Comeback Curzon Win keeps Faint Playoff Dreams Alive
In a Greater Manchester derby, the Nash come out on top after a rocky opening period which seen FC United take the lead through a well worked Willoughby goal.
Curzon just had to let the FC United tide settle before they started to take over the game. FC United could have added to their lead inside the first 15 minutes, however Curzon played well to combat the onslaught.
Five minutes before half time, Curzon turn the match in their favour with a headed goal from Miller. Curzon came out for the second half looking to grab a quick second goal, Hunt obliged at the back post from a corner with another headed goal, making it 2-1.
From that point on Curzon never looked like letting the lead slip, especially after FC United skipper Winter was sent off after an incident on the half way line.
Miller somehow with some great tricky got himself free and in a one-on-one situation, he rounded the keeper and slotted home number three to cap off a great day for Curzon.
Manager Mark Bradshaw will be pleased with back to back wins, which takes Nash upto 11th in the National League North and within six points of the playoffs with two games in hand over some of their rivals above.
The playoffs may be a stretch to far with only eight games to play, however, in this league a good run of wins can soon elevate you up the league. Nevertheless, they could be the late surprise package considering Curzon’s form since the turn of the year.
Curzon have only lost twice in this years 12 league games, a win tomorrow night would see them three points off the playoffs. The mindset must be, if that happens – let’s go for it!
