RYLANDS boss Dave McNabb was "massively pleased" to see his side come from behind to record their fourth straight league win on Tuesday.

Kane Drummond's second-half double secured a 3-1 win at Padiham, who ended the match with nine men.

Skipper Garry Kenny had earlier cancelled out the opening goal from Mark Ayres, who was one of the two home players to be shown the red card along with Sean Ince.

“I'm massively happy with the result," McNabb said.

"When you come to a place like this on a Tuesday night, the most you can ask for is three points and I thought we were good value for it.

"It perhaps could have been more but Padiham are a very good side.

"They don’t get enough credit for how good they are and the way they play. They pushed us right to the limit.

"The first half was touch and go. I thought we were a little fortunate to go in level at half time.

"In the second half, we showed our class, kept and moved the ball better and caused them a lot of problems.

"In the end, we got what we deserved."

Blues were behind after just 11 minutes when a free kick was clipped forward for Ayres to loop a header beyond keeper Graeme McCall.

The visitors pushed and forced home stopper Matthew Holmes into several excellent saves, with Drummond and Freddie Potter denied.

However, their pressure was rewarded just before half time.

Tom Freeman's ball in was flicked on by Potter for Kenny to head home at the far post.

Rylands continued to turn the screw after the break, with Freeman looking dangerous on the left-hand side.

They finally hit the front after 72 minutes when Potter showed great feet to beat a defender and play in Drummond, who finished low from close range.

Four minutes later, Ayres was dismissed for a cynical foul on Freeman before Rylands finally put the game beyond doubt.

Substitute Tom McNamara struck the post with an ambitious effort and the rebound fell for Drummond to tap in his second goal.

There was still time for another Padiham dismissal as Ince was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Liam O'Neill.
