LIVEWIRE Lye Town turned the formbook upside down when they toppled top of the table Ilkeston Town 1-0 this week.

Nicky Turton's 28th minute strike proved the difference as Lye pulled off a prized victory

Lye boss Andy Wyton said: "I just didn't see it coming. I knew that if we didn't turn up, we'd get spanked.

"I even told the players that I didn't expect them to win and I think it took the pressure of them.

"I just told them to go out and enjoy themselves. But they were fantastic to a man and I take my hat off to them.

"In fact we should have won by more.

"If we played like we did against Ilkeston every week, then we would be top.

"We should have scored when Geoff Hill was put through on a one-on-one with their keeper, but the ball has bobbled and Geoff side-footed it over.

"Their keeper also pulled off a great save to keep out Lewis Worsey.

"Ilkeston didn't have a shot on target in the first half as Leigh Pardoe and Adam Meacham were magnificent in defence. Then goalkeeper Kieren Boucher pulled off two good saves in the second half.

"It's hard to believe it was the same side that lost to South Normanton and Stourport Swifts."

Lye have no fixture this Saturday but entertain the RAF Representative side next Tuesday in the Walsall Senior Cup.
