Radford are sunk by two own goals
STRUGGLING Radford were pipped 3-2 at home by Radcliffe Olympic after conceding two own goals.
The first came in the first minute, the second in added time. In between, Radford took the lead with goals either side of the break from Combe and Ratcliffe, before sub Ryan Smith levelled late on.
Olympic, who had Reggie Royes replacing the suspended Adam Whitehead, took the lead when Matt Smith's mistimed header looped over the keeper.
Radford began to threaten through Louis Radcliffe and Jarrod Russell up front and keeper Joe McCormack twice saved goal-bound efforts from Russell.

Radford's Ben Wallace looked certain to score, only to be denied by a last-ditch challenge from West.
Radford, looking dangerous on the break, took the lead on 71 minutes when Louis Radcliffe fired into the bottom corner.
