Steels get draw in Festive fixture


Stocksbridge Park Steels 1 Chasetown 1

In a game that Steels virtually dominated from start to finish, Manager Chris Hilton will probably be disappointed with just the one point. In terrible conditions Steels took the lead after 10 minutes when a corner was headed on by Matt Reay and Liam McFadyen (pictured) turned in at the back post.

David Reay in the Stocksbridge goal had an early scare when a long ball was headed on by a Piggon but luckily for the home side went just wide.

Right Winger Nat Crofts was lively throughout the game, and shot just wide after some good build up play by the Steels.

Steels were restricted mainly to long range efforts in the second half, Harrison Biggins came close and moments later Scott Ruthven dragged his long range shot just wide. The best chance of the second half fell to Joe Lumsden, whose header went straight across the face of the goal from 10 yards out. Nat Crofts should have done better at the back post but he miscued his shot which went high and wide.

But just when the Steels looked like they were going to get all three points, Mitchel Piggon scored a good goal from just outside the area, to give Chasetown a valuable away point.

Steels now travel to Gresley on Friday night and then face Sheffield FC away on Monday.
