Toolstation NCEL Match Review 2018/19 #43

14th February, 2019

Division One side Swallownest overcame Premier Division opposition to become one of six teams in midweek to book their place in the Quarter-Finals of this season's Toolstation NCEL League Cup.

They travelled to Hall Road Rangers on Tuesday night and came away with a 2-1 victory in a match where all three goals came in the final quarter of the tie.

Alex Lill put the visitors ahead on 68, that was cancelled out by Jack Lormier eleven minutes later but Lill struck once again to send the away side through to the last eight as the match edged closer towards extra time.

Ollerton Town were unable to replicate that feat as they went down 5-2 at Hemsworth Miners Welfare with their Premier Division hosts 3-0 up by the interval through Jason Yates, Adam Knight and Richard Collier.

Knight got his second and Welfare's fourth on 86 minutes before Ollerton grabbed a couple through Gavin King and Sam Stretton, sandwiching Seon Ripley's further strike for the home side.

Joe Walton's hat-trick helped Liversedge to a 4-1 home victory over fellow Premier Division side Penistone Church after Aaron Fell's penalty had given them an early lead whilst the visitors' consolation also came from the spot, courtesy of Nathan Keightley.

Tuesday also saw the outstanding Third Round tie played as Selby Town ran out 3-1 winners at home to Division One rivals Skegness Town, a Jack Boswell own goal and Gary Collier's strike sealing the tie.

That was after the first half ended with the sides tied at 1-1, Liam Flanagan breaking the deadlock for the Robins but parity was quickly restored by Alex Nichols for the Lilywhites.

Three more sides won their Fourth Round ties on Wednesday night with Worksop Town requiring extra time to see off ten-man Maltby Main at Muglet Lane.

Steven Wankiewicz put the visitors ahead in first half stoppage time but Cameron Rigby forced a further half-hour when he struck towards the end of the second period and Craig Mitchell claimed a 2-1 victory in the 100th minute.

Despite a second half brace from Alhassane Keita for Albion Sports, it was Handsworth Parramore who progessed, Leon Howarth's double added to by Waide Fairhurst, Lee Cooksey and Rikki Paylor in a 5-2 away win.

And, Hallam won an all-Division One tussle at AFC Emley, Micah Bishop with the only goal of a tight game on the half-hour mark.

There were two Premier Division matches played on Tuesday night with Bridlington Town climbing up into third following their 3-0 win at bottom side Goole AFC.

Jake Day's early opener for the Seasiders was added to by a late double from Nathan Modest to move them to within eight points of leaders Penistone with two games in hand.

One of the sides they leapfrogged were Knaresborough Town who drop to sixth after their 1-1 home draw with Staveley Miners Welfare who move up one place to eighth.

Luke Stewart had seemingly given Knaresborough the points in the 83rd minute but Tomas Poole snatched an equaliser in stoppage time to make it honours even at Manse Lane.
