Ferriby’s recent dip in form continued on Saturday when they lost 5-1 away at Sutton United. Ferriby made one change to the starting line up after the 4-1 defeat at home to Solihull Moors the previous week, with Sam Cosgrove coming into the starting 11, replacing Connor Oliver. From the bench, Ferriby handed first-team debuts to youngsters George Bell and Kojo Keyi, with Tom Bolton named as an unused substitute. After a fairly bright start, Ferriby soon found themselves 1-0 down after only 14 minutes, with Roarie Deacon slotting past Rory Watson. The second and third followed, soon later, with Jamie Collins and Max Biamou capitalising on some poor defence. It was Ferriby who began the second half the strongest, with Robbie Tinkler pulling a goal back for the Villagers. This was as good as it got for the boys in Green and White, with Kieron Cadogan bagging a brace and Sutton’s 4th and 5th goals to wrap up a 5-1 victory. The defeat leaves Ferriby bottom of the National League, 8 points from safety. With 13 goals conceded in the last 3 games, and without a win in 4 games, relegation is seeming like an unfortunate certainty.
