Swanwick were beaten 4-0 by Hucknall Rolls Leisure as their goal drought continued.

The match was played in blustery conditions with the Swans having the wind on their backs for the first-half, but they struggled to keep the home side penned in.

The game’s opener came via a set piece, with Hucknall whipping in a good corner. Richard Harrison managed to find himself some space in the box and met the ball full on.

With the home side creating more chances the game could have be out of sight early if it wasn’t for the good work of Adam Jablonski, making some fine fingertip saves.

Guy Wilding had Swanwick’s best chance of the match, but was unfortunate enough to be denied twice, with a solid double save from the Hucknall keeper.

The first half petered out with both management teams trying to figure out the best style of play to suit the gusty conditions.

The second half saw the home side score three further goals and the visitors fail to find the net, something that Swanwick will need to address in midweek training.

Hucknall scored a second via the boot of James Duncan from distance, after a cleared corner fell to his feet at the 20 yard mark.

Hucknall’s Jack Allen was introduced to the fray and was to claim a brace with back to back goals.

Both players and staff will have to go back to the drawing board before next week’s home fixture against Linby, however, the Swans are a formidable force at Highfield Road.
