The New Manor Ground

14 June 2006

Attendance: 2,245

Referee:

Colin Calderwood fielded a different starting eleven for each half in his first match in charge as Forest manager. This gave fresh starts to forgotten men such as James, Harris, Padula and Eaden.

Forest started well and were 3-0 up after only 13 mins. The opener came from the now svelte like Kris Commons with a neatly taken half volley just inside the box. Next up KC turned provider as his corner was met by Neill Harris, who rose above everyone to head the ball home. The goal of the game came after only 13 mins. Lester and Harris played some neat football that saw James run free. James played a nice one two with Lester that saw the former Walsall man calmly push the ball under the keeper. Forest continued to dominate the game, going close on several occasions, without any real threat from the home side.

The half time whistle came and it is at this point that i should mention what a very friendly and hospitable place the Manor is. A very pleasant social club selling very reasonably priced fayre.

The second half got underway with a new starting eleven for the reds, they continued in the same way as the first half team without finding the net. Bastians came close and Tyson was looking dangerous whenever he had the ball. The closest Ilkeston came to scoring was when a shot went wide of the post, but it wasn't enough to worry Gamble. Forest had to wait until the 81st min to add to the score. Bastians fed the ball over the Ilkeston defence which Tyson quickly ran onto, good control saw him lob the ball over the advancing keeper and into the net. If Ilkeston thought things were not going there way, this was confirmed in the 87th min when a viscious Tyson shot was deflected into the net off a defender.

5-0 to Forest and a good run out for all 22 players.
