The Villagers fell to a frustrating defeat on Bank Holiday Monday, as they fell narrowly to an unbeaten West Didsbury & Chorlton side at a sun drenched Offside Trust Stadium.
James Cotton's first time finish in the first half was enough to give the visitors all three points as we struggled to create many chances against a strong and resolute West side.
We suffered a blow when front man Luke Wilson-Jones was forced out of the starting XI after picking up a injury in the warm up with Lee Vaughan stepping into the starting line up.
Both sides had chances early on with both keepers called into action before the opening and match winning goal came after 22 minutes with Cotton applying the finish after some hesitant defending.
During the second half we struggled to create many openings as the visitors held firm and we were reduced to ten men deep into injury time with Leon Wright seeing red for what the ref called persistent fouling.
