Points dropped for Borough

GSK Ulverston Rangers 0

Todmorden Borough 0

West Lancashire League Division Two

IT was a tale of points dropped for Borough.

While their goalkeeper Lee McGrath was a virtual spectator for most of the game, at the other end it was a different story.

But no matter how hard Borough tried they could not get the ball past the 16-year-old keeping goal for the home side.

Whenever he was not on hand pulling off a string of saves, Borough were unable to find the target.

Scoring has been a problem for Borough since playing restarted after the long lay-off caused by the weather.

Oliver Wood had previously been in goal-scoring form, but even though he has scored 20 this season, his tally has dried up.

It meant Borough came away disappointed from a game they dominated from the start.

With the wind blowing off Morecambe Bay against them the visitors were soon on the attack.

Chris Kay and Dean Farry on the flanks were causing problems and Elliot Gilford soon headed over from close range.

Wood and Kay saw efforts go wide as Borough pounded the home goal.

Scoreless at the break Borough thought it was only a matter of time before they took the lead as they camped in the home half.

Even when the home side went a man down when a player was sent off Borough could still not take advantage.

Nicky Taylor was outstanding in midfield but he was unable to prompt his side.

Borough travelled back furious with themsleves for not having taken the points.

After a good start to the season they have failed to achieve their potential after the long lay-off.

They now face a series of three games against high flying Furness Rovers.

They play them away in the league on Saturday with the return home league encounter the following week.

The next week they entertain them again in the semi-final of the league cup.
