Re: *WHITEBALL SPECIAL* Sat 16 Feb: Sth Norm. v Walsall Wood: Live Updates

It would be nice if South Normanton could take points off Walsall Wood. Bear in mind that Normo are in a relegation fight and their recent results are much improved so although it's probably unlikely, it's not impossible.

Coventry Sphinx v Sporting Khalsa is a massive game for both teams. Both of them will be desperate to win as a draw or defeat would be highly detrimental to their promotion chances.


Ilkeston have 9 games left, 5 of which are away matches. Their remaining 9 matches include Sporting Khalsa and Walsall Wood. They also have to play Shepshed and Long Eaton who may prove to be difficult opponents. 

Most people think that Sporting Khalsa are our main rivals for the single promotion spot but they probably have the most difficult fixtures to end the season. Their remaining 12 matches include Coventry Sphinx twice, Ilkeston and Walsall Wood.  Another negative is that 8 of their 12 matches left are away from home. Their next 2 matches are away to Coventry Sphinx and Ilkeston. The results of these 2 matches could go some way towards deciding their fate. Two wins would make them promotion favourites. 

Walsall Wood have 10 games left, 6 of which are away matches. They still have to play Westfields, Coventry Sphinx and Ilkeston but it looks an easier run in than Khalsa’s.

Westfields are not to be underestimated and have 10 games left, 5 at home and 5 away. They still have to play Walsall Wood, and Coventry Sphinx. They also have to play Shepshed and Worcester City both of whom could prove to be difficult opponents.

If our promotion rivals were to win their games in hand , the top seven would look like this.    

                                                    Played      Points 
      Ilkeston Town                          29              58
      Sporting Khalsa                      29              56
      Coventry Sphinx                     29              55
      Walsall Wood                          29              54
      Westfields                               29              52 
      Shepshed                               29              49
      Worcester City                        29              47 

I’ve gone down the table as far as Worcester because they have already played twice against Ilkeston, Sporting Khalsa, Walsall Wood and Westfields.  So there is a definite possibility of a strong finish from City.  If they were to pick up the maximum 27 points from their last 9 matches they could win the league with 74 points.

Penalty appeal by Wood on 4 minutes as player goes down in area but ref says no.  Good run by Robinson for Normo but ball goes out.  First effort on goal by Roberts for Wood .     0-0    8 minutes

Re: *WHITEBALL SPECIAL* Sat 16 Feb: Sth Norm. v Walsall Wood: Live Updates

Wood are looking more dangerous going forward but Normo are doing alright so far. Wood winger Javia Roberts is very fast.   Corner to Normo - shot goes wide. Nearly a goal for Normo as another shot is deflected wide.         0-0    15 minutes

Penalty for Wood.  Not much doubt about that one.  Butlin scores bur keeper is really annoyed having almost saved it.        Sth Norm  0  Walsall Wood 1       18 minutes



Westfields v Romulus  is no score after 10 minutes

Not a lot of goalmouth action. Corner to Normo but keeper claims.  Good play by Monteiro for Wood but his cross is cleared.  Free kick for Wood near corner flag, Normanton clear.       Wood lead 1-0      30 minutes

Re: *WHITEBALL SPECIAL* Sat 16 Feb: Sth Norm. v Walsall Wood: Live Updates

Not much happening here.  Now we have handbags following a foul.  Normo 11 and Wood 8 get yellows. Normo shot goes well wide but at least it was shot. Normo are defending well but they have nothing up front.
Wood still lead by penalty goal        40 minutes gone

Another Normo corner. Ransome collects.  Good play again  by Javia Roberts but no one on the end of his cross, A poor first half comes to an end.  
South Normanton  0  Walsall Wood  1

Wood No 5 and captain Keena Roberts has been outstanding Nothing has got past him so far. Fumble by Smith but he gets away with it. Then a chance for Normo as ball flashes across Wood goal.      0-1    55 minutes.

Westfields still 1-1
Highgate 1  Dunkirk  0  (half time)
Now : Wolves Sporting 1  Coventry United  4

Desperate clearance denies Wood a 3rd goal.  Wood's Barnes gets a yellow for unnecessary foul.  Normo have had several corners but they never get on the end of the cross.       2-0       70 minutes

Wood are well in control without having to play well.  How did we lose at South Nomanton?   Bad foul by Tonks after losing the ball Yellow card might have been red.  Great chance for Roberts as he raced away but Normo keeper blocked his shot.        0-2        82 minutes
