Last Minute Penalty denies The Boro


Controversial Penalty decision costs boro dear as Prescot Cables grab a point.

By Adam Harrison

Prescot Cables netted a 94th minute equaliser from the spot to share the points with Jon Macken’s Radcliffe FC in a tight affair at Valerie Park.
Louis Myers put the Boro ahead midway through the second half after a mistake from a Cables defender let in Ben Wharton.

The Boro looked to have all three points in the bag but for a last-minute penalty for handball. MJ Monaghan stepped up and calmly slotted home for the men in yellow.

Macken’s men are now three games without a win and now sit third in the table.

The game took a while to spring into life with both sides trying to grab a foothold on the difficult surface at Valerie Park.
The Cables forced a brilliant save from Ollie Martin on 28 minutes after a dangerous counter attack.

Tunde Owolabi caused The Pesky Bulls some problems when deployed out on the wing. He played a fantastic ball into the box after some great build up play from the Boro but nothing came of it.

Ollie Martin produced another strong save after a dangerous cross into the box just before half time as the honours were even after the first period.
The Boro started the second half brightly, Matt Crothers launched a shot towards goal but it was easily collected by Taylor in the Cables goal.
Jack Lenehan wasted a good chance to put the home side ahead on 52 minutes as he blazed wide after some good play from The Pesky Bulls.
The Cables very nearly took the lead on 62’ minutes but for another great save from Martin in the Boro goal.
Substitute Shelton Payne had a golden opportunity to head over the goalkeeper but he recovered well and collect the ball.

Just two minutes later The Boro had the lead through Louis Myers. Ben Wharton played an excellent ball across the box and Myers slotted come.
Crothers had a chance to double the Boro’s lead but his shot went narrowly wide of the Prescot goal.

Drama at the end of the game as the home side were awarded a dubious penalty after the ball hit the hand of Mason Fallon from close range in the box.

MJ Monaghan calmly slotted home from the spot to earn his side a point.

The Boro are now three games without a win and now face Kendal Town at the Neuven on Saturday.
