Me, being me, said "I'm not stopping in to watch Chelsea v Liverpool - it will be crap" lets go to Lenton Lane and see the local derby...
We arrived at the gorund with 10 minutes to go, and although there were quite a few cars in the car park, there weren't many bodies about -- every player must have a car !!! At kick off I counted 25 present, the actual official figure was 27. A local derby? 27? Must be soul destroying for the people that work so hard to ensure these games actually take place - they must sometimes ask themselves why they bother....
Greenwood's CRAIG MEAKIN opened the scoring for after three minutes, a great driving run took him to the egde of the box and from there he curled a beauty past the Dunkirk keeper.
The visitors had a chance to level on 9 after Phil Massingham was tripped in the box. The striker got up and took the spot kick - but a great diving save from the home keeper kept the ball out.
DANNY WALSH doubled the home teams lead in the 23rd minute, latching onto a neat through ball before running on and slotting past the keeper.
When Dunkirk won a corner 4 minutes later, the ball in seemed to be over-cooked a little, but JARROD WESTCARR was waiting at the far post to gather and fire across the keeper and into the net. H-T 2-1
Dunkirk created a dozen chances in the second half, but a combination of poor finishing, good defending and decent keeping meant the chances all went begging leaving us with a 2-1 final score.
Tea £0.60 excellent
Coffee £0.70 excellent
