Ashton Utd. v Ilkeston ; Live detailed updates and goal alerts

Matchman returns for Saturday's visit to Ashton. This will be a very difficult game as Ashton are pushing for promotion and are on a good run, whereas we are well and truly struggling after six consecutive league defeats. Our luck has to change sometime though and we have recently done well on this ground. It would be nice to take a point and follow that with a win on Easter Monday against neighbours and relegation threatened Mickleover as I think that would be enough to make us safe. Whilst very sorry to lose Daniel Udoh I think that David Jones will be a natural successor. He's still a raw talent but he has a forward's spirit and desire which should bring us the goals we desperately need.

Header missed by Dean, Ashton's big No. 9, Hannis clutches ball gratefully. Williams is playing deep to help the defence. Nearly a goal for Ilkeston , Atkinson's shot cleared of the goal line. Great effort by Dexter on 15 minutes.

Another good save by Hannis keeps it at 0-1. Ashton are on top. Free kick in good position for Ilkeston but comes to nothing. Jones takes a blow when challenging Ashton's keeper. Half hour gone 0-1.

Ilkeston forwards are not in the game enough. Very few chances being created. Opportunity for Gordon his shot goes over.  Second goal for Ashton on 38 minutes, 0-2.

Nearly a third for Ashton. Lee close to pulling one back but his clever lob goes just wide Another decent chance for Lee but he blasts wide. Good spell by Ilkeston as half time approaches. Ashton keeper booked.

Re: Ashton Utd. v Ilkeston ; Live detailed updates and goal alerts

In my opinion Ilkeston are a bit unlucky to be two down but they are facing the wind in the second half so are facing an Ashton onslaught.  The players are back out. Second half is underway.

Good start  by Ilkeston. Corner won by Atkinson. Good play by Burrows gives Lee chance but keeper saves well.  55 minutes gone still 0-2 but Ilkeston pushing forward.

Unfortunately during the minutes silence before the game, chanting was heard from some of the Ilkeston fans. Maybe they were just coming into the ground and were unaware of the silence but it was disappointing and embarrassing for the supporters who were observing the silence

Lynda  - I only said what happened. The Ilkeston officials and supporters in the stand got very disapproving looks from the Ashton officials. Unfortunately the chanting came over very loud in the otherwise silence.

Re: Ashton Utd. v Ilkeston ; Live detailed updates and goal alerts

Again John - you know we are better than that - unfortunately going down the street to the turnstyle - we couldn't see through the 20ft or so, wall.  Understandably people are upset and annoyed at your comments, you know as well as I, that we participate and respect whatever goes on at other grounds and always have done.
I would suggest, in future (indeed if there is a future) you state facts, before posting words like 'disappointing and embarrassing' in the same sentence as 'our fans'.
