Dynamic Duo Seal Comeback Win


Posted 25th February 2018 - Posted in Match Reports

Ollerton Town 1 ( Ludlow 23)  Hallam 2 ( Bishop 26, Dunne 68)

Hallam recovered from a goal down to seal a fine comeback victory in Nottinghamshire courtesy of goals from Micah Bishop and Mitchell Dunne.

The Countrymen came into the clash at Ollerton on the back of a gritty 3-0 win against Swallownest the previous week and were keen to double up here. 

Ollerton however, hit the front first as an in swinging free-kick from Lewis Bingham was brilliantly met by Kyle Ludlow, who nodded in to put Town' in front.
That lead only lasted three minutes though as Bishop stole in to draw Hallam level.
The hosts did shade the opening forty five minutes and could have retaken the lead right on the cusp of half-time as Brandon Shaw found himself on goal after a neat one-two with Eden Horner but was denied by a fantastic save from Dave Darwent in the Hallam goal.

And that spurned chance came back to haunt Town' as a loose ball in the centre of the park was threaded long to Dunne, who'd earlier came off the bench, to round the Keeper to put the Sheffield club in front for the first time and make it three goals in two matches.
Ollerton could count themselves unlucky not to have levelled ten minutes later as substitute Zac Argyle sent a thunderous drive against the Hallam crossbar and the resulting rebound dropped on the line as this proved not to be the hosts day.

So, Hallam climb one place to ninth and still remain eight points adrift of the top six, owing to results elsewhere not going in our favour but will look to make it a hat trick of triumphs at Sandygate next Saturday against Winterton Rangers, KO 3pm.
