Gedling MW 1-2 Radford

The Radford keeper made an horrendous mistake on 14 minutes when he misjudged the bounce of the ball allowing Dalton Stephens the opportunity to put the ball into an empty net for the home side. After this calamity Radfords Joe Meakin had a volley that was directed straight at the keeper. Phil Hinton came close with a Radford effort on 28 minutes when Joe Heggerty crossed into the area. Radford found an equaliser when Phil Granville crossed for Hinton to tap in from close range on 37 minutes. Just before half time Phil Granville had a shot that rebounded off the crossbar after good work from Carey Knight.

Straight from the restart Radford went on the attack when Joe Meakin sent in a pinpoint cross for Granville whose flick-on was turned round the post by the keeper. A minute later Meakin saw a shot from outside of the area go a foot over the crossbar, Radford took the lead on 62 minutes through John King. Phil Granville played a delightful ball through the Gedling defence allowing King to run on and round the keeper before slotting the ball into an empty net. King again came close to adding to the score when he twisted and turned in the area before seeing his shot go just wide of the Gedling goal. Radford came close to adding to the score when Meakin had another effort just cleared the bar from a shot from just outside the area and Knight blasted over from close range after Jaylee Hodgson had set him up.
