Kendal Town missed out in the big relegation game after losing 3-1 to Glossop North End at home on Saturday.

The result, which leaves Kendal four points adrift from safety, was all brought about by a bad first half in which they went 3-0 down.

Kendal at least played better during the second half and even got a goal back. However, the damage had already been done by the first half performance.

Glossop were impressive during the first half and were too strong for Kendal, capitalising on Kendal's mistakes.

Glossop's third goal was a stunning effort from 25 yards which dipped into the net, From that poiint it was pretty much mission impossible for Kendal to win the game.

Kendal could have collapsed during the second half. However, credit should be given to the team for battling on and giving themselves a chance.

The performance was so much better than the first half and when Kendal got a goal back they had all the momentum.

However, they had given themselves too much too do after the first half and Glossop saw out the second halfe.

Kendal remain in trouble, with the gap now back to four points, although they do have a game in hand. They are scheduled to play host to Kidsgrove Athletic on Tuesday night before travelling to play Colne on Saturday.

The team gave a debut to former Doncaster Rovers Under 18 player Jordan Tucker, who played really well and could be a pivotal part of the team moving forward.

Kendal can still get out of trouble - they are not too far adrift. However, the importance of the remaining games is there for all to see.
