Robins spot on at Silverlands

Two first half penalties from Josh Wilson saw the visitors take the points in Derbyshire against one of their former managers. With several ex-Robins in their line up it was the Bucks off to a flyer as four minutes in a free kick from just outside the area was placed into the far corner of the goal by Diego de Girolamo despite Worsnop’s best efforts. After Hardy’s pass was then just too far ahead of the centre forward Ashton drew level from the penalty spot after Anghel had been clattered over by Oyibo following Jordan Slew’s dangerous cross.

More good work from Slew then saw Tomsett’s header land in Shenton’s arms and Slew’s own effort was deflected wide of the near post. A fine left foot cross from Lufudu  then saw Slew just failed to connect but Lufudu was immediately brought down by opposite number Roscoe as he burst into the area and Wilson was against secure in converting. Aaron Chalmers bouncing cross was met at the back post by Roscoe who was unable to keep his effort down and after Clee had fired straight at Shenton from Slew’s pass Lufudu strode into the area and hit the outside of the post with the interval beckoning.

Clee then forced another good low save out of Shenton and De Girolamo’s speculative effort from the centre circle drifted wide. O’Grady’s header was held by Worsnop after Roscoe’s head back from a long cross and Chalmers’ free kick saw O’Grady’s header touched on to the crossbar with Brian Wilson’s follow up well over.

De Girolamo flicked an effort with insufficient power after a good run and with 20 mins remaining Rowney hit the crossbar from Lufudu’s deep cross with the goal gaping. A combination of Hunt & Havern then failed to convert Sheridan’s free kick and Oyibo’s cross was cut out at the near post by Clee before almost with the last kick Brian Wilson’s 30 yard effort clipped the bar.

Team: Worsnop, Lufudu, Clee, Havern, Hunt, Field, Anghel (Walters 72), Rowney, Wilson (Tames 67), Tomsett (Sheridan 63), Slew. SNU: Woodford, Gonzales.
