Gainsborough succumbed to high flying Solihull on Saturday as they fired in six goals at the Martin and Co Arena. The Blues pulled one back through a superb Liam Davis acrobatic effort but could not match the league leaders.
Gainsborough moved up to tenth in the league thanks to a Darryn Stamp header. The veteran fired home in the 55th minute to get the Blues back to winning ways at the Martin and Co Arena. The big news pre kick off was a name on the substitutes bench as Adam Quinn had his name on the teamsheet for the first time this year after recovering from a hernia operation.
A resilient Trinity rearguard action was enough to see off a spirited second half Corby Town fight back after a quick fire double on the stroke of half time separated the sides at the break. A Greg Mills penalty reduced the areas on 67 minutes, after Simon Russell had opened the scoring two minutes before the break. Liam Davis adding the second in added time at the end of the half - but the home side were unable to find the equaliser, as Trinity returned to Lincolnshire with the three points in the bag.
Gainsborough Trinity returned from their visit to Staffordshire with all three points following a fantastic away performance that saw the side record their first double of the season; having defeated the Pitmen 3-1 on the Northolme earlier this year. Goals from Simon Russell and a first of the season for Jake Picton were the difference, though if truth be told, Trinity could have had more; as they created plenty, both in open play and from set pieces where the Blues resplendent, in their luminous volt away kit, looked a constant threat on the attack.
Gainsborough could not manage to extend their unbeaten run as Bradford claimed all three points thanks to a first half strike. Chib Chilaka poked home from a corner as Avenue took advantage of their dominance in the first period. Darryn Stamp came closest in the second half for the Blues when he had a header cleared off the line.
An end to end game at the Martin & Co Arena, littered with chances for both teams, ended with Gainsborough Trinity and AFC Telford United sharing the spoils in front of 404 supporters on the Northolme. With Trinity boss, Steve Housham making three enforced changes to the team that lost to AFC Fylde last weekend, Craig Reid and Courtney Wildin made their debuts, replacing the suspended duo of Nathan Jarman and Stephen Brogan respectively. Marc Newsham was also recalled to the starting line up as Trinity adjusted to life without Anthony Wilson, the former Ferriby man who chose to hang up his boots last week.
