Blyth Spartans 1 Redditch United 0

In a ‘competitive’ game, Blyth Spartans ran out 1-0 winners over Redditch United thanks to a Robert Dale penalty in injury time of the first half.

Blyth’s cause was not helped by playing nearly an hour of the match with only 10 men following a red card for Gary Brown, awarded for a high, reckless tackle. As this is Gary’s second red card of the season this will mean he misses the final three games of the season (Gainsborough Trinity, Southport and Burscough) as well as the opening game of next season.

More reaction will follow later.
