Priory Celtic 1 v 1 AFC Kirk Hallam

Strong rearguard does the job for Celtic

After just 11 minutes into this clash between the leagues top two sides Kirk Hallam had hit the woodwork on four occasions.This was to be a sign of things to come as they came up against a Kimberley side that seemingly had one intention, and that was to park the proverbial bus and hit on a rare break.

Priory though, were more than capable with plenty of pace in attack but the Kirk Hallam defence was marshalled by Scott Morris who had an excellent game at the back.

The frustration of the early misses was compounded for the remainder of the match by a number of other factors.... two cables that the ball kept hitting above the 4G pitch and a combination of a homo linesman and a referee that had a stinker.

Make no mistake, this isn't sour grapes, Priory's team defended admirably blocking and clearing their lines time and time again, the keeper was rarely troubled, such were the lack of real clear cut chances, and the visitors can only blame themselves for dropping their first points of the season.

Kirk Hallam had to wait 2 minutes before the break to open the scoring.... A cross from Andy Flindall picking out Paul Scattergood in the six yard box for his second of the season.

Shortly after the interval the hosts equalised... A lapse in concentration allowed Priory to get behind us and after a second opportunity fell to the forward he made no mistake.

Kirk Hallam then pushed but the ref denied a couple of penalty appeals.

Next game will be Shardlow away at Sawley park on Jan 7th.
