KENDAL TOWN have moved up in the table following their third win of the season.

The Cumbrian side has reached seventh place in the league after they triumphed over Pickering Town.

The Westmorland Gazette:

The game’s sole goal came courtesy of Hugo Rodriguez after just eight minutes of play.

The match was the third win of the season for Chris Humphreys’ team.

Rodriguez pounced on a loose ball in the penalty area before firing past the home team’s keeper.

His impressive play so early on was backed up by strong defence from his teammates for the rest of the game.

Rodriguez was playing his third game for Kendal since making his debut in the 1-0 winning effort against City of Liverpool.

Kendal Town’s defence was strong from beginning to end.

Morgan Bacon stood out as he made a number of good saves.

The Mintcakes had also created some glorious opportunities, most notably from a four on one break in the second half.

However, one goal proved to be enough as Kendal’s resurgence continues.

The Westmorland Gazette:

The Mintcakes made a solid start when Rodriguez struck past the keeper.

Pickering answered by applying pressure in the visitor’s half.

Morgan made a stunning save to deny Wayne Brooksby’s goal-bound free kick 33 minutes into the match.

Kendal had chances of their own throughout.

Rodriguez was on good form again as when he came close to scoring a few times after his first.

While missing the target after a couple of good crosses in the area, he kept the home team’s defence weary of him.

Jamie Hodgson and Ben Anderson caused problems for the opposition as well, thanks to their movements and speed.

Pickering pressed for the equaliser during the second half however Kendal held their defensive shape well with a solid team effort.

Despite trying to break through the Kendal team were too strong and organised.

Seydou Bamba’s play impressed, as did both Charlie Birch and Liam Lightfoot, alongside the whole team who worked hard as a unit.

Pickering nearly equalised when Jessop's effort rebounded off the post while Kendal should have made the game safe from a four on one break, however both sides missed the target.

The hosts had a penalty appeal turned down with just five minutes left when Brandon Morrison went down in the area.

Kendal though saw out the closing stages as they secured the win.

Kendal Town are scheduled to host Brighouse Town on Saturday in the FA Trophy.

This will be followed by a game against Ramsbottom United next Tuesday.
