FA Cup 2018-19 off to a steady start

The FA Cup provides all teams a chance to dream big

The purple army of City of Liverpool FC were out in full force to watch a game that gave Glossop the chance to put their poor start to league football to one side for an afternoon. The FA Cup provides all teams a chance to dream big and Glossop are no different.
The first 45 minutes saw scrappy and wasteful moments from both sides, with a goal each ruled out for offside.
Early on, Russ Saunders produced an excellent stop and Glossop's Will Beesley wasted the best opportunity of the first half. Daz Mason had held the play up well and sent Beesley through on goal on the overlap. With Andy Bishop begging for the pull back in the middle, the advancing full back chose to shoot but pulled his shot wide. Disappointing result but easy to see why Beesley went for the glory in such a promising position.
With 20 minutes played, the hosts had called for two penalties but in truth they were going down like dominoes in the wind. A strong referee kept his whistle away from his lips.
The ball soon ended up in the Glossop goal before being rightfully ruled out for offside. Glossop then had their own disallowed goal to disappoint the traveling fans. Daz Mason's offside effort followed a flicked pass from Alex Elliott, who had replaced Andy Bishop just moments earlier.
Nil nil at half time in a sloppy game that had seen good spells for both teams with neither truly deserving of the lead. The Hillmen would need to be wary of counter attacks and would surely need to sharpen their own tools at the other end.
The second half was engrossing and entertaining from kick off to full time with the visitors taking the lead from a rebounded free kick, eventually put over the line by Jason Hill.
The Hillmen had been out and ready for the second half a good few minutes before the hosts and they certainly looked fired up and were deserving of their lead.
They were then fairly lucky to stay in front as the home side found a bit of form and began to make chances with balls in behind. Despite evading the officials' glares with a cheeky handball to aid his control, the home side's number 10 couldn't make the most of a one on one with Russ Saunders, who saved well again.
Just moments later, Saunders was picking the ball out of his net with an almighty din coming from behind him courtesy of the partisan crowd and their resident trombonist, though their cheers turned to jeers as they slowly realised the goal had been given as offside. Glossop mopped their brows and regrouped.
As the hosts continued to tighten their control of the play, Glossop's skipper Matty Russell was adapting to the increasingly threatening involvement of the Purps' affectionately named 'purple Messi', Jack Hazlehurst. Both Russell and Alex Elliott showed some much needed grit with a couple of well timed but aggressive challenges within seconds of each other.
Mason was then denied for a second time in the match. This time he had just nudged his marker in the back as he rose to head home a cross. In years gone by this might have been seen as a clever creation of space, but the liner was right to flag for the foul.
Having previously tried to show him down the line, Glossop allowed the 'purple Messi' to cut inside and let his feet do the talking. Living up to his nickname, he equalised with an individual effort that was sent spinning into the top corner with the inside of his right foot.
The same player very nearly carved out another opportunity or two before full time, but a few breaks in play and three Glossop corners slowed the host's progress, meaning that we'll need a replay to sort this one out.
A good day over in Liverpool and another chance to get the right result coming up.
