AFC Rushden & Diamonds v Bromsgrove Sporting

Andy Peaks - AFC Rushden & Diamonds

Offered few excuses as he delivered a damning verdict on AFC Rushden & Diamonds’ humiliating 8-2 defeat at the hands of Bromsgrove Sporting at Hayden Road.

An entertaining first half saw goals from Ryan Dove and Jack Bowen twice bring Diamonds back level before Michael Taylor’s second of the game put the visitors 3-2 up.

And Diamonds’ task was made harder when Zack Reynolds was sent-off just before half-time.

They were left with a mountain to climb when Jack Ashton also saw red for a lunge on 57 minutes and after Nathan Hayward had made it 4-2 to the visitors, Diamonds capitulated in the final 10 minutes, conceding four more goals with Taylor hitting half of his team’s final tally.

Plenty of goals, plenty of passion and an amazing score-line, listen to his post-match reflections after a poor showing last weekend.
