SATURDAY 24TH JANUARY 2015 - EVO-STIK DIVISION ONE NORTH
Northwich Victoria snatched victory from the jaws of defeat with two late goals in an exciting game at Hope Street. Cables led 2-1 with seven minutes of time remaining and were good value for their lead.
Cables Manager Neil Prince made just one change from the side which had started against New Mills two weeks ago, Tom Quinn replacing the suspended Ciaran Gibson in goal. Amongst the substitutes was Liam Hollett making a welcome return to the club. Northwich included Muhammad Ali at left back, and he certainly lived up to his name adding some punch to the Northwich attack down the left side.
Northwich kicked off playing towards the Hope Street End. There was an early scare for Cables when a long clearance by Northwich keeper Smith was picked up by Gary Burnett who rounded Quinn and steered the ball towards an empty net only for Dodd to clear off the line and Quinn collected the ball safely. Quinn was soon in action again flicking a fierce shot from Ali over the cross bar for a corner. From the corner Quinn made a reflex save blocking a shot from Roddy.
