Defeat leaves Carlton Town hovering above drop zone


Carlton Town once again created chances but were unable to follow up their excellent win over Market Drayton in midweek as they went down 1-0 to Leek Town with that man Tim Grice again scoring against the Millers, his 99th goal for the club.

Carlton this week lost Chris Spencer who has signed for relegation rivals Loughborough Dynamos who fought out a 2-2 draw with Spalding, while Goole went down 2-1 to Gresley leaving Carlton just outside the drop zone, although they do have 3 games in hand on The Millers.

Striker Antonio Wedderburn meanwhile has rejoined the club from Belper Town and The Millers could certainly do with someone who can put the ball in the net given their recent results.

Grice could have bagged his 100th goal but was denied by a goal line clearance and the crossbar after an amazing effort late on.

The relegation battle looks like going down to the wire with twists and turns and even Sheffield FC who went down 4-0 to Chasetown and Daventry with their own financial issues could get sucked in, but right now it looks like any two from Tividale, Loughborough, Goole and Carlton and Carlton will face one of their toughest games of the season next weekend with Shaw Lane Aquaforce visiting Stoke Lane on the back of thrashing Romulus 5-1.

They are indeed still an outside bet for the title with 7 games in hand on the leaders Stafford Rangers but would have to win all those games to get within 2 points of the league leaders.
