FC United took to the field against Gainsborough Trinity knowing that a victory over the 21st placed team would cement their position in the top 5 of the league. But the reds ended up fighting a rearguard action against a team who came for a win with a performance that gave the lie to their lowly position. The visitors had the best of the early action with two decent goal attempts in the first fifteen, one of which was chipped over Belford by number ten Russell and hit the top of the crossbar. Tunde then had a good chance at the other end but former FC favourite Lloyd Allinson did well to push the shot out past the post. Linney’s volley from the resulting corner was a fine effort.
After a period of sustained pressure, Gainsborough took the lead. Kingsley threaded a good pass through to the lively Allott, who went one on one with Belford and slotted the ball into the right hand corner. The reds were level on the half hour though. Tunde was chopped down on the edge of the area. Curran’s free kick hit the wall and Buckley put it away. It didn’t take long for the Trinity to get back in front. Ross Hannah came on for the injured Dunn on 41 minutes and scored with his first touch. A scrappy goal and Belford could perhaps have done better. FC fans will remember Hannah scoring plenty of goals against us when he played for Matlock ten years ago.
The introduction of Donahue and Ennis shortly after the break gave the home side momentum and on seventy minutes, FC got back on level terms. That man Tunde made a strong run down the left beating the defender and his improbably placed shot almost from the byline saw Allinson well beaten. After this, the reds took hold of the game. Potts, Tunde, Donahue and Doyle all went close and then Ennis looked to have won it for the reds in injury time, but Allinson pulled off an excellent save. All in all a fair result against a resurgent Gainsborough side with a new manager who had signed five players in the week.

Man of the match Tunde. He made one, he scored one, what more could you ask of a striker?

Gainsborough report
New Gainsborough Trinity manager Curtis Woodhouse was frustrated but proud after his side claimed a precious point in his first league match in charge.

Trinity were twice ahead at FC United of Manchester, but needed a terrific late save by debutant keeper Lloyd Allinson — one of five new signings — to claim a point in their fight against relegation.

The result was a tonic ahead of this weekend’s FA Trophy clash at Tamworth away in FA Trophy — after a 4-0 Trophy win in Woodhoue’s first match at the helm.

“It was frustrating (not to win). The lads gave everything, put bodies on the line, and I am proud of them. We were running on fumes at the end,” he said.

“From the position we got ourselves into at half-time (leading 2-1) I am disappointed not to come away with three points.

“But as a starting point I couldn’t be happier. It’s a great building block, to go away and win 4-0 (the previous Tuesday) and then to come here to a good side and be disappointed not to come away with all three points.

“I asked the lads how they felt and everyone said disappointed. That’s good because that’s how I felt so we are all on the same page. Woodhouse has already strengthened his squad with five new faces.

Twenty-two year-old centre back Will Thornton, from Guiseley, has joined on an initial month loan deal, and winger Mitchell Dunn has come from Sheffield FC, where he had scored eight goals in 14 starts this season.

Another Guiseley player, keeper Allinson, has joined on dual registration forms.

Teenage central midfielder Billy Chadwick is on loan from Hull City, while all-action midfielder Michael Williams, who has signed from Sheffield FC, will miss the next two matches through suspension.

Dunn, Allinson, Thornton and Chadwick all started at FC United, where Trinity created the first chance and were very unlucky not to take the lead.

Simon Russell beat the offside trap and went one on one with Cameron Belford, only for his chip to hit the bar and Dunn to eventually fire wide from the loose ball.

The visitors got a deserved 21st minute breakthrough when a fine pass from right back Kingsley James found Gavin Allott, who knocked the ball past the keeper and then scored his fourth goal in two games.

But on the half-hour Jordan Buckley levelled after Trinity failed to clear a free kick.
There was another blow for the visitors when new signing Dunn went off injured in the 42nd minute.

But his replacement, former assistant manager Ross Hannah, quickly restored Trinity’s lead with his first touch 10 seconds after coming on.

In a scrappy second period Tunde Owolabi levelled for the home side 15 minutes from time and in injury-time new keeper Allinson made terrific stop to secure the precious point.

Talking about striker Allott, Woodhouse added: “You won’t get any better than Gav. I made him the captain and he is repaying me. He was outstanding, scored his goal and ran his socks off.”

“We have only been here for a week or 10 days so there is loads more work to do. But overall from the game I feel proud.”
