21st March, 2019

Worksop Town's eleventh straight victory - a new club record - moved them six points clear at the top of the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division in midweek.

A 2-1 win at Hemsworth Miners Welfare, who started the match in fourth spot, came courtesy of a Matthew Reay opener and a Matthew Sykes penalty whilst their hosts pulled one back midway through the second period through Seon Ripley.

The Tigers are now favourites to lift the title but host second-placed Penistone Church on Saturday in a game that could blow the race wide open once again going into the final month of the season.

Staveley Miners Welfare climb above Hemsworth into fourth as they stretched their unbeaten run to a dozen games with a 1-0 home win over Bottesford Town.

Joe Pugh netted his seventeenth league goal of the campaign with thirteen minutes remaining of a tight game at Inkersall Road.

In Division One, second placed Campion won 3-1 at home to Shirebrook Town to close the gap with leaders Grimsby Borough to six points with three games in hand.

A fast start saw James Bicknell's side 2-0 up within twenty minutes through Graham Hall and Marcus Day before Aiden Day grabbed their third towards the end of the opening period and Robbie Savage claimed a 70th minute consolation for their visitors from Derbyshire.

Worsbrough Bridge Athletic, meanwhile, consolidated sixth spot with a 5-2 victory over Ollerton Town at Park Road.

Sam Corner's hat-trick and a brace from Shaun Mundy on their debuts secured a straightforward win with the away side replying with a couple of penalties from Gavin King, taking his league tally for the season to 27 goals.

And, in the League Cup, Swallownest are through to the semi-finals courtesy of a penalty shoot-out at fellow Division One side Selby Town.

They were two minutes away from completing the job in normal time after Nathan Morritt had given them a first half lead but Liam Flanagan struck to force extra time.

With no further goals, the tie went to spot kicks that Jordan Stocks' men won 4-2 and they join Hemsworth and Liversedge in the final four with Staveley Miners Welfare or Worksop set to complete the quartet when they play their quarter-final next week.
