MATCH REPORT: Carlton Town 0 – Loughborough Dynamo 2

Carlton Town
A game of two halves was clouded by a controversial red card for Millers’ Riece Bertram.
The game opened with several chances for the away team, Josh Riley finding gaps in the Carlton defence, feeding Karl Demidh and Tolani Omotola. The latter opened the scoring in the 21st minute following a speedy break, slotting home into the right corner.
A 50/50 ball between Bertram and Demidh which the Millers midfielder reached first, saw the away striker go to ground writhing in pain. After the away team surrounded the referee, he pulled out a red card with many disagreeing with the dismissal which may see appeal.
The second half was then tough for the home side down to ten men, but half time substitute Mamoke Akaunu created chance after chance for the Millers. After withstanding the pressure, Dynamo settled and grabbed a second in the 76th minute to seal three points on the road.
They had chances late on to make it three but the home defence saw out the dying minutes. A tough result to take in a game that many have labelled: ‘what if?’
