Brave Selby have to settle for point

Toolstation NCEL Division One

Selby Town 2-2 Winterton Rangers

Winterton forward Luke Anderson scored the equaliser against his old side Selby

Brave ten man Selby Town had to settle for a point after Winterton Rangers came back from two goals down.

Brad Freer, the hero in the Rossington Main midweek game two weeks ago, scored the opener after 60 seconds, but was sent off on the half-hour mark by referee Mehdi Najefi to become the villain.

For the opener, Freer shot through a crowd of players from the edge of box. But that was the only highlight of his night.

Freer’s final indiscretion- a handball – which earned him a second yellow card, led to a penalty. Fortunately for Selby, Winterton’s Elliott Broughton made a meal of it by hitting the crossbar.

Within a minute Casey Stewart created Selby’s second goal with a fine run which eventually ended with Liam Flanagan blasting the ball into the net.

Selby almost added a third before the interval, but highly-rated young goalkeeper Jody Barford, the former Robins stopper, raced out to superbly deny Joe Dale.

Because of their numerical disadvantage, Selby tired and dropped deeper. Once as Broughton pulled a goal back, it was always going to be difficult for Christian Fox’s men.

The equaliser came courtesy of another penalty which former Selby man Luke Anderson hammered home.
