Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2017/18 #55

22nd February, 2018

The three sides chasing runaway Toolstation NCEL Premier Division leaders AFC Mansfield all won in midweek to prove that the title race is anything but over.

Second-placed Handsworth Parramore cut the gap to ten points with one game in hand of the Bulls with a 5-0 home victory over Athersley Recreation with Jordan Turner and Jed Philiips giving them a two goal cushion at the interval.

Turner grabbed his second and his team's third on the hour before Jamie Green and an Alex Rippon penalty completed the scoring.

Pontefract Collieries stay third after their 3-0 win over basement visitors Clipstone, Jack Dando's own goal on thirteen minutes breaking the deadlock before Jack Greenhough doubled the Colls advantage prior to the break and Kieran Scargill added their third with just over a quarter-of-an-hour remaining.

Pontefract are now thirteen points off the summit but have seven games in hand so are AFC Mansfield's biggest rivals to the trophy.

And, Pickering Town kept themselves in with a shout as they won 5-3 at Liversedge to also be thirteen points away from top spot with four more matches to play than the Bulls.

Six of the night's eight goals came in the last thirteen minutes of the opening period with Billy Logan and Ryan Blott putting the visitors 2-0 up before a quickfire Joseph Walton brace levelled the scores, Blott's second regained the Pikes' lead and Rhys Davies made sure it was 3-3 at half-time with seconds to go.

Pickering, though, pushed on after the interval with Joe Danby and George Bissett scoring in a four minute period round the hour mark to give them the victory.

In Division One, Dronfield Town are now the form team after their 2-0 home victory over Ollerton Town made it sixteen points earned out of the last eighteen on offer for the Derbyshire side.

Stuart Hill's 24th minute opener was added to early in the second half by Callum Mawbey to keep Dronfield in twelfth spot but they are now only ten points away from the play-off zone.

Meanwhile, five more sides booked their places in the Fourth Round of this season's League Cup with Division One promotion chasers Yorkshire Amateur producing the result of the midweek matches as they won 4-0 at home to Premier Division Garforth Town, thanks to a Harrison Blakey hat-trick and a goal from Aaron Kitao.

There were also three goals for Joel Sutton as Bridlington Town won 3-1 at Worksop Town whilst a brace for Nathan Forbes ensured Parkgate went through 2-0 at home to Glasshoughton Welfare.

Rainworth Miners Welfare and Staveley Miners Welfare are also through to Thursday night's draw as Nathan Modest, Max Pemberton and Charlie Dawes netted in the Wrens' 3-0 victory at Rossington Main and Staveley's Thomas Ellis got the only goal as Staveley progressed at the expense of hosts Harrogate Railway Athletic.
