Louth Town returned from a series of postponements to record a crucial 1-0 win at Rossington Main on Saturday.

Despite not having played for nearly a month, the White Wolves won with some style on the day thanks to Paul Goodhan’s superb penalty on the stroke of half-time.

Louth were quick off the mark and enjoyed a good majority of the play despite Rossington`s smart defending.

However, Louth`s goal came when the referee had no hesitation in pointing to the spot and Paul Goodhand superbly converted the penalty.

Manager Daryl Clare played from the start and in the 55th minute, Andrew Willoughby came on for Jamie Coulson who had played a big part in the game.

Willoughby added a fresh spirit to the team and helped in several attacks, with Louth pressing for the all important second.

It never came but Town claimed all three points but now find themselves ninth in the NCEL Division One table, but with plenty of games left to play.

Town host Shirebrook Town at Park Avenue on Saturday (3pm) before a visit to Bottesford and a local derby at Cleethorpes Town.
