Report: Reds ease to Trinity win

Another big three points for Harriers….

Declan Weeks

HARRIERS hit three unanswered second half goals to record a comfortable 3-0 victory over Gainsborough Trinity at Aggborough.

Joe Ironside slammed the team in front just after the break before first Harriers goals for Fraser Horsfall and Dec Weeks completed the job.

Harriers were on top from the off and, after a fairly controlled beginning, they started to pile on the chances as Ngwatala drove just wide and Jimmy O’Connor forced a good save from Henrich Navas with a well-directed header.

On 25 minutes only the woodwork denied as Harriers as Ngwatala’s low finish bounced off the post – The Frenchman driving wide of the post from Austin’s cross just a minute later. Ironside saw a header cleared off the line on 41 minutes before Andre Brown’s first-time finish was diverted just off target.

The hosts wasted no time in storming ahead after the break; barely two minutes gone after the restart when Ironside, picking up on a ball, calmly held off his man before driving the ball on the angle, beyond the reach of Ravas.

Austin might have added a second a minute later with a rising effort that bounced off the bar, but the second goal came with the hour mark as Horsfall poked the ball over the line after Ravas had spilled Ironside’s attempt.

Sub Sonupe then had a brace of chances as he looked to stretch the visitors, but the game was put to bed with another very well-taken goal; Weeks with his first in club colours as he combined with the winger before slotting the ball into the bottom corner.

It took until the 89th minute for Brandon Hall to have a save to make as Gainsborough searched for a consolation but his smart reflexes took care of efforts from Davie and King.
