Sheffield 4-1 Romulus

Romulus suffered defeat in their final game of the season, but the final score didn’t reflect the balance of play as Sheffield secured a play-off place with victory at Dronfield.

 

The Roms started well and created the better chances, the most notable falling to Nathan Blissett on 25 minutes, but his shot from outside the box was tame and easily gathered by Sheffield ‘keeper Josh Mimms.

The hosts took the lead on the break on 36 minutes when the ball was worked out to Conor Higginson after a Romulus corner – Higginson then charged from the halfway line and hit a dipping half volley past the stranded Lewis Exall from just outside the area.

Romulus’ James Reid should have equalised before the break but over-ran the ball when clean through with Josh Mimms gathering at the striker’s feet and the visitors’ best chance of the day went begging.

The match ebbed and flowed until the final twenty minutes when Sheffield took control – Andy Gascoigne rifled home from 20 yards through a host of bodies following a half cleared corner.

At 2-0, the Roms were still in the game, but a comical penalty ended their challenge – Curtis Wynter thought that the ball had ran out of play with four minutes to play and picked it up in the penalty area – the match officials judged the ball was still in play and awarded a spot kick which Gascoigne netted with ease.

Charisma Agbonlahor latched onto a throughball and finished confidently to give Roms a consolation but Jason Bradley’s speculative late effort completed the scoring for Sheffield and sealed fourth place for them and a trip to Ilkeston in the play-offs.
