We thought this would be a hard game with Bornleee fightin for their lives to stay in the top flight---and for the forst 15 minutes they had several chances to take the lead az The Toon struggled to contain them!---Includin a penalty appeal which woz waved away by the ref!

This aall changed in the 19th minute when at the far end from where we were housed, when Livramento raced through to pass to Murphy who set up Isak, whos shot woz blocked---but Wilson woz waitin' in the wings to slot the baall home! 1-0 to us!


Wor lead woz doubled in the 35th minute when a Murphy cross foond Longstaff who hit a sweet right footed shot past Muric in the Bornley goal! 2-0to us!

Just 5 mins later it woz 3-0 when a Gordon pass foond Bruno, who finished  the move off with a great strike from inside the box! HT 3-0 to us! 

By this time there were quite a few empty claret and blue seats in the home sections az the threatened rain started to pour doon!

The 2nd half started off well when Gordon woz brought doon in the box for a certain penalty in the 51st minute.  Isak and Wilson both wanted to take the spot kick, but Isak won the day! Hiz poor shot to the left of the Bornley keeper woz easily saved however!

Just 4 mins later he made amends, when, from close in, he hooked the baall into the net to send the travellin faithful into raptures az more dejected home fans made for the exits!

The ecstatic Toon fans in complete contrast were singin:       "Europe again--Ole--Ole--Howay!"

That woz the last Toon goal of the game, but we could easily have scored more az Bornley floundered!

They did have a consulation goal in the 86th minute when slack defendin let on O'Shea, who heeded past Dubravka in The Toon goal!

By this time the home end behind that goal woz virtually empty and yoo could even make the letters oot in the seats! 'B  F  C'

With Forest winnin away at Sheff U 'The Hillbillies' looked doomed with just 2 games left!

This woz wor 5th win in seven games and NUFC have now scored 95 goals in aall compititions!

A 4-1 win lifts us up to 6th place in the table 2 points above Moan U who divvint play til Munday!---and just 4 points behind Sporz in 5th, who play The Livebirds away this afternooon!----Iz 5th place possible and a gaurenteed Europa Leegue place, with just 3 games to play?----We shall soon find oot! 

Attendance: 21,781 (2,300 jubilant Toon fans!)⬇️
