KENDAL Town’s defeat streak has unfortunately stretched to thirteen matches in a row after their match against Ramsbottom United.

The Mintcakes desperate to break the losing run which stretches back to January, played better than in their previous away game at Market Drayton Town.

However, mistakes cost the team another match, while their struggles in front of goal continued against a Ramsbottom United side who have also had problems finishing their attacks with a goal.

Kendal made a confident start forcing a number of saves out of Ramsbottom United shot stopper Tom Stewart.

However, on the 43rd minutes Ramsbottom opened the scoring after Domaine Rouse capitalised on a mistake by Darren Nightingale before dispatching a right foot shot past James McClenaghan.

Ramsbottom United came back out in the second half with more confidence before Rouse scored his second on 50 minutes after he latched onto a through ball before rounding the keeper and slotting the ball into the net.

The second goal proved to be the crucial moment as Kendal struggled to impose themselves while Ramsbottom United started to take control.

The hosts could have scored more most notably through John Murphy, while Godwin Abadaki unsettled Kendal’s defence while firing the ball over the bar when through on goal.

Kendal tried to get into the game but were met with a solid home team defence as the game drifted away from the Mintcakes who’s losing run continues.

However, Kendal now have two games over Easter where they are home to 1874 Northwich on Saturday before travelling to play Workington Reds on Easter Monday in the Cumbrian Derby, where Workington need a win as they look to win the league.
