Ten-man Consett end their losing streak with a hard-fought point against Newton Aycliffe

Consett brought their three-game losing streak to an end tonight, but had to settle for a point from a 1-1 draw v Newton Aycliffe after playing the last part of the game with only 10 men.

Manager Tony Fawcett rang the changes, making four changes to the side which had lost in disappointing fashion at Ossett United on Saturday.

It meant full debuts for Jake Jensen and Dominic Curl, a first start of the season for Kieren Aplin and a first appearance since October for Ben Milburn as he returned from injury.

There were very few chances in a first half which saw the visitors dominate possession but create little, and half-time was reached with the score at 0-0.

Consett started the second half in much more positive fashion. Jensen had missed a couple of headers and Aycliffe keeper James Winter did well to deny Kaleb Young before the Steelmen opened the scoring in the 60th minute.

Jake Orrell swung in a delightful free-kick from the right which Jensen only just failed to connect with, but Arjun Purewal, running in behind him, kneed it home from a few yards to make it 1-0.

Orrell went close to make it two when his shot from an acute angle was tipped over by Winter, only for the referee to award a goal kick.

Then the game swung the visitors’ way on 66 minutes when Jack Gibbons was dismissed after being shown a second yellow card for kicking the ball away.

Aycliffe began to dominate again, and they got an equaliser on 70 minutes when Liam Jarvie’s shot was too hot for keeper James Anderson to handle and the loose ball rebounded in off the unfortunate Dan Capewell for an own goal.

Aycliffe thought they had snatched a winner in the 83rd minute when Ethan Wood scored direct from a corner, but the ‘goal’ was disallowed for a foul on the keeper.

Then Consett sub Charlie Watt had a chance of grabbing the glory when he burst through the middle with five minutes left, but a superb foot in denied him at the expense of a corner.

A draw was probably a fair result based on chances, and it left Consett 9th and Aycliffe 7th – the same positions they occupied before the game.

Consett lose to Dunston but feel aggrieved after key penalty decision goes against them

Consett dropped out of the play-off places on goal difference after being beaten 2-0 at home today by nearest neighbours Dunston in front of the highest Belle View attendance this season.

But the Steelmen – who were missing key men Ben Ramsey and Arjun Purewal – were left feeling hard done by after being denied what looked like a stonewall penalty when the game was still goalless.

Zak Atkinson, Wil Shaw and Kaleb Young all had chances for Consett in the first half, but none of them could test old boy Dan Staples in the Dunston goal.

At the other end, James Anderson stood up well to save from Dunston No 9 Jack Maskell, and midfielder David Robinson hit the post with a free header from Chris McDonald’s cross.

Consett’s best chance of an even half came on 38 minutes, when Jake Orrell threatened to slalom through the whole Dunston defence, but was denied by a superb tackle by Josh King.

It remained goalless at half-time, and the second half was more of the same, with both sides making and squandering chances in front of the season’s best crowd of 433.

There was a crucial moment in the 66th minute when Consett had a strong penalty appeal for a handball by McDonald waved away by the referee.

Five minutes later the visitors took the lead when Dale Pearson – one of five ex-Consett players in the full-strength Dunston side – broke down the left and crossed for David Robinson to score from close range.

Consett pressed hard for an equaliser, but were caught on the break five minutes into added time when David Robinson finished from out wide on the left, catching Anderson out of his goal after the keeper went up for a last-gasp corner, pictured top.

Consett crash out of the Durham Challenge Cup despite dominating at bogey ground West Auckland

Consett exited the Durham Challenge Cup at the quarter-final stage tonight after yet another defeat at their bogey ground, West Auckland.

Tony Fawcett’s side dominated large parts of the game against their former Northern League rivals, and created many more chances than their hosts, but somehow lost 2-0.

It means the Steelmen’s miserable recent record at Darlington Road continues, with just one win in our last 11 visits since a 3-2 extra time victory in the county cup in 2011-12.

Consett had enough chances to win two games, but some less-than-clinical finishing, good saves by West goalkeeper Nick Liversedge and no-nonsense defending by a back four superbly marshalled by Gary Brown meant they headed back down the A68 disappointed yet again.

