A scrappy first-half saw both teams have a number of decent opportunities with Parkgate’s Ollie Yates making a goal saving challenge in the 15th minute. The ball came across the box and he slid in to prevent the attacker putting the ball in the net. Later in the half, Yates was the saviour again, clearing the ball from the six-yard box to prevent two Ferriby players pouncing on a rebound from a well hit shot that hit the bar.
The Steelmen has a number of chances too, the best coming as the ball fell to the man in-form ‘Jonathan Fusco, who could only put his effort wide as he went through on goal.
The first-half also saw Parkgate’s defender ‘Haydn Ward go off with a nasty looking ankle injury which saw him replaced and took through to hospital.

Ferriby continued to press for a second, which limited the chances for Parkgate. In the 50th minute the ball hit the post for the hosts. Ingham was made to make to a few good saves in quick concession to keep the score line at only one.
After weathering the storm, Parkgate began to push forward and make some chances at last. In 70th minute a long range shot was put well over.
The last ten minutes saw the game return to the scrappy nature we saw in the first half. Russell was sent to the sin bin in the 83rd minute for dissent towards the ref, whilst Assistant Manager Lee Whitehead was given a warning from the referee also.
The final minutes saw a scuffle amongst the players in the far corner of the pitch as Yates picked a yellow card for a foul previously.
