TUESDAY 18th AUGUST 2009 CARLISLE CITY 4-1 SILLOTH (COUNTY LEAGUE DIV. 1) City were looking for their third win in succession, whereas the visitors were yet to get off the mark in the league. City were without a recognised goalkeeper and defender Matty Trickett donned the number 1 shirt. Josh Little made his debut after just arriving in Cumbria, from Cornwall, and contacting the club via the website. City thought they had taken the lead in the 5th minute, but Simpson\u2019s header from Ward\u2019s pass was deemed to be offside. In the 7th minute, a fine 20-yard shot from Griffiths had to be pushed aside by the Silloth keeper. Ward then found Little, and the Silloth keeper was forced to save again. In the 14th minute, Little\u2019s header was saved. Two minutes later, Driver\u2019s right-wing cross carried to Simpson at the back-post and his header bounced behind via a defender. After 17 minutes, Ward showed good strength to hold off a defender and turn, but the Silloth keeper produced a fine save to block his shot. In the 19th minute, Griffiths freed Driver on the right, and the resulting high cross had to be tipped over by the keeper. Silloth had barely threatened as an attacking force, but City had a scare in the 20th minute when the ball was headed over the advancing Trickett, before bobbling just wide. City failed to heed their warning as Silloth went ahead in the 22nd minute. A shot from 12 yards bounced down off the City bar, and a Silloth attacker dived in to head home the rebound. City responded after 24 minutes with a move involving Sturrock and Ward, who found Driver but the volley was wide. After 29 minutes, Ward shot wide from a good position, and the Silloth keeper then saved at point-blank range from Simpson. Silloth could only preserve their lead for two more minutes, before Driver\u2019s corner was forced home byY allop at close range. A Silloth player was injured as he tried to prevent the goal, and had to be substituted. In the 34th minute, Driver ran well down the right, and his cross found Little, but his shot was blocked on the goal-line. There was a quiet spell in the ten minutes before half-time, although Bell was close from a corner just before the interval. HALF-TIME- CITY 1-1 SILLOTH Silloth probably shaded the early exchanges in the second period, before Cherry struck a fine 25-yard shot that needed tipping over by the Silloth keeper. In the 54th minute, City took the lead when Bell\u2019s great cross into the penalty box was headed in bySimps on, just in front of the Silloth keeper. In the 56th minute, Griffiths shot wide from 30 yards out At this stage, Silloth made their second substitution, but it did not stop City going 3-1 ahead on the hour. Sturrock did very well to beat his man and slip a pass through toWard, who beat the keeper for his first goal of the season. City replaced Little with Hartley, and Trickett produced a super save in the 63rd minute to tip over a goal-bound Silloth free kick. City threatened again when Yallop\u2019sheader was pushed aside by the keeper, from Driver’s corner. In the 67th minute, it was 4-1 when City scored a fine goal. Cherry passed inside to Simpson, who freed Ward on the right wing and his accurate cross was flicked into the net bySturrock. City were looking for more goals as Griffiths’ free-kick was headed by Yallop, but saved by the keeper. Ward’s right-wing cross then found Driver, but the keeper again saved Silloth. In the 70th minute, Harding replaced Cherry for City. A fine run by Rush up the left wing was followed by a cross to Ward, who could not quite convert the chance. In the 79th minute, Simpson’s free-kick was flicked by Driver’s head, but saved by the keeper. Driver’s right wing cross was then deflected into the path of Simpson, and his shot again tested the Silloth keeper. In the 80th minute, City’s third change saw Raine replace Sturrock. The only booking of the game went to a Silloth player in the 81st minute. Harding did well down the right, to find Driver but the cross was defended capably by the Silloth rearguard. After 85 minutes, Driver’s right-wing corner reached Yallop 35 yards from goal, and his sweet strike whistled past the upright. In the closing moments, Yallop’s free-kick was headed powerfully by Driver from 18 yards, and the keeper had to stretch to save. TEAM- Trickett, Cherry, Rush, Yallop, C. Bell, Driver, Sturrock, Griffiths, Little, Ward, Simpson. SUBS- Hartley, Raine, Harding, Henderson.
