Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2017/18 #14

21st September, 2017

AFC Mansfield produced a big upset in midweek to set up a tantalising Emirates FA Cup tie at home to Vanarama National League North and former Football League side Boston United later this month.

The Bulls went behind in the second minute of their Second Round of Qualifying Replay at Evo-Stik Premier Division outfit Rushall Olympic on Tuesday night but showed great determination to turn the tie on its head at the start of the second period.

Matthew Plummer levelled on 55 minutes and, soon after, top scorer Oliver Fearon grabbed his eleventh goal of the season to claim a well deserved 2-1 victory.

Sadly, they will not be joined by Handsworth Parramore who were beaten 6-2 in their replay at National League North's FC United of Manchester, Oscar Radford and Patrick Lindley grabbing late goals for the Amber Parras.

Pickering Town missed out on a chance of going top of the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division as they drew 2-2 at Albion Sports, Lewis Taylor bringing them back level in first half stoppage time after Daniel Facey had given the Lions an eleventh minute lead.

Ryan Blott then gave the Pikes a slight advantage on the hour but parity was restored from the penalty spot by Omar Habeeb to ensure the spoils were shared.

Worksop Town have climbed up into fifth after Kyle Jordan netted early in the second period to claim a 1-0 victory for the Tigers at Liversedge whilst goals from Adam Lee and Jack Turnbull saw Staveley Miners Welfare overcome a stubborn Clipstone at the Worksop Van Hire Stadium, 2-0.

Staveley are now ninth whilst the Cobras remain bottom still searching for their first point of the campaign.

Thackley are down into twelfth following a 3-2 lost at Penistone Church, Kieran Ryan with what proved to be a vital winner for the hosts on 66 minutes to claim their second win of the season and move them up into nineteenth.

Fellow strugglers Parkgate also picked up three valuable points as they won 3-2 at Harrogate Railway Athletic who drop to twentieth having been leapt over by their opponents and Penistone, Kieran Hirst with a double for the victorious Steelmen.

And, there was a 2-2 draw for Bottesford Town at home to Hall Road Rangers, the visitors taking a point thanks to Tom Bennett's 85th minute equaliser.

In Division One, Rossington Main came from two goals down to take a point at home to Brigg Town, Will Wraith and Connor Williamson netting in the final quarter-of-an-hour for the fourth-placed side after Ryan Thompson and Charlie Dolling struck for the visitors who climb off the foot of the table.

Armthorpe Welfare and Grimsby Borough are up into the top seven after victories, Christopher Gowen and Gary Collier securing the points for Armthorpe in a 2-0 triumph at Glasshoughton Welfare.

Meanwhile, the goals were shared around in Borough's 5-1 home win over Ollerton Town, James Wroot, Joshua Venney, James Petronzio, Adam Drury and Jack Debnam scoring to make it a comfortable evening.

Jamie Hopkins scored for Swallownest as their single goal defeat of hosts Worsbrough Bridge Athletic sees them climb to eleventh whilst victories for Winterton Rangers and AFC Emley keep them fourteenth and fifteenth, respectively.

Luke Anderson's injury-time penalty - his second goal of the evening - snatched Winterton a 2-1 win at Retford United whilst Luke Hill also struck twice, including a spot kick, as Emley beat hosts Nostell Miners Welfare, 5-0.
