Stretford Paddock now have back to back victories having beating Rochdalians FC 2-1 on the weekend in what was a hotly contested game with both teams having their fair amount of opportunities, the hosts were big favourites coming in, with both teams being at opposite sides of the table but the game proved to be much more even than anticipated. Paddock went into the break at half time 1-0 down too conceding from a great looping header leaving the keeper with no chance and just like last week the lads reacted accordingly second half, turning the game around and actually capitalising on chances created, similar chances that alluded the hosts in the first half.

Kieron Molloy was a threat and a bright spark all day, continuing his great goal scoring form with his 4th goal in 5 games; he was an absolute danger all game. With the man of the moment Josh Smith leaping highest to head home for the winner from a set piece registering his 6th goal in 5 games as he continues to light the league up for Paddock. The victory meant Paddock continued to keep the pressure on the top team De La Salle where they seem primed to pounce on any slip ups from the Salford side. It will be interesting to see whether they can continue this good run of form.
