Emery Is The Pinball Wizard 

Both sides came into this encounter having shown good form in recent weeks but it was a buoyant Newport Pagnell who came out on top as Rangers suffered their first league home reverse of the season. Rangers looked more dangerous in the first half as they almost took the lead after eleven minutes after the ball fell to David Burton-Jones who fired in a low shot across goal, Ollie Wilkinson was in the right place to clear the ball off the goal line. Ranger’s excellent defensive display limited the Swans strike force to feeding off scraps, while the hosts themselves only managed to carve out half chances. Dan Schiavi’s free kick found the head of Jack Cotton but his header lacked power as Mark Osborn comfortably saved. Scott Coupland found himself racing clear only to be denied by the advancing Osborn. Charlie Coulson and Daniel Flack combined well on the stroke of half time, however, the final shot was too weak as it bobbled through to a grateful Osborn.

Newport were a different team in the second period, showing greater hunger and intensity as they went through the gears. It didn’t take long for Luke Emery to register on the score sheet, the match resembled a pinball game as first Remy Forrester hit the left-hand post, then Wilkinson smashed the rebound against the other upright, eventually Emery took control as he drove the ball into the roof of the net. Rangers look stunned and the Swans capitalised when Elliott Sandy released Forrester who in turn squared the ball for the unmarked Emery to side foot his second of the match and ninth goal in the last three matches. Deeping tried to get themselves back into the contest but the well organised Newport defence stood firm. With nine minutes remaining substitute Tom Waumsley produced a delicious flick that went wide of the post, within a minute Coupland lobbed the ball and forced a lovely fingertip save out of Osborn. Dom Lawless had two golden chances to wrap up the points in added on time, the first saw him knock the ball past keeper Richard Stainsby, great covering from Tom Smith forced Lawless to drive his shot across the face of the goal and narrowly wide. The second saw Lawless win a foot race against Flack before placing his shot agonisingly wide of the target.

Emery Hits Four To Sink Sileby

Newport took an early lead at a rain soaked Willen Road and it was Saturday’s goal hero Luke Emery who opened the scoring neatly trapping a Remy Forrester corner before turning to fire home in one motion. When Darryl Smith’s free kick crashed against the upright, it was Emery who was on hand to follow up to double the lead. Smith almost got in on the act again when he headed Forrester’s corner powerfully towards goal but alert defending on the line saw the ball cleared to avert the danger. With only eighteen minutes on the clock Emery was upended in the penalty area, converting the spot kick himself to complete his second hat-trick in four days. Newport threatened to run riot as they played with great purpose, they attacked in waves, their slick passing allowing the ball to do the work in extremely difficult conditions. However, Sileby stood firm as James Goff pulled off the first of a string of good saves to deny Sam O’Neill. Goff was called on again soon after to make a wonderful flying save to prevent an Elliott Sandy goal. Sandy was frustrated once again as Harry Osborne blocked a thunderous shot. Rangers did not manage to muster a meaningful attack until the thirty-seventh minute, Swans keeper Mark Osborn made a stunning point blank save when it looked certain that Brian Farrell was about to score for the visitors. On the stroke of half time Osborn showed good hands to save a Michael Byrne free kick.

Goff made another good save early in the second period after Emery and Sandy combined well to set up Smith. Luke Stevens shooting wide from outside the area and Lewis Burgess testing Osborn from thirty yards demonstrated that Sileby were going to compete better after the break and the introduction of Nathaniel Ansu provided a new dimension to Sileby’s play. Newport continued to press and pass well and Smith showed some sublime skills, twisting and turning before curling his shot narrowly over the bar. Dom Lawless was full of running as he raced down the touchline to put a pin point cross onto the head of Emery, Goff saved the initial attempt but could not prevent Emery helping himself to his fourth goal of the night. Rangers came close to a goal when Ansu knocked the ball past Osborn only to see Ollie Wilkinson clear his goal bound shot. Smith then added a fifth as his well struck shot proved too strong for Goff who managed to get a hand to the ball but could not stop it crossing the line. Within a minute the scoring was completed when Lawless chased a through ball, his persistence paying off as he managed to net the Swan’s sixth. Deep into added on time Dave Baker was dismissed and Luke Stevens blasted the resultant free kick over the bar.

Stalemate As Two Unbeaten Runs Continue

League Positions at kick off: 5th vs 6th

This was the first meeting between the Swans and Rangers this season and it promised to be a closely contested affair following the two competitive matches last season where the home side took the honours 1-0 on each occasion that they met. At the start of the day the visitors from Lincolnshire were sitting pretty at the top of the form table with 16 points from their last 6 games, however, neither side had lost a league match since September with the Swans themselves picking up 14 points from their last 6 games. A lively start to the game saw a Dan Schiavi free kick being blasted at the wall before Schiavi struck the rebound sweetly, forcing a flying save out of Martin McIntyre. On fifteen minutes Darryl Smith’s sublime cut back allowed Sam O’Neill to lose his marker and put a slide rule pass in to Dom Lawless who slotted home to give the Swans the lead. The remaining half an hour belonged to the hosts as they dominated possession but failed to capitalise on numerous corner kicks.

