A look at how our players are getting on away from the club
Shaun Rowley’s Tamworth side got back to winning ways as they beat York City 3-2 at Bootham Crescent. Two Reece Styche goals had given Tamworth a 2-0 lead, but York hit back and 2-2 with just over 20 minutes to play. The game appeared to be heading for a draw, but the Lambs broke late on through Callum Powell and Darryl Knights’ shot went in off the post to give them a dramatic victory.
Dom Smith’s Southport scored a 95th minute equaliser to get a point at the New Bucks Head against AFC Telford United. Telford looked to be heading for victory ever since Marcus Dinanga gave them a first-half lead, but when Ryan Wilson handled a cross in the box, Southport were handed the perfect opportunity to level and Nathan Lowe slotted away the penalty.
Newtown’s winless run was extended to six games as they were beaten 2-1 by Llandudno. Ryan Sears had recovered from his shoulder injury to start the game, but goals from Tom Dix and Marc Williams were enough for Llandudno as Newtown left their comeback too late.
TNS came out on top in their top of the table clash against Cardiff Met on Saturday. TNS scored twice in six second-half minutes to give them a 2-0 lead, but Simon Spender gave away a penalty in the 80th minute and was sent off, leaving TNS with 10-men and just a one goal advantage for the final 10 minutes. Shrewsbury loanee Callum Roberts was brought on with five minutes remaining and he helped see out the win, meaning TNS now have a three-point gap at the top of the table.
John McAtee went into Saturday’s game for Halesowen on the back of scoring four times in their last three games, but he couldn’t get on the scoresheet against Grantham Town as Grantham won 1-0 in the FA Trophy 1st Qualifying Round.
AJ Leitch-Smith made up for his penalty miss last weekend by scoring from the spot against Hamilton Academicals, but it didn’t stop Dundee being beaten 3-1 and sending them to the bottom of the Scottish Premiership.
Finally, Colwyn Bay weren’t in action this weekend, so George Hughes didn’t have any game time.
