Barnoldswick Town 4

Burscough 2

BARNOLDSWICK Town got their second win in a row after putting four goals past strugglers Burscough at Silentnight Stadium on Saturday.

Town played well at the start, but against the run of play in the fourth minute Conor Christiansen put the visitors 1-0 up.

Barlick continued to press Burscough, and one of the home side's half chances came courtesy of late tackle that gave Town a free-kick in a dangerous area.

However, when Alex Ralph whipped in the cross, no-one got on the end of it and ball went out for a goal-kick.

After great tackle by George Skocki halted a Burscough attack, James Crorken slid the ball in to Jake McEneaney, who crossed into the box, but the move was stopped when Burscough put the ball out for a corner.

Joe Noblet then had a shot that was skied over the bar before a McEneaney cross set up Ric Seear, who shot to the left-hand corner was saved by keeper David Jones.

Shortly after, Jones, saved another low Seear strike.

Alex Ralph also missed a Barlick shot at goal before he was on target with the equaliser two minutes into extra time.

He poked home a cross by Seear as the two teams went into the break tied at 1-1.

Town had a great start to second half after McEneaney made it 2-1 after a brilliant run into the box on 47 minutes.

Barlick keeper Jack Little was then called into action and had to make a great save to keep Town in the lead.

But it wasn't before Seear got on the scoresheet when dispatched a cross to put Town 3-1 up in the 53rd minute.

Burscough's cause wasn't helped when they went down to 10 men following a red card.

With a man advantage, Town made the visitors pay when Joe Noblet put Barlick 4-1 up.

Against the run of play, Burscough got one back when Conor Ready scored in the 76th minute to make it 4-2.

* Barnoldswick Town also got a midweek win last Tuesday when they beat Winsford United 2-1 at Silentnight Stadium.

Ryan Shenton put Town 2-1 up in the 55th minute before Ric Seear made it 2-0 on 75 minutes.

Steve Jenyons got one back for Winsford in the 77th minute but Barlick held on for the win.
