Dale Eve and Spennymoor slip to another league defeat

Winless streak: Dale Eve and his Spennymoor Town team mates slipped to a fifth defeat in six matches

Dale Eve and his Spennymoor Town team-mates slipped to a fifth defeat in six matches as they went down 2-1 at home against Gateshead in Vanarama League National League North.

Gateshead dominated throughout the first-half minutes and deservedly took the lead five minutes before the interval as Greg Olley fizzed in a low cross that was tapped home by Adam Campbell from six yards out.Things went from bad to worse for Spennymoor just two minutes later when Joe Tait was sent off for a stamp on Gateshead goalkeeper Jacob Chapman.

Despite their numerical disadvantage, the home side started the brighter of the two teams after the break and got themselves level in the 70th minute as John Ludufu’s cross was only half cleared and Scott McLean fired home.

However, with ten minutes remaining Gateshead regained the lead, seizing on a defensive mistake by Chris Mason, with Dan Ward teeing up Paul Blackett for a simple finish.

The result leaves Spennymoor tenth in the table, two points adrift of the play-off places.

Nahki Wells’s Bristol City were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Blackburn Rovers in the Sky Bet Championship.Callum O’Dowda gave the City side a deserved lead after dominating the first half as the Irishman’s effort deflected off Scott Wharton and looped over helpless Rovers custodian Thomas Kaminski.

Rovers, who struggled to create chances in the first hour of the game, began to come into life and were rewarded when Chile international Ben Brereton-Diaz rifled in from a tight angle after City failed to clear a cross.

City almost won it inside the final six minutes when substitute Wells had a header well saved by Kaminski.

The point keeps the hosts in 18th place, five points off the relegation places.

Willie Clemons and Reggie Lambe both started in Stowmarket Town’s goalless draw at home against Hashtag United in the Isthmian League North Division. The result leaves Town one place outside the play-off places.

Nathan Trott and his Nancy team-mates remain bottom of the second French division after a 2-0 defeat at home against Rodez with both goals coming in the first half through Jordan Leborgne and Joris Chougrani.

Kenni Thompson was introduced as a second-half substitute but could not prevent London City Lionesses from a 2-0 defeat away to Charlton Athletic in the FA Women’s Championship.
