Looking forward to this game like you it will be a very stern test . Still can't believe we have a full coach going barring maybe a few seats . It's even more special as it's a £15 bus not the usual tenner . This is brilliant of the fans !!!!!

This is Ilkeston's second pre-season match and it will be interesting to see their line-up for this game. The Eastwood match had loads of trialists but because of the travelling distance to Broughton, I would think only  a few serious trialists will take part.

Airbus keeper saves from Andre Johnson and the half time whistle goes
Half Time    :    AIRBUS UK  2  ILKESTON  0

It's a fair scoreline and Stainsby's penalty save has kept Ilkeston in the game.

I'm told that Mitchell was shown red for something he said.
Ben Reeves was the unfortunate Ilkeston player who was sacrificed for Mitchell's dismisal.

The players are back out for the second half.  Ilkeston have 11 players   Kieran Rowland is on.

Great pass by Walker but White hits the side netting. Early Ilkeston pressure Mitch Robinson heads over from a corner. Good effort under pressure.  White shoots but keeper saves.     0-2    50 minutes

Stainsby saves from excellent Airbus No 9. Brilliant save again by Stainsby from close range header by No 8. 
A plane just flew over low and distracted everyone.     0-2

Excellent interception by Bennett.  Airbus No 11 has great chance but Stainsby smothers his effort. Ilkeston corner is wasted.   Saving tackle by White denies Airbus   1-2     75 minutes

What a turn round. Airbus were superb in the first half and Ilkeston were lucky not to be out of the game. It looked like it might be a heavy defeat but once we got one back it was a different match.  After Palmer had equalised, Airbus made a big effort to find a winner and put Ilkeston under some severe pressure but the winner came at the other end. Replacement keeper Richard Stainsby was outstanding following Liam Mitchell's sending off. It's not often a team comes back to win after going two behind. Although only a friendly, It was a very uplifting victory very much enjoyed by the fifty-odd supporters that made the journey.

Actually thought our midfield were fine in the first to be honest but we're let down by the defence and forward line .

Match Report :
Airbus UK, Broughton  2  Ilkeston Town  3
In their second pre-season friendly, Ilkeston came from behind to surprise their highly rated Welsh Premier League opponents. Jermain Palmer scored a second half hat-trick to complete a stunning Ilkeston comeback. It had seemed like a damage limitation exercise would be needed at half time when Airbus led by 2-0. It could have been much worse as just before half time Ilkeston keeper Liam Mitchell was sent off and Airbus were awarded a penalty with a chance to go three up. 
Airbus started the stronger and went ahead with a header on 7 minutes. Ilkeston were struggling to create any kind of chances against a rock solid Airbus defence and they fell further behind on 16 minutes. Ilkeston gradually fought their way back into the game and Lavell White went close with a shot that was tipped over. A chance also fell to Alex Marshall but again the keeper saved. Reco Fyfe was prominent for Ilkeston but Airbus were generally dominating possession and should have scored a third on 44 minutes from the spot. Mitchell appeared to speak out of turn and saw red. Richard Stainsby came on to replace Mitchell and face the spot kick. Diving to his left he pulled off an excellent save to keep Ilkeston in the game.
Ilkeston started the second half much better and defender Mitch Robinson went close on 50 minutes with a header following a corner.  Stainsby was tested at the other end before Palmer pulled one back for Ilkeston with a header on 57 minutes only moments after coming on. The goal lifted Ilkeston’s spirits and Airbus were no longer the dominant team. Chances at each end were now becoming more regular. Airbus had a good chance with a swift break but Stainsby smothered the shot when facing a one on one with an Airbus forward. The home side went close to restoring their two goal advantage when a fierce shot whistled over the bar on 75 minutes but two minutes later Ilkeston equalised. A shot came back off the post to Palmer who thrashed it in from close range to make it 2-2. Airbus were stung into action and made a big effort to regain the lead forcing Ilkeston to defend in the final minutes. An Airbus header went just wide and Stainsby was kept busy as the hosts pressed for a winner. Then in the 93rd minute the winner came but not for Airbus. Lavell White won a corner for Ilkeston following a break out of defence and when the corner came over Palmer was in the right place again to complete his hat-trick leaving the Flyers with no time to recover.
