Louth fall to league leaders
and live on Freeview channel 276
The result saw Louth’s inconsistent form continue, with their last four league wins all having been followed by a defeat in the following game, leaving them 11th in the NCEL Division One standings, seven points off the play-off places.
Jordan Smith saw an early shot saved by the home keeper in a first-half of very few openings and little quality from either side.
Harry Crawford then denied Wombwell a goal with a great block on the line early in the second-half, then Alex Lait had to be alert to pull off a fine stop on the hour mark.
But the home side then took the lead on 64 minutes when Harley Wilson produced a great strike from outside the penalty area to beat Lait and put his side in front.
Bailey Wright saw a shot saved as Louth went after an equaliser, but Wombwell got a second when Brad Kerr nipped in at the back post to score.
Brodie Cooper then made sure of the points with a third Wombwell goal on 89 minutes, with Smith bundling the ball home late on following a throw in for Louth to secure a consolation goal.
Louth were then back in action on Tuesday night, after this week’s Leader went to press, with a trip to Retford FC.
They’ll then have a weekend free of any action before a Lincolnshire Senior Trophy trip to Lincoln United on Tuesday, October 17.
