The Reserves faced a tough trip to title favourites Desborough Town on Saturday, although it was still looking good as we approached the break until a double strike from the prolific Brian Farrell on 43 and 45 minutes gave the second half a very different outlook. Shad Reza scored for the third game running to reduce the deficit after 56 minutes, but it was restored by Deandre Blake two minutes later. Boyd Lyons added a fourth on 77 and Farrell mirrored his ending to the first half with another quick-fire double as the game went into stoppage time. Incidentally the vastly experienced Farrell has now scored eleven goals in the first four games of the season and has already bagged three hat-tricks.
