Saturday, 25 August 2012

A giant killing proved elusive for Stones as Gresley progressed at Lincoln Road.

Michael Nottingham headed the visitors in front from a right wing James Jepson corner after 19 minutes with Rob Spencer extending Gresley's advantage five minutes later with a header from a Dean Oliver.

Michael Nelson's, clipped by Jordi Gough in the box, converted a 33rd minute penalty to bring Stones back into contention.

Late in the first half Sam Bettinson's header clipped the post.

Oliver's curling shot from a Spencer cross a minute past the hour sealed Gresley's victory.

Andy Buckle was denied a second home goal by Gough's clearance off the line.

Blackstones: Lee Crockett, Matt Porter, Matt Simpson, Andy Boome, Mark Hackett (Jacob Smitheringale), Luke Hunnings, Nicki Young (Andy Buckle), Danny Barker (Liam Buttery), Sam Bettinson, Michael Nelson, Ben Porter.
