Albion 3 – 2 Rushden & Diamonds


A bit of cup respite this afternoon – I expect the Albion to hammer this conference team. Hopefully we can progress and get a plumb tie when the big boys come in for the third round draw. I’m busy tonight, so will miss bits of the game, so no scoring the performance – which is a joke itself as I have to listen in on Player! But who gives a shit? It’s only a blog after all! UP THE ALBION!

Dickinson scores in the third minute as I head out the door. I want a cricket score today. Rushden equalise on 14mins, then Nicky Forster bangs in his 11th goal of the season. Diamonds score again just before half-time, the return of Adam Virgo doesn’t seem to have improved the quality of our comedy defence.

Gary Hart makes his 400th appearance for the Albion off the bench, replacing Mcleod at right midfield, fantastic effort from OGH – a legend. My god we are shite, Rushden sound more likely to score. A return match beckons at…where the fuck is Rushden anyway? It’s on the blow, and Dickinson gets set up by Fozzy and BANG!!! we get a jammy goal against the run of play. Spawny gets Albion. Who are we  gonna get in round three – please, please, please – Manure or Chelski away. Night.

Albion Team (goalscorers in bold):

(4-4-2) Smith; Hoyte, Virgo, Elphick, El-Abd; Bennett, Crofts, Navarro (Dicker 60), McLeod (Hart 50) ; Forster, Dickinson (2)

Subs: Pelling (GK), Wright, Cox, Tunnicliffe, Hart, Dicker, C Davies.

    Think Gus might have learned a bit about some of the fringe players,was always going to be a bit of a banana skin game but we are through.
    next draw would like us away to MU lots of lessons to be learned and plenty of money to bank ……………….and you never know we might just surprise them
    wishful thinking?

    I think so mate! I’d like us to get an easy draw (non-leaguers or league two) because I’ll be home for the fourth round, then Man U will do just fine!!
