Swifts can't break deadlock
Lye Town 1 Stourport Swifts 1 MPL Sat 22nd Feb Att: 128
Stourport Swifts chalked up their fourth draw in a row as they failed to break down a stubborn Lye defence and missed several gilt edged chances.
Lye took a shock lead after just seven minutes when Kienan Palmer burst through the centre of the Swifts defence and blasted a low shot past Richards from 15 yards.
The lead lasted only two minutes however, when Jack Downing crossed from the right and Nick MacPherson turned to sweep into the bottom corner from six yards .
Swifts took control after levelling the score, with Downing seeing his goal bound shot blocked by Joe Colley, and he also headed just over the top after Lewis Platt opened up the Lye defence on the left. Lye almost snatched a surprise lead when a weak header from Timmins let in Geoff Hill, but his first time lob as Richards advanced dropped narrowly wide.
Mark Danks looked like putting Swifts in front after 60 minutes, but his goal bound effort was blocked by a last gasp tackle from defender Ryan Bridgwater. Hill looked a threat up front for Lye again when he evaded three challenges as he broke into the box but Richards saved well low to his right. Matt Fulloway headed over the top and in the dying minutes Elliott Lees just failed to connect with Downing’s low cross to snatch the win, but Swifts had settle for another draw.
