Steels win derby game


Sheffield FC 2 Stocksbridge 3

Steels recorded their second away win in three days, following a trip to Daventry on Saturday, they made the short journey to Derbyshire for a local derby the Sheffield FC. Steels were by far the stronger of the two teams in the first half, and found themselves two up after just 11 minutes. Joe Lumsden scored the first on seven minutes after the Sheffield defence were caught square, Lumsden found himself with plenty of room and time to shoot past Conor Mitchell in the home team's goal.

Four minutes later ex steels defender Stuart Ludlam tried to allow a through ball back to the keeper, which resulted in total confusion between both the centre halves and Mitchell, Scott Ruthven pounced on the ball and had an open net to score one of the easiest goals you will ever see.

Just before the break Sheffield were handed a chance to get back into the game through a penalty which former steels striker Alec Denton scored easily. Then within two minutes steels were given a penalty for a trip inside the area, top scorer Rory Coleman increased his tally sending Mitchell the wrong way.

The second half by comparison was a boring affair with hardly any chances at either end until Denton scored on 88 minutes to give the home side a glimmer of hope, the four minutes added on for injury time and hard work for the steels supporters as Sheffield tried to get a late equaliser.

Thoroughly deserved three points for Stocksbridge who now have a home game against an inform Romulus on Saturday, admission for this game is a promotional 'pay what you want' kick-off is 3.00pm
