It was a frustrating day for Nomads yesterday in a 3-3 away draw with Ellesmere Rangers.

It was the home team who started the quickest and went ahead after 2 mins, however the lead didn’t last long and Nomads drew level as Wilf Riley scored from inside the box at the second attempt. After a scrappy 10 minutes or so it was Nomads that took control and dominated possession but without managing to finish any of the chances created and Ellesmere also unable to make the most of the opportunities they had

Ellesmere once again started quickly in the second half and could have scored twice in the opening minutes but again were unable to finish. Nomads took heart from this and grew into the game. Kyle Foley continued his goal scoring form to put Nomads ahead and it looked like Nomads had secured all 3 points when Riley got his second and Nomads third.

Ellesmere however had other plans and with 15 minutes remaining pulled one back from substitute Steven Hole. This spurred on the home side and they secured a draw with the goal of the game. A cross into the box found Hole in space again and he volleyed past Alex Fowell to tie the game

Nomads tried to press forward again but neither side was able to get the winner and it finished a point apiece.

Despite the late disappointment however, manager Jake Davies believes the squad is heading in the right direction and had this to say:

Sometimes you don’t get what you deserve, our @CheadleNomads have been improving week to week, dominating games and putting teams under sustained pressure. We’ve come a long way and I’m so pleased for all of them. The next 2/3’s of the season are going to be very interesting ⚽️”
