Glendale 2 – 0 RGU

Division One (East) at Kaimhill on Saturday 27th February

Glendale gave up ground rights to get this fixture played after so many weeks without games due to the adverse weather. Both teams are struggling in the lower half of Division One (East) and needed the three valuable points.

RGU took the initiative from the start and shots from Lynch and Campbell were held by Glendale keeper Walker.

In thirteen minutes RGU’s defence failed to clear the ball upfield and Glendale’s Christopher Garden scored with a drive from twenty yards.

In sixteen minutes RGU’s Adams made a run down the right and his cross was met by Thain whose shot slipped past the post.

The game was confined to the middle of the park with both teams moves breaking down outside the penalty box and there was no more scoring before half time.

Half-time: 1-0

RGU started the second half as they did the first pushing forward, but unable to break down a stubborn Glendale defence.

In fifty four minutes RGU were unlucky when a cross from Adams found Campbell’s head but the header hit the cross bar before being sent for a corner.

Glendale had a great chance when RGU keeper Milne could not hold a shot from Hay and it rebounded to Glendale’s Noble whose shot was cleared off the line by defender Lally.

Four minutes later RGU were reduced to ten men when Adams was sent off for a second yellow card incident. RGU continued to push forward at every opportunity but some good saves from Glendale’s keeper Walker frustrated them.

On two separate occasions Glendale’s Noble should have scored when with only keeper Milne to beat he put his first shot past the post and the second keeper Milne pushed for a corner.

Just on time Glendale settled the game when Andrew Noble finally managed to beat keeper Milne from ten yards making the final score 2-0.
