Run comes crashing to a halt!.

Stamford failed to make it five unbeaten as they lose by five at home to Stocksbridge. Writes Stephen Breden

Stamford had their first chance of the game as the ball dropped to Jamie Mcghee on the edge of the box but he volleyed way over the bar.

On the 31st minute of a fairly dull first half Stocksbridge had the lead as a long ball from the back was flicked past the onrushing Sam Donkin by Brodie Litchfield. The ball fell into the path of Richard Sirrup who rolled it home.

A minute later Brodie Litchfield should have made it two as another long ball wasn’t dealt with by the defence but he shot into the side netting. On the 36th minute Harrison Biggins shot from a free-kick but it was deflected into the arms of Sam Donkin.

Moments later the visitors had a penalty, following a push in the back of the attacker from Jon Challinor. Biggins stepped up and despite Donkin diving the right way found the back of the net.

At half time Danny Draper was replaced by Chris Hollist who went into the defence with Jon Challinor going into the midfield. On the 54th minute Jon Challinor shot from a tight angle which was easily dealt with by David Reay. On the 60th minute John King replaced Courtney Meade.

Two minutes later Harrison Biggins volleyed from range but this was an easy save for Sam Donkin. Three minutes later after a defensive mix up Sam Donkin pulled out an exceptional reflex save from a flicked shot from the Stocksbridge forward.

On the 71st minute Karl Whymark came on for Curtis Hartley. Moments later Nathaniel Crofts beat two Stamford defenders before shooting just wide. Four minutes later they had another chance with Sam Donkin saving well from a Biggins free-kick.

With four minutes of the 90 to go Stocksbridge had a deserved third as Scott Ruthven volleyed over Sam Donkin and into the back of the net.

Three minutes later they grabbed another one as the ball was pulled back to Joshua Hobson on the edge of the box who shot into the back of the net.

Just a minute later they had another as Scott Ruthven received the ball on the edge of the box, he turned and shot in making it 5-0.
