Motormen step up a gear to win all points

THE Motormen suffered an early goal setback in their home game against Peterborough Northern Star but rallied round to bag all three points at the final whistle.

Daventry went a goal down in the 19th minute when Avelino Vieira found the top corner of the net with a superb strike on the home goal.

But their joy was short-lived as Daventry came back with a vengeance when Ben Foster equalised in the 33rd minute after a move which began in the centre of the park.

Despite opportunities from both sides the scored remained level at the half-time whistle.

The Motormen stepped up a gear in the second half and got their reward when Jon Crockett gave his side an 82nd minute advantage after he found the net following a deep cross from Ben Jones.

The Motormen sealed their win five minutes later when Nick Baillie scored the goal of the game to the delight of the home supporters.

Daventry United manager Darran Foster was particularly pleased that his side had battled back after going a goal down early in the match.

He said they know they can score goals but he made a few changes to the side in a move aimed at trying to stem the number of goals they were conceding in recent weeks.

“Their spirit is good and they are working very hard. I think this year they want to finish as high as they can.”
