A red card for each team had less impact on the result than strong wind at the Weaver Stadium as a gust forced Frickley keeper Ben Simpson in to a mistake leading to Ben Deegan’s winner.
From word go it looked like the Dabbers had a plan to stop tricky Frickley winger James Ghaichem who won two penalties in the reverse fixture.
