Rothwell 2 Yeltz 2

31 August 1999

Let's be grateful for small mercies . Two more goals and an away point aren't too bad, even if it was at perennial strugglers Rothwell.

They took the lead just before half-time, but then Lyndon Rowlands turned in an Ashley Brown cross after the break. However, we were soon behind again when a free header made it 2-1 to Rothwell, but in the 72nd minute, after a Darren Wright piledriver from 25 yards hit the bar, Ada Cooper knocked in the rebound. (Thanks to DJ Grove for details)

For a bit of fun I thought I'd trawl through Anorak Corner and compare our results last season against the teams we've played so far:

Not so bad when you look at it like that, and definitely helped by the fact that we lost a horrible game at Rothwell last year . OK, I'm clutching at straws but if enough of us believe this is a turning point it WILL be.
