The Bloods recorded their first win in the league since the August Bank Holiday weekend, in this early season six pointer at the Butcher's Arms

An early goal from Domaine Rouse and second half goals from Liam Caddick and Steve Lewis saw off Goole who had looked the better team at the break.

New signing Jamie Frost made his debut up front with Alex Salmon starting on the bench while it was a welcome start for Luke Daly sidelined for two months after his injury at Radcliffe.

Bloods should have gone ahead in the first four minutes with Sean Clancey finding himself in space on the left hand side of the box only to see his shot come back off the inside of the post and safety into Barford's arms.

Droylsden looked shaky at the back, defensive errors could easily have found them two down Martin-Wyatt should have capitalised after a back pass failed to reach James Coates and Ruhuneuka should have scored minutes later, his shot instead hitting the side netting.

Bloods took the lead on nineteen minutes, skipper Domaine Rouse's exquisite shot beating Barford after some good build up play down the right hand side

But Goole were level five minutes later when Shaquille Clarke brought down Martin-Wyatt in the box, the striker converting.

Goole would count themselves unlucky not to be ahead at the interval, full back Cooke seeing his header from a corner cannon off the cross bar while James Coates had to come to the rescue, locking Louis Kirk's shot after the Bloods defence had yet again given the ball away.

A more purposeful home team took control in the second half, Dominic Smith and Jamie Frost going close.

Alex Salmon came on for Luke Daly with half an hour to go and three minutes later, the Bloods took the lead Liam Caddick's thunderous shot from just inside the area giving Barford no chance.

Manager Dave Pace brought on Steve Lewis for Dominic Smith and was rewarded as the big striker hit the back of the net with his first touch

The third goal saw Goole's spirit deflated and the home side played some good football without creating too many scoring opportunities but it was three welcome points to the home team after a run that has seen some good performances without seeing the points in the league table.