Liversedge was by far the busier keeper, saving from Jack Gibbons and Zak Atkinson inside the first five minutes as Consett, kicking up the slope, took the game to their hosts.

But on 15 minutes they found themselves trailing when a corner was half-cleared to the edge of the box and Josh Scott volleyed home to make it 1-0.

Liversedge saved well from Kaleb Young’s well-struck volley, Ryan McKinnon sent a close-range effort over the bar and Wil Shaw’s goalbound effort was deflected wide by a teammate on the ground as Consett hammered on the door in search of an equaliser.

Their best chance came a minute before half-time when Gibbons ran on to a flick-on from James Anderson’s kick, but Liversedge was off his line quickly to smother his shot.

The interval arrived with West somehow leading 1-0, and the second half continued in the same vein, with Liversedge tipping over an effort from Ben Ramsey which looked destined for the top corner.

Consett had a strong penalty appeal for a clumsy challenge on Shaw turned down, and Jake Orrell sent a free-kick just over the bar as the visitors continued to press.

But they were hit by a sucker punch in the 67th minute when James Harrison set up former Consett midfielder Lee Hume, who found the bottom corner from just inside the box to make it 2-0.

Atkinson headed over from a superb Josh Baggs cross when he seemed certain to score, and Scott Fenwick hit the outside of the post from 20 yards after cutting in from the left flank as Consett continued to make chances.

When the final whistle left Consett couldn’t quite believe they had lost, but it was one of those nights when the ball just wouldn’t go in, and they are left to concentrate on their pursuit of a place in the NPL play-offs…

Consett go third after beating fellow play-off hopefuls Carlton Town

Consett are third in the NPL Division One East after a 2-1 win over fellow play-off hopefuls Carlton Town at a chilly Belle View Stadium today.

There was little to choose between the two sides in the first half, though Consett were grateful to keeper James Anderson for a good save from David Adegbola just before the break to keep the scores level.

The Steelmen took the lead on 59 minutes through Scott Fenwick, who volleyed home on the half-turn from Kaleb Young’s cross from the right.

Wil Shaw and Zak Atkinson missed chances to increase the lead, but Jack Gibbons made it 2-0 in the 80th minute to give Consett some breathing space.

Carlton pulled a goal back in added time through Zac Hill, but Tony Fawcett’s side saw out the game to claim three excellent points.

There was drama after the final whistle when Carlton striker Lamin Manneh was sent off for using foul and abusive language towards the match officials.

Consett take the lead away at league leaders Belper Town but come home empty-handed

Consett pushed league leaders Belper all the way at the Raygar Stadium today but came home with nothing to show for their efforts, after losing 2-1.

Despite being without the injured Matty Slocombe, suspended Ben Ramsey and unavailable Jake Orrell, they put in a good performance against hosts who were playing a division higher last season.

There was little to choose between the teams in a first half of very few chances, and it was no surprise when the game remained goalless at half-time.

The second half saw Consett take the game to their opponents, and they were rewarded when they took the lead in the 61st minute, when Kaleb Young threaded a pass through to Wil Shaw, who finished from 10 yards, pictured below.

Belper centre-back Kieran Walker spent the afternoon launching enormous throw-ins into the Consett box, but the visiting defence coped with everything that was thrown at them.

That all changed in the 74th minute, when the Steelmen’s defence failed to deal with the threat for only the second time in the game, and Kevin Bastos, the league’s top scorer, nipped in to nod home the equaliser from the flick-on.

Four minutes later the home team got what turned out to be the winner. Consett cleared their lines from a corner, and James Cadman sent the ball back into the danger area from 30 yards.

The flight of the ball seemed to deceive Consett keeper James Anderson, and what looked a speculative effort at best ended up in the top corner.

Manager Tony Fawcett threw on another forward, Scott Fenwick, for the last 10 minutes as his side sought a way back into a game they’d looked in control of, but the remaining time and five added minutes passed without the Steelmen managing to conjure an equaliser.