Rangers emerged after the break with a much more energetic approach and it only took them 8 minutes to draw level when Charlie Coulson’s inch perfect free kick was headed home by Luke Hunnings. It was now Deepings turn to control the proceedings as Newport sat too deep, inviting their opponents to push forward. Twenty minutes into the half Scott Coupland curled a delightful shot from the edge of the area only to see McIntyre palm the ball to safety, within a couple of minutes McIntyre was at it again as he denied Scott Mooney with an excellent save. With six minutes left a mix up between Richard Stainsby and his defence allowed Lawless the chance to shoot, his first shot was blocked and his second hit the retreating goal keeper on his line. A similar incident in the dying moments allowed Coupland through into the area but once again the defence did enough to preserve the score line. With almost the last kick of the game Newport had a free kick just outside the penalty area, Stainsby gratefully gathered up Lawless’ tame effort. Quite often the plaudits go to the front men and goal scorers, however, it was clear to see why these two teams are in such good form as their defensive units were superb. They more than played their part, not only in breaking up opponent’s attacking moves but also by making themselves readily available to support their own attacking moves, their contribution should not be underestimated.

Summary

Once again these two sides had to battle through near gale force winds to play a match that provided good entertainment for the spectators. Sileby played with the wind largely at their backs in the first half and they managed the conditions well. The flight of any ball hit at pace was entirely unpredictable and this proved costly to the Swans as both Ranger’s goals had an element of wind assistance about them. The first came after a massive free kick from the halfway line caused enough confusion in the Newport defence for Sileby to capitalise with a well taken goal from Stuart Macmichael. The second had more than a touch of good fortune as the ball swirled unpredictably when Merdy Maki scored directly from a corner. However, it is great credit to both teams as they tried to play passing football, keeping the ball on the ground as much as possible. Newport refused to lay down and came back twice with well taken Dom Lawless goals. It was Lawless, looking to complete his second successive hatrick, who stepped up to miss a penalty at the end of the half.

If the first half was fairly even the second was dominated by Newport as they drove on in search of victory. It was very much a rearguard action for Rangers as they thwarted attack after attack. Sileby’s own attacking ambitions where largely forgotton when, with half an hour left to play, their task was made even harder with the avoidable dismissal of Troy Johnston for two silly yellow cards. There was some impressive defending from the back four as Newport laid siege to Ranger’s goal. Robert Russell came to their rescue with a fine save from a second Dom Lawless penalty in the last minute which appeared to have secured a point. The Swan’s were not quite finished and it was the woodwork that finally denied them all three points as a Keith Williams header agonisingly crashed against the crossbar.

Summary

Both sides attempted to play football on the ground in yet another match played in strong winds. The Swan’s dominated the first half, with the wind at their backs but failed to capitalise on the numerous chances they created. At times it seemed as if they wanted to walk the ball into the net where a hard shot in the unpredictable, swirling wind would possibly have been more productive.

The end of the half saw the first of two bizarre moments in the match; the ball was kicked out of play and, as is often the case at this level of football, the ball appeared to be not easily retrievable. The referee turned to the far side of the pitch to signal for a replacement ball, meanwhile, Sam O’Neill went to retrieve a spare ball from the mouth of the player’s tunnel. Despite the protestations of fans and players from both sides the referee decided to book O’Neill for leaving the field of play and re-entering without permission. Maybe the UCL should not announce that an assessor is in attendance at matches as this clearly and adversely changes how a referee makes decisions, common sense is abandoned in favour of petty decisions with the officials afraid of making mistakes.

The second bizarre moment was the goal (described above). Deeping came into the game more after the break, mainly thanks to the influence of Luke Avis whose composure on the ball was to be admired. However, Rangers were largely restricted to efforts from distance. The Swans pressed well in search of an equaliser but to no avail.

Summary

The Swan’s bounced back after a heavy weekend defeat to take all three points from a plucky Sileby side. Extremely strong winds threatened to hamper the match, however, both teams managed to play some good football. Sam O’Neill provided an excellent cross for Fazel Koriya to thump home the only goal of the game midway through the first half. There could easily have been more goals as both sides were denied by the woodwork on more than one occasion. Sileby pressed well in search of an equaliser and will feel that their low league position will become a thing of the past if they have a little more luck in front of goal.
