Colne Suffer Setback at Prescot

By

Colne’s bid for the play-offs suffered a setback at Prescot Cables on Saturday when they went down to defeat after taking an early lead.

Prescot looked the stronger side in the opening minutes with some early pressure that kept the Reds on the back foot. But Colne stunned their hosts with their first meaningful attack after ten minutes when Mamadou Djabi challenged their keeper as he came to clear a back pass just outside his area and Djabi followed up to fire home the loose ball from a tight angle giving the Reds the lead.

Colne looked comfortable with the lead as Waqas Azam and Matty Morgan combined to force a corner which was scrambled clear by the home side. But as play switched to the other end, the Reds gifted Prescot an equaliser when Alex Coleman’s back pass bobbled past the boot of Hakan Burton and finished in the Colne net for an own goal after 13 minutes.

Colne looked to restore their lead and another promising raid by Morgan on the right wing produced a dangerous cross from the bye line that was well taken by the keeper at the near post under pressure. After 22 minutes, Simon Nangle won the ball in midfield and found Josh Hine who cut into the penalty area past the defenders before unleashing a goal bound shot that was turned over the bar in a great save by Cables keeper Ollie Taylor.

At the other end, Prescot came close when Chris Almond headed wide at the far post from a corner and the Reds defensive wall stood firm to twice block a free kick on the edge of their area.

After 34 minutes, Alex Curran’s run took him to the bye line and his low cross found Djabi in front of goal but his close range shot was blocked by home defenders and scrambled clear.

Four minutes later, Prescot took the lead when a corner kick found Almond in front of goal and his close range header gave Burton no chance.

As the second half began, Colne pushed forward looking for an equaliser and forced a series of free kicks around the home penalty area and Nangle had the ball in the net when Billy Priestley nodded the ball down for him but the goal was ruled out for off side.

On the hour, Prescot went further ahead when a Colne attack broke down and a quick counterattack found the Reds defence stretched as a low cross reached the unmarked Almond on the edge of the Colne area and he scored comfortably for a 3-1 lead.

Colne pushed forward looking to reduce the deficit but left gaps at the back and Josh Klein-Davies and Jordan Wynne both had good chances but were denied by Burton in the Reds goal. While at the other end, Djabi’s cross was cleared off Curran’s toes in the home goalmouth and Krishnan Patel blasted high over the bar from a half chance.

Colne will hope to put this result behind them when they travel to Leek Town next Saturday for what promises to be another tough fixture in the Evo-Stik West.
