Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2017/18 #59

16th March, 2018

Penistone Church have become the latest Toolstation NCEL side to reach a county cup final this season after they won 2-0 at home to Premier Division rivals Maltby Main in midweek.

Goals from Nathan Keightley and Kieran Ryan towards the end of the half gave the DSM Memorial Ground outfit the victory in the Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup.

Penistone will now face Shaw Lane, Swallownest or Frickley Athletic at Sheffield United's Bramall Lane ground, the second season in a row that they will have played a match at the Championship venue having won the League Cup there last year.

In other knockout action, AFC Mansfield became the first side to reach the Quarter-Finals of the League Cup as they narrowly squeezed through their Fourth Round tie with a 2-1 extra-time home victory over Staveley Miners Welfare.

Liam Greenfield had given the visitors a 75th minute lead but the Premier Division leaders fought back and levelled through Oliver Fearon before Craig Mitchell grabbed the winner with nine minutes to go in the added half-hour.

Meanwhile, the race for the Premier Division title continues to hot up as two of the sides chasing Mansfield both won 5-1 to close the gap to the summit to seven points with games in hand.

Pontefract Collieries are up to second after Aaron Moxam's hat-trick, along with goals from Vaughan Redford and Eli Hey, gave them a comfortable victory at Hemsworth Miners Welfare.

Pickering Town, meanwhile, defeated visitors Albion Sports by the same scoreline to climb to third with Ryan Blott netting a brace whilst injury time goals from Billy Logan and George Eustance gave the result an even more one-sided slant.

Gary Bradshaw, Archie Brown and Chris Adams got on the scoresheet for Bridlington Town as their 3-1 home defeat of Worksop Town moved the Seasiders to within two points of the top eight.

And, four goals for Oliver Dyson helped Liversedge to a 5-2 win at Athersley Recreation in what was only Sedge's sixth league match since Christmas.

Knaresborough Town's charge to the Division One title seems unstoppable as they stretched their advantage at the top to twelve points but they had to rely on an 86th minute winner from Sam Cook in a tight 1-0 victory at fifth-placed Shirebrook Town.

Second-placed Grimsby Borough lost a little ground as they drew 2-2 at Worsbrough Bridge Athletic, Luke Mascall's late penalty seemingly giving them the win before Kieran Hirst grabbed a vital equaliser for the hosts in stoppage time.

That point could prove important for the Briggers who move to five points clear of the relegation zone whilst it was also a good midweek for the two sides just above them who picked up huge victories on their travels.

Two second-half goals from Cory Goodwin saw FC Bolsover come from behind to win 3-2 at play-off chasing Winterton Rangers and the Derbyshire side are now eight points above the dreaded dotted line.

Nostell Miners Welfare are eleven points ahead of the bottom two after their 2-0 victory at AFC Emley, Lee Swift and Liam Owen with their goals.

A Mitchell Dunne double boosted Hallam's play-off aspirations as a 2-1 home success over East Yorkshire Carnegie sees them up to ninth whilst Dronfield Town beat visitors Swallownest by the same scoreline thanks to first half strikes from Callum Mawbey and Mark Fereday.
