hit the Cheadle bar with the keeper stranded. Leon Smith setup Wademan with the rebound but his shot was inches wide. Jacovlevs then saved a powerful shot from Matt Gedman, who had been setup by Pickering. 

          Town took the lead ten minutes before the break. The goal, although down the right, was a mirror image of Town’s equalised. A failure to track back by Sultan isolated Foulds and Blackwell slid the ball to HINKS to knock it home. Silsden should have equalised before the break but Sultan, having broken down the left, overhit his cross out of the reach of Wademan.

          With Pocock finding his feet, most of the midfield work fell to Josh Eastwood, who was always in the thick of the action but the midfield was increasingly starved of support with none of the four front men tracking back. It was as if the players had taken a step backwards after all the hard work Forrest and Matt McNeil had worked on the shape of the team. Cheadle’s third was a case in point. From a corner the ball was pulled back to edge of the Silsden area where Liam Tongue was free. TONGUE blasted the ball home.

          Ben Cox replaced Pocock and Nicky McNally came on for  Henderson but the shape didn’t change much, leaving the defence at full stretch. Sam Jacomb made two superb tackles and Josh Kaine was composed but the defenders, who had so much to do, gradually tired and the advantage was with the runners, as pitch deteriorated. Jacomb headed a corner clear but it fell to PICKERING who had time to pick his spot.

          Two long range efforts from the Silsden forwards shook the top of the net and Jacomb’s powerful header went straight to the Cheadle keeper. Smith should have pulled a goal back but the final touch took him too near the Cheadle keeper. In stoppage time PICKERING out ran Jacomb to make it five before WADEMAN was released by Eastwood to notch a consolation goal.

          Forrest was disappointed. “We were under strength but I thought we had enough quality to be able to get something out of the game.” Maybe, but it was difficult with so many injuries.
