CSKA Results

A View to Kilworth Mods Renew Licence to Thrill

League Fixture
Date: Sunday 10 October 2021
Venue: Rawlins Stadium
Referee: Sammy McIlroy, Leics

CSKA continued their upturn in form this weekend as they swept aside North Kilworth, who failed to see the game out to the end.

 

Going into the fixture the squad list looked a lot stronger, as Chris McCafferty returned to full fitness after a month out, and fan-favourite defender Manni Rai made his first appearance for the side since January of last year. The home side also boasted a wealth of support as the reserves were in the stands for the match.

 

In the opening stages the visitors looked to intimidate with an aggressive start but Hiran Mistry set the example as he shrugged off a couple of heavy challenges.

CSKA rode the early aggression to take the lead after a loose through ball and a lost cause is chased down by Dave Payne. He pressured the onrushing goalkeeper Nathan Walters, who failed to collect cleanly, Payne was then brought down as he pounced on the loose ball. Chapman dispatched the penalty with aplomb. 1-0 to the Mods.

 

A sucker punch from the visitors a few minutes later as defender Gaz Walker put his body on the line to make a last-ditch clearance. The referee allowed the resulting throw to be taken as Walker received treatment off the pitch. Despite a good save from Augustus, North Kilworth tapped home the rebound to bring the game square.

 

Not long after came another blow as Walker was forced off through injury and Connor Williams replaced him.

 

Despite the setback CSKA played some neat football to keep control of the game. Hiran Mistry was proving a real nuisance down the left. One of his many crosses in to the back post was met by a defender who bundled the ball into their own net under pressure from Nathan Tate. 2-1. CSKA then went and made it 3-1 as Danny Chapman as Chapman turned inside the box and coolly finished for the second time in the game.

 

Early on in the second half there were signs of a Kilworth resurgence. Despite CSKA’s best efforts, a mistake and a deflected strike made it 3-2. The goal gave the visitors confidence as they threatened again over the next few minutes. The players could feel another goal in the game, and whoever got it the game would surely swing in their favour. A crucial moment for the Mods.

 

Support from the side lines helped the team find that extra gear. Tate caused endless problems as he burst through the midfield almost at will. Chapman then almost completed his hat-trick when a delicious cross from Sean Brown was headed over the bar. Then Adam Gent’s pinpoint delivery from a corner was headed home by Tate to make it 4-2 and restore the 2-goal cushion.

 

The game looked won but CSKA were in no mood to ease off North Kilworth. Parker, McCafferty and Capp were all introduced as substitutes to give the away side fresh legs and new problems to deal with.

 

Fed up with his marauding runs, Kilworth hauled down Tate inside the box to give CSKA their second penalty of the game. With Chapman off the pitch, McCafferty stepped up and converted the penalty, dragging it into the bottom left corner to make it 5-2. The Mods hit Kilworth for 6 in the 88th minute, when a quick throw from Dave Payne allowed McCafferty to turn inside the box and square the ball for Hiran Mistry to cap off a worthy performance with his first goal of the season at the back post.

 

At 6-2, the drama did not end there. Crushed, humiliated and well-beaten, North Kilworth’s Christian Dyke, already booked for dissent earlier in the game, took his top off and asked the game to be stopped. Dyke was then rightly shown a straight red for foul and abusive language towards the referee, which has no place in the game.

Dyke then instructed his teammates to walk off the pitch, leaving the referee no choice but to end the game at that point.

 

A bizarre end to what had been a strong display from CSKA, and probably the Mods’ best performance of the season. Nathan Tate was awarded Man of the Match for yet another outstanding display in midfield. With maximum points from the last two games and 9 goals scored, CSKA look to be back in firing form. What crisis?
