Lancaster City recorded their fourth straight home win on Tuesday night as they beat Marske United 2-0.

Both goals came in the first half and were scored by Rudy Misambo and Niall Cowperthwaite.

New signing Owen Robinson made his debut for the Dollies off the bench.

Nic Evangelinos, who was named player of the match, hit the woodwork six minutes in, with Charlie Bailey there to follow up on the rebound, but the flag went up for offside.

Lancaster’s opening goal came from a free kick. Sam Bailey delivered the ball towards the back stick and Rudy Misambo was there to head it in and get his first goal for the club.

City added a second within the first 25 minutes. Oliver Swan spilled the ball after attempting to collect it from an in-swinging free kick, and Niall Cowperthwaite seized on the error to tap it home.

Sam Waller did well to save Marske’s best chance of the half – Jason Kennedy was through one-on-one against the Lancaster number 1, but the latter came out on top.

Lancaster started the second half strongly with a few great chances to extend the lead to three goals. Nic Evangelinos couldn’t quite get the power he wanted on his shot and Swan saved it comfortably. Sam Bailey was put through one on one but Swan denied him.

Connor Smith’s effort for Marske rattled the bar in the visitors’ best attempt to halve the deficit.

They continued to push for a consolation, with Seasiders’ top scorer Adam Boyes coming close with a header just a fraction wide.

Mark Fell was happy with the team’s performance, and Rudy Misambo’s especially. “He’s a colossus in the air, and without having Teaguey (Andy Teague) you need to replace that.

“Rudy gives you that physical presence to take on an Adam Boyes type. He’s been excellent.”

He went on to agree with the verdict on the man of the match, saying “I thought Nic was probably the best player on the pitch for me, back to goal. He’s been very good for quite a while now.”

Lancaster play at home once again on Saturday (March 4) against Morpeth Town.
