TODMORDEN Borough Reserves came from behind to complete a double over visitors Wyre Villa.

After only four minutes Borough found themselves behind after a Wyre player took the ball from a cross, beat a defender and put the ball in the net.

Gradually, however, Borough started to get on top and create chances, the best going to Terry Lowe, who hit the post with his shot.

The ball then went from one side to the other before Marvin Bonny latched on the ball and stuck it away for the equaliser.

Borough had to defend solidly at the start of the second half, but then took the lead.

It came from good interplay between Dave Kay and James Starosczcuk before Kay found Bonnie, who hit it past the keeper.

The home team started creating more and more chances and Lowe hit both the post and bar as they tried to kill the game off.

It looked as though they might have to settle for a draw, however, after conceding a penalty.

But manager Craig Milnes, playing in goal, brought off a fine save to give Borough the points to climb away from the bottom places.
