Miserable day in front of goal for Rugby Club

WHITBY RFC endured another miserable day in front of goal, that capped with some poor defending allowed Cayton to leave with the three points.

The result leaves the Whitby side with an uphill task to finish in the promotion spots this season after their second defeat in as many games.

Whitby started well and created a few openings but with an inspired keeper and some poor decision making, it was the away side who took the lead when Steele failed to cut out a long ball forward and the home striker rounded Fish and tapped in on 30 minutes.

This was how it remained at the break as Club missed a couple more chances and Fish kept the home side in the game with a couple of good saves.

The second half saw club finally level on 58 minutes when Brown’s chipped through ball found leading marksman Ben Watson who chested down before lashing past the seemingly unbeatable keeper for 1-1.

Cayton scored straight from the kick-off as a tame effort from 20 yards bobbled into the right hand corner of the net and on 69 minutes the game was slipping away as further poor defending allowed Cayton to make it 3-1.

Club changed to 3-4-3 in an effort to get something from a game they had dominated for long periods, but Craig’s effort was saved, Jones had an effort tipped over the bar and when Rhucroft struck sweetle from eight yards and saw the keeper somehow tip it wide.

It was just one of those days. Cayton added a fourth in the 89 minute to put the gloss on the result and take the three points.
