Basford Defeat Rugby Town

Basford United recorded their first home win in the Northern Premier League with an emphatic victory over Rugby Town.

The visitors started brightly and forced an early string of corners
which came to nothing thanks to some fine defending with David Boafo and
Robert Darkins prominent.

Urged on by the lively Jermaine Hollis Basford upped the pace and took a
deserved lead after 32 minutes. Ashley Bodycote in the Rugby goal could
only parry Dion Meikle's cross cum shot and Stuart Hendrie made no
mistake from close range.

Ruben Wiggins-Thomas drew a fine save from Bodycote two minutes into the
second half but Wiggins-Thomas was not to be denied for long as four
minutes later he beat the offside trap before firing home.

David Kolodynski hit the Basford crossbar with a shot on the hour, but
Meikle had the last word, meeting Blair Anderson's floated free kick to
score with a glancing header two minutes from time.
