DBA was back in action after 4 weeks without a game against Rushden & Diamonds.
Saw R&D take advantage of DBA's lack of match practice and created numerous chances and scored 2 deserved quick fire goals to race into a 0-2 lead.DBA created some great chances of their own but was thwarted by the R&D goalkeeper on more than one occasion. DBA finally got a goal back through the pace and composure of Connor.M. 1-2
DBA started to really get to grips of the game and pressed high up the pitch and caused R&D some more problems and scoring 3 more goals through Tom Smith and a further 2 from Connor.M completing his hat-trick. 4-2
R&D responded with a quicker passing and shutting down DBA quickly and really working to try and open up the defence. They were rewarded with a good through ball and finish to make the game 4-3. DBA then won a free kick just inside the R&D half which was delivered with real quality and finding Ryley Reynolds who brought it down and lashed a half volley past the keeper to restore the 2 goal advantage 5-3.
With the game being really open both teams were trying to find the all important next goal. R&D found it through the goal of the game with great 25 yard shot the flew into the top corner.5-4. DBA then responded again with Connor.M controlling a cross from Jakeel, turning and finding the net with a accurate left foot strike.6-4. R&D scored another through a good counter attack to make it 6-5 and piled the pressure on DBA without finding that final touch that level the game.
Game ends 6-5
Great game for the spectators (not so much the coaches) but at times some great football was played and was contested in the correct spirit. DBA wish R&D all the best for the last few games of the season.
