Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2019/20 #8

5th September, 2019

AFC Mansfield became the fourth Toolstation NCEL side to make it through to First Round Qualifying in this season's Emirates FA Cup with a victory in their Preliminary Round replay in midweek.

They were one of three teams who had a second chance of progression on Tuesday night but were the only ones who were able to do so as they won 2-1 at home to Heanor Town.

Ross Duggan gave the Bulls a seventeenth minute lead before Brett Lucas doubled their advantage soon after the hour mark.

Heanor battled back into the game, quickly halving the deficit, but the hosts won to book a trip to Barwell on Saturday.

Eccleshill United and Goole AFC, however, fell to higher-ranked opposition with Eccleshill taking the lead in the 51st minute through Jonathan Irving before going down 3-1 at Glossop North End.

And, despite a goal from Joshua Schofield, Goole were beaten 4-1 at home by Dunston UTS with two penalties setting the visitors on their way.

Meanwhile, there was one match in Division One with Retford FC climbing up into third spot with a 3-1 win at Hallam.

The away side raced into a three-goal lead with Will Tomlinson opening the scoring on three minutes before Shay Evans-Booth struck twice, once from the penalty spot, to give them an unassailable lead by the half-hour.

Samuel Smith pulled one back on 34 but, remarkably, that was to be the last goal of the game, giving Retford the points that move them within goal difference of the summit whilst Hallam remain sixteenth.
