MATCH REPORT: DUNSTABLE TOWN V LEAMINGTON
BRAKES ON THE BREAK
League leaders Leamington continued their apparent march towards the title with a goal in each half.
The game turned out to be an expensive one for Dunstable who lost both Gedeon Okita and Sam Doolan to injury.
The more serious injury was sustained by Sam Doolan, after a clash of heads just after the start of the second-half. A delay of twenty minutes was needed before Sam was able to be stretchered off for the attention of the paramedics.
The latest news is that he is up and about in hospital, despite a slight fracture of the skull. He was visited by Chairman John McLoughlin and manager Tony Fontenelle, who conveyed our best wishes for a continued recovery.
Leamington’s first goal came as a result of a swift attack on the left, and they were noticeably effective in the counter attack. Dunstable, lacking in rhythm following the forced substitutions, were earnest but unsuccessful in penetrating the well-drilled Leamington defence. The best effort came from a late curling shot from substitute Alex Cathline.
An unforced defensive error led to Leamington’s second goal after the restart in the delayed second half, which effectively ended any hope a comeback from the home side. It was also the last appearance of Jhai Dhillon who leaves the club to join Redditch United.
