Ilkeston tests await Town

Liam Moakes 8th Mar, 2018

PERSHORE Town will prepare for one of the toughest weeks of the league season on the back of an impressive midweek victory.

The Plums visit title-chasing Ilkeston Town on Saturday in Midland League Division One and then welcome the fourth-placed Robins to the King George V Stadium for the return fixture a week on Saturday.

Quentin Townsend’s side, who lie 14th, returned to action on Tuesday with a 3-0 victory at home to Bolehall Swifts.

Town had the perfect start to take a third-minute lead when Jack Downing nodded home from a Chris Bright cross.

Terrance Morton doubled the lead on 79 minutes, pouncing on a loose ball after Charlie Anagho-Ntamark’s effort had been blocked by keeper Lee Paintain, before substitute Alfie Bloomer sealed the points from man of the match Downing’s pass.
