FOOTBALL - 10-man Valley come from behind to beat Histon

Rugby Editorial 22nd Nov, 2022   0

JORDAN Wilson scored a second-half winner as 10-man Rugby Town beat Histon 2-1 in a come from behind victory.

Wilson grabbed the winner on the hour mark after David Kolodynski had hauled Valley level just before the break following Luke English’s first-half dismissal at Bridge Road.

The result means Rugby remain four points clear at the top of the United Counties League Premier Division South table.

And the visitors were on top for much of the first period until a handball against Rugby’s English saw the Valley defender shown a straight red card and Histon awarded a penalty.

Max York duly converted the resulting penalty on 39 minutes to put the home side ahead against the run of play.

However, Histon’s lead would last just four minutes when Kolodynski drilled a low effort into the net after Wilson’s initial shot had been saved.

And Valley completed the comeback on the hour mark as Wilson held off his man to head home from six yards out from Ryan Seal’s excellent free-kick.

Rugby are next in action away at Eynesbury Rovers on Saturday, November 26 with kick-off at 3pm at Alfred Hall Memorial Ground.
