Albion 5-2 Leeview

Albion secured safety before the game kicked off today after Blackpool failed to win at Newmarket yesterday. In saying that Albion still had a job to do. A target was set 6 games ago of minimum 9 points from the remaining 6 which looked a lot considering Albions form throughout the season.

A beautiful morning in Dunderrow set the scene for a great start to the game from Albion who went 1-0 up through Tim with a fantastic finish. A lovely run finished with a left footer in to the top corner. Leeview came back in it when their striker took his time and belted one into the low left. Albion made it 2-1 through Rob Daly before the break with some trickery footwork and a lovely finish. Conan Dillon was dominating midfield with the aid of brother Ben, and any time a n attack was created by Japs or Noel on the wings both strikers looked like adding to the scoreline. 2-1 half time.

Albion went 3-1 up early in the second half when a cross went over Tim and Robs heads but Noely made it to the ball before the defender to head in to the net. Leeview made it 3-2 when a player found the net with a header from a corner. Albion were dominating all over the park at this stage and the goal came against the run of play. It was 4-2 soon after when James played Conan who play Rob, Rob sent a cross in which found Tim who’s close range header was too much for the keeper. An identical goal followed this time Darren sending the ball across to find Robs head.

A great finish to a poor season but it sees Albion remain a division 2 side after a very positive last 3rd of the league campaign.
