Just as in the first-half, Borough scored not long after kick-off. In the wet conditions, the opposition goalkeeper saw a save from a B O Reilly shot bounce off the crossbar with J Turton on hand to score the rebound.
As Sileby Town looked to respond, skipper N Whittam cleared the ball of his own goal line. In a tactical change, C Cook replaced B O Reilly. And shortly after, B West extended Boroughs lead with a nice turn and shot from a cross by J Turton.
With the game slipping away, the visitors grew in frustration, leading to an increase in fiery challenges which left the referee no choice but to issue more yellow cards.
As Rugby Borough looked to close out the game, T Bishop replaced D Bolton for his Borough debut, and G Webster replaced B West.
However, not to be silenced, Sileby pulled a goal back from a goalmouth scramble following a lofted corner ball.
But not long after, the visitors were reduced to ten men in the final moments of the game, leaving the home team to finish the game with a player advantage. Final Score: 3-1 to Rugby Borough FC.
