Widnes FC 2-0 Glossop North End – Match Report

Glossop North End suffered defeat away at Widnes in a game played at Barnton Football Club.

The hosts started the brighter and got in behind the Glossop defence on 4 occasions, however they were offside on all 4 attacks.

Glossop had the first effort of the match as McKenzie glided past Michael Grogan but from a tight angle could only strike the side netting.

The game began to open up and Widnes started to apply some pressure. George Webster crossed from the right and found Chris Lomax whose header was superbly tipped over by Russ Saunders at full stretch.

Widnes did eventually make their pressure count just before the 30th minute. Webster was involved again, he crossed from the right and this time found an unmarked Michael Grogan who at the back post was able to head the ball past Saunders.

Moments later, Widnes nearly doubled their lead. Glossop can thank Saunders for saving them twice. He blocked the first shot as a Widnes player broke into the box and as the ball rolled towards goal, he raced back to clear off his line. Widnes went into half time 1-0 up.

The second half started with a rare Glossop attack. Mason found McKenzie superbly who was through on goal, he cut back inside and was fouled by a Widnes defender. Ref Kristian Silcock wasn’t convinced and waved play on.

McKenzie did have another chance from a free kick 20 yards from goal. His effort looked to be heading in however keeper Richard Mottram turned the ball out for a corner.

Shortly after on 65 minutes, Widnes doubled their lead. Widnes’s main threat George Webster created their second goal. Unmarked in the box, he passed across goal for former Glossop player Jamie Rainford who had the simple task of tapping the ball into a half empty net.

George Lomax and George Webster had further opportunities to score for Widnes but Saunders saved both of their one on one efforts.

The game soon fizzled out with chances at a premium. Glossop were beaten 2-0.

They head to Grantham Town on Tuesday in the Integro League Cup.
