Shirebrook Taste Derby Day Defeat
Lewis Warwick goal saw Bolsover take the spoils on Derby Day
It was the away side who had the better of the first half but Shirebrook almost took the lead with the first attack of the game when Sam Martin cross was close to finding Ben Burbanks but Bolsover began to get on top with Shirebrook struggling to deal with the long throw of Bolsover but every chance that fell Bolsover way they failed to take with Shirebrook goalkeeper Levi Owen on top form again but in the 38th minute Bolsover took the lead when Shirebrook didn’t deal with another long throw and Lewis Warwick nodded in to give the away side the lead and with Shirebrook having offered very little going forward they had work to do in the 2nd half.
Shirebrook struggled at the start of the 2nd half to get going with Bolsover having a lot of the ball but as the half wore on Bolsover began to sit back and this allowed Shirebrook to start pushing forward but George Simpson shot was the only real chance of note that Shirebrook had and it was a very disappointing result to end the year for Shirebrook.
