Stocksbridge PS Res 2 Handsworth Parramore Res 1
After two defeats Steels reserves got back to winning ways grinding out a good result at the Look Local stadium against Handsworth reserves.
Steels started the game well and created a couple of chances, however Handsworth
came into the game and took the lead with their first effort on goal,this could have shook Steels confidence after their last two results but they reacted well and kept Handsworth under pressure, the pressure paid off just before the break when a good ball over the defence by Webster was latched onto by top goalscorer Townsend who lobbed the out rushing keeper.
Steels came out well for the second half encouraged by the goal and had the lions share of the possession but couldn't find a breakthrough.Crofts had three good chances from set pieces but failed to beat the keeper.
Home keeper Bond had to be alert to tip over a good effort from Bravo for the opposition.Steels put on fresh legs to try and find a winner and again chances came and went, Whitham replaced the impressive Bruce who had run himself to a standstill and another sub Louis Shaw linked up well for Whitham to convert with a fine shot from a tight angle to give Steels the three points and a move back to third in the table.
Steels reserves are back at the Look Local stadium on Saturday 9th March against second placed Dodworth FC 3pm kick off.
