Town in tip-top form at landmark ground
The Robins certainly picked an appropriate venue to put in their best performance of the season.
Ian Dring’s men travelled to the world’s oldest ground and came away with an emphatic victory over Hallam to help them claw another three points closer to the teams above them.
Jack Wooley grabbed a brace whilst debutant Sean Dickinson got in on the act with a goal of his own, and Danny Gray continued his impressive form notching his third goal in the last two outings.
Hosts Hallam were the “in-form” side going into the match having won their last four games, but it took the Robins just 13 minutes to turn the form table upside down.
Wooley fired home after a Nathan Kamara cross found him unmarked. Town had threatened prior to that when a rasping shot came back off the upright.
Ian Dring’s men quickly settled into a rhythm and soon had the hosts panicking. furthermore.
Kamara and Dickinson were causing the South Yorkshire side all sorts of problems down the flanks, peppering the Hallam box with tempting crosses.
Their constant pressure was rewarded with a second goal on 25 minutes when Gray finished neatly after a clean race with two defenders.
Defensively, Dring has tightened the Robins rearguard with Danny Snaith and Josh O’Neill personifying the new-found approach.
In the second half Hallam pushed hard and put Selby under pressure but Mick Jones did a sterling job in marshalling the Robins’ backline.
The lead was stretched to three goals on 67 minutes when Dickinson’s shot was well saved but the ball fell to Wooley’s feet and he knocked in his second.
It was Wooley’s fourth goal in his last three outings.
The icing on the cake was added just four minutes later when brilliant wing play by Kamara saw him cross to the far post where Dickinson was on hand to smash in the fourth with a vicious shot.
Dring praised the performance saying: “It was a cracking win.
“We were really confident heading into the match but never did I think we would annihilate them like we did.
“We passed the ball well, scored some good goals and got a clean sheet so it’s been a really good outing.
“As long as we keep our work ethic high then I can’t see us being bottom for much longer.”
