ILKLEY Town’s good form continued with a 4-1 win against Field AFC at Ben Rhydding on Saturday.

The game started in controversial fashion with Ilkley having to change to their red away strip on a ruling from the league which caused much disquiet amongst the home faithful.

Field took the lead in the first half and the open game was competitive throughout as both missed good chances.

It took Ilkley until the second half to equalise when Toby Harris smashed home a through ball.

The match was in the balance but turned when Field’s centre half McCready received a straight red card and was sent off for hauling down Harris when he was through on goal.

Richard Bull then strode forward from left back and nestled his shot into the corner of the goal.

From this point on, Ilkley were in control and scored two more goals first through Matt Whitehead and then Harris.

Overall this was a strong performance from the Ilkley lads against an energetic Field team.

Ilkley Town assistant manager Sam Dexter, who was in charge for the game, said: “I am really pleased for the lads. It was tough today. Field have beaten us twice this season so it was important to get that straight today. The lads showed a lot of character to come back from being behind. We sorted out a few things at half-time and the boys pushed on to get a great win.”

This Saturday Town play second in the league Beeston on the 4G pitch at Ben Rhydding. Kick-off is at 2.30pm.
