THERE was disappointment at Ruskin as St Helens Town’s mini-revival came crashing to an end with a 6-2 defeat against an organised and effective Campion side.

It has taken Town a long time to get a settled back four, who have been the catalyst to the team’s new found confidence.

A couple of enforced changes to that line-up exposed Town’s fragility again as the Bradford-based visitors went ahead on the ninth minute courtesy of Nickey Boshell.

Town responded well and did not hang about with in-form Elliott Hughes finding an equaliser on the 12th minute.

Daniel Keane put the visitors back ahead on the 22nd minute, and although Campion’s distribution was crisper, Town looked dangerous on the break.

They equalised in the dying seconds of the first half thanks to a Dale Korie-Butler chip that left the Campion keeper stranded.

Unfortunately things unravelled in the second half after a goalkeeper mix up lead to Campion's third.

As Town opened up in search of valuable points, the well-drilled Campion side sensed blood, and the game ended 6-2 with all three points heading back over the Pennines.

Town’s next game is this Saturday, away to Atherton LR.
