Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2016/17 #62

The two second-placed sides in the Toolstation NCEL - Pickering Town and AFC Emley - both kept the pressure on the leaders of the Premier Division and Division One, respectively, with wins in midweek.

A second-half brace from Ryan Blott secured the Pikes a 2-1 victory at Albion Sports after Karl Hall had given the hosts a seventeenth minute lead to move them within a point of leaders Cleethorpes Town but having played three matches more.

Elsewhere in the division, six goals were shared equally in the top five clash at Dennyfield as Matthew Broadley put Thackley ahead on 17 at home to Bridlington Town before Joel Sutton and Chris Jenkinson struck to give the Seasiders a half-time advantage.

Adam Jones quickly restored parity after the interval but Timothy Taylor then put the visitors back in the lead before an 80th minute equaliser from Luke O'Brien made it a point apiece in a 3-3 draw.

Handsworth Parramore kept themselves between those two teams in fourth as they won 2-1 at Worksop Town, Jack Waddle putting the 'hosts' in front early on before Aaron Moxam and Stephen Warne made sure the 'visitors' were the victors in the Sandy Lane Derby.

Barton Town Old Boys were unable to put further daylight between themselves and the bottom three as they lost 5-2 at home to Bottesford Town to remain two points above the drop zone, Daniel Boulton's brace helping to ensure an away win that moved Bottesford up into thirteenth.

And, it was a 1-1 draw between hosts Liversedge and AFC Mansfield, Tom Brook's opener for the home side cancelled out by Oliver Fearon for the Bulls.

In Division One, Emley are a point behind leaders Pontefract Collieries having played one game more, as Ashley Flynn, Joshua Ingram and Callum Charlton all struck in the first half to win 3-2 at Dronfield Town, Jamie Willis and Daniel Wood netting for the hosts.

James Petronzio and Louis Grant ensured a 2-1 win for Grimsby Borough at Teversal that sees them stay in fifth spot ahead of Hallam who beat visitors Winterton Rangers, 4-0, with goals from Oliver Beaumont, Callum Greaves, Tom Roebuck and Scott Bates.

Worsbrough Bridge Athletic are now nine points away from the bottom two after their third straight win, Tom Guest's ninth-minute strike claiming a 1-0 home win over Glasshoughton Welfare.

Westella & Willerby drew 2-2 at home with Rossington Main to fall two points further behind Worsbrough, Alex Wood with two penalties for the hosts after Lee Holmes had struck twice for Main in the opening 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, late goals from Calum Ward and Callum Terrell helped Selby Town to a 3-0 victory at Shirebrook Town to move the Robins up into eleventh.
