REPORT | Matlock Town 0-2 Barwell

Barwell continued their fine away form with a 2-0 victory at Matlock Town.

The visitors dominated the first half, particularly through Elliot Percival and Matt Stenson on the right-hand side. Percival and Stenson delivered some pinpoint crosses, which Mitchell Piggon and Jake Whitmore failed to convert.

Matlock had their spells of pressure, with Jamie Jackson looking to cause a resilient Barwell defence problems by running into the channels.

Joe Doyle-Charles had the clearest chance for Matlock on 29 minutes. however Eddy Nisevic recovered well to deny him from inside the box.

Just three minutes later, Matt Stenson got his head on the end of a whipped cross from Craig Stanley at the back post to power the ball into the net. That header - which was Stenson's tenth goal of the season - was the difference going into the break.

Matlock came flying out of the blocks in the second half. Jake Green had a shot deflected wide and Max Hunt headed wide from the resulting corner.

Heavy Matlock pressure kept Barwell camped in their own half at the start of the second period. The Barwell defence stood strong and weathered the storm to prevent Matlock from causing any serious threat.

Barwell slowly grew back into the game, with Owen Story and Jake Heath looked to create. With three minutes left to play, Barwell put some good play together and striker Mitchell Piggon rounded Phil Barnes in the Matlock net to calmly slot the ball home.
