Top of the table Rushall had a bumpy ride against Droitwich. On a rare Saturday off, I took advantage to see this Midland U21 game.
I have had a soft spot for Spa since my days living in Worcester when I would watch the constant strugglers lose each week, things seem a little brighter for them now days . Droitwich were fourth in the league at the start of the day.
Rushall in the gold kit took the lead on 12 minutes scoring from the corner of the box. They were 2 0 up on 22 minutes, shooting from a tight angle, the keeper palmed the ball into his own net. On the stroke of half time, Droitwich were back in the game , half volleying beyond the keeper from 7 yards.
Just into the second half, Droitwich pulled level heading in a right wing cross into the top corner. Droitwich liked to foul though and were ahead from the penalty spot before adding a late goal to seal the win.
