Sean Hanley strikes begin and conclude Playford's fightback.

Byron Stretton went close with an early chance, his attempted lob was pushed up and away by the onrushing goalkeeper. But only moments later Trinity take the lead, breaking away and taking advantage Playford's high midfield.

The Playford midfield were starting to get some rhythm. Nice play found Broadhurst on the right and his cross was deep to the back post. Vince collected the ball, beat two players but his shot was saved and then cleared off the line.

After 20 minutes another nice build up results in a low cross from Vince on the left, his cross arrives too close to the 'keeper who catches despite close attention from Stretton.

Trinity break down the Playford left, the defence backs off allowing a shot that fortunately goes wide. It was probably covered by Sexton in the Playford goal. However it is another warning for Playford.

Lee Andrews crosses from the right, it is cleared but only as far as Barrett, but his long range effort goes over.

Trinity break again, but the danger seems over when Ewer takes possession of the ball. His back pass is under hit and intercepted. The striker makes no mistake past Sexton.

Two minutes later and Playford have the ball in the net. Good build up again and a cross from the left is met at the back post. But both Playford players are in an offside position.

Stretton completes a surging run across field and finds Vince on the left, his low cross is met by Hanley who steers the ball past the 'keeper. The goal comes just at the right time, with only three minutes of the half remaining. Playford's tails are up and although the defence is almost immediately caught 3-on-3, the danger is cleared by Bartlett. His clearance is picked up by Andrews, who plays Hanley in on , sadly his shot is not hard enough to trouble the 'keeper. Trinity go in at the break 2-1 ahead.

Andrews was proving busy in the Trinity half in the early period. He has shot that goes wide after finding himself with space in the box. Then he climbs highest to get his head to a corner butit goes just over.

A clearance comes forward and is flicked on by Broadhurst, Bartlett finds himself one-on-one with the 'keeper. He waits an uncomfortable amount of time before slipping a shot past the goalkeeper to level the scores.

A minute later, Andrews crosses for Bartlett who shoots just over.

On 65 minutes Godbold replaces Broadhurst and within two minutes is in the action. Stretton has a shot saved by the 'keeper and Godbold is on hand to knock in the rebound and give Playford the lead.

Jones replaces Andrews as Trinity start fighting back. Fortune smiles on Playford though, when a Trinity attacks breaks down, Ewer clears the ball to Hanley who does the rest. Collecting the ball half way inside the Trinity half, he played a quick one-two with Stretton, keeping the offside Bartlett out of the play, before running at the defence and shooting past the 'keeper. Stretton, whilst celebratingwith Hanley commented at least one of my passes made it back to you today

Despite the first half set-back Playford's extra quality comes through to take all three points, bringing them level with Chantry Phoenix at the top of the table.
