RAMSBOTTOM United kept up their 100 per cent league start at home with a 3-1 victory over Trafford on Friday night.

They made it four wins out of four at the Harry Williams Riverside Stadium in Evo-Stik North thanks to second-half goals from Kyle Brownhill and Max Hazeldine.

The two sides had gone into the break level at 1-1 after a 43rd-minute goal from Trafford's Scott Sephton cancelled out Jerome Wright's opener.

And manager Mark Fell was delighted with the way his side bounced back from conceding so late in the first half.

"It was another absolutely superb second half from us," he said, following on from Rammy's late show late in their previous match to beat Glossop North End.

"The lads' application was first rate and when you drill the game down into chances, Fearo (Rams goalkeeper Mike Fearon) has had to make no saves, yet (the Trafford stopper) Grant Shenton has had to keep them in it several times with some excellent goal keeping.

"It's a win against a very strong side, but our feet are firmly on the ground and while we will enjoy it, we'll be back in working hard to ensure we've prepared fully for Mossley away on Saturday."

Fell kept faith with the side that beat Glossop 4-2 and they made the brighter start, with Wright shooting wide after latching on to a superb pass from Brad Roscoe.

It was a sighter for Wright – Rammy's player of the month for August – and he quickly made amends in the 30th minute, stabbing home his sixth goal in seven appearances after ex Rams keeper Grant Shenton blocked his initial shot.

But Trafford, looking for their first league win of the season, pulled back level when Sephton shot past Fearon via a slight deflection.

Undaunted, the home side reclaimed the lead on 59 minutes when Kyle Brownhill's low cross found its way into the bottom corner. There was some debate whether Greg Daniels got a touch, but the goal was awarded to Brownhill after the club held an "internal inquiry".

Trafford battled to equalise for a second time but without seriously testing Fearon in the home goal.

And after Jamie Rother and Wright were denied by some fine saves from Shenton, Hazeldine eventually secured all three points with a diving header six minutes from time.

The victory sent the majority of the season's best 369-strong crowd home happy, and Fell called for a repeat attendance when they next return to the Riverside to take on Prescot Cables a week on Saturday.

"I'm delighted at the 350-plus crowd that was there to see a good game of football and I hope we can consistently get those numbers through the gate to support the lads," said the Rams boss.
