Clueless City crash at Barton

A lacklustre display condemned City to a disappointing defeat against Barton last night, a side that had tasted defeat themselves at the weekend, going down 4-1 to Yaxley.

City started badly and soon found themselves behind when a speculative effort from Victor Osobu found the bottom corner after only 13 minutes.

City failed to rally to the opener and for the rest of the half, did nothing to suggest they could find a way back into the game, so the sides turned round at the break with City still trailing.

Following some no doubt choice words at half time from their manager, Robbie Nightingale, City were a little better in the early stages of the second period, and managed to pull level after 67 minutes, Ebby Nelson-Addy finding the net. At that point, City looked capable of pushing on and maybe getting in front, however, those hopes lasted only four minutes as Jimmy Hartley pounced on an error to flick the ball over a stranded Liam Gooch in the City goal.

City pressed as they had to do, but were undone on the break when Stefan Bailey nipped clear to slot home with six minutes left and round off a sorry night for the Lilywhites.
