Sorry Ashton Lack Steel

Robins Outfought in Every Department Report Steve Lee

Ashton United’s five game unbeaten run ended with a shock defeat against a Stocksbridge Park Steels team that are battling hard for safety after a late season run had seen them crucially overtake Kendal Town to move to third from bottom.
Ashton had the first effort of the game as Thomas Moore got on the end of a Matty Burke corner, but headed over the bar.
The Robins unbeaten run coincided with five successive clean sheets but ten minutes into the game Steels took the lead with some poor defending resulting in Joynes comfortably beating Paul Phillips.
Ashton were guilty of some more sloppy play midway through the half as Chris Bettney’s cross was totally missed by a defender and Joynes had the easiest of chances from close range.
Ben Turner then had a shot following a free kick through a crowd of players, but missed the target.
Ashton grabbed a goal back when Thomas Moore produced a sublime free kick that curled into the top corner with keeper Ben Scott motionless.
The home side almost levelled close to the break as Chris Amadi played the ball to Chris Baguley, who in turn fed Matty Burke, but his shot was deflected onto the post.
Amadi had a mazy run at the start of the second half, but his effort went across the face of goal.
Liam Davis produced a good block to deny Baguley from close range and then Scott saved well from a Moore shot.
Substitute Kyle Riley made a quick impact into the game with a fine cross from the right after beating Nick Swirad, only for Baguley to head over with Amadi unmarked on the far post.
Moore had another chance with a free kick, but his effort went over the bar, as Ashton searched for an equaliser.
Eleven minutes from time Steels regained their two goal lead as Phillips got a hand to Joynes long range effort, but it packed too much power as the striker completed his hat-trick.
The Robins completed the scoring two minutes later after Craig Robinson was fouled by Brett Bowden-Lovell and Moore comfortably beat Scott from the spot.
Burke had a chance late on, but was crowded out by the Stocksbridge defence, who held on to secure three more vital points.

Ashton Phillips, Harrop, Lambert, Moore, Robionson, Frost, Kosylo (B Smith 71), Burke, Sherriff (Riley 56), Baguley, Amadi. (subs not
