Hartlepool the prize as Reds progress in Trophy

Other than a fifteen-minute purple patch from the visitors, Reds were in complete control of this Buildbase FA Trophy replay against Glossop’s shadow squad, emerging even more comfortable winners than the scoreline suggests.

They can now look forward to a glamour tie against National League Hartlepool United who will make their debut in the competition at Borough Park.

After shading the original tie in Derbyshire, Reds went into the decider as favourites but unavailability within the Glossop ranks made their task more straightforward than anticipated.

From the moment Matty Douglas headed home the opening goal after just seven minutes, the outcome was never in doubt. The ‘prolific’ Douglas arrived at the far post, unmarked, met Dav Symington’s free kick, and guided the ball past the helpless keeper for his sixth goal of the season.

Seven minutes later, Reds doubled their lead after Jason Hill upended Sam Joel inside the area. Scott Allison stepped up to confidently drive the ball home via the spot.

Allison turned provider for the third goal with a perfectly weighted assist releasing Joel through the inside-right channel. As Phillips advanced off his line Joel blasted the ball past him for a third goal after twenty-two minutes.

With what surely was an unassailable lead, Reds eased off slightly and their complacency was quickly punished.

North End reduced the arrears with a well-worked goal on the half-hour mark, prompting their best spell of the game. Courtney Meppen-Walter’s gem of a left foot chipped a free kick into the area, Ben Deegan rose unchallenged to head the ball down and Zeph Thomas had the simple task of side-footing home from close range.

But the revival was over within four minutes of the restart with two Symington specials putting the Evo-Stik North outfit to the sword.

Just forty seconds after the break he thundered the ball home with his left foot and, four minutes later, did the same with his right – both from the edge of the box and both rippling the net before the experienced Phillips could react.

But Glossop joint manager, Phillips, came to the fore, thereafter. He made two spectacular reflex saves to thwart Gari Rowntree’s ‘thirty- yarder’ and what would have been Symington’s hat-trick goal. Then, two more routine stops denied Allison and Douglas as play continued in the Glossop half.

Nathan Waterston did find a way past Phillips but his ‘goal’ was disallowed after the substitute had strayed offside.

It was all too easy in the end but one feels it would have been different had Glossop not been so seriously weakened for the replay.
