Just two games left for fourteenth-placed Dronfield Town after their 4-2 home win in Toolstation NCEL Division One last night, a result which leaves opponents FC Bolsover just two points clear of the relegation zone. It was a clearly a fine game at Stonelow Road, which left Bolsover Manager Adam Valente frustrated to be leaving empty-handed, writes Colin Muncie.
It was even-steven at the interval, after Ben Copestake had given the visitors a second- minute lead as most of the 61 punters were still getting comfortable. Dronfield levelled after 33 mins through Thomas Fairweather. Into the second half, and Oliver Perry restored Bolsover’s lead after 58 minutes, but Town hit back almost immediately through Mark Fereday (59 and 64 minutes, taking his season’s tally to an impressive 25)-and Callum Mawbey clinched the win with six minutes left.
Adam told the Bootiful Game “Wow -a game of 2 halves! They way I saw it we were better in the first half and they wanted it more in the second.The wind didn’t help -but it’s same for both sides, although they definitely dealt with it better than us. I am going to blame the official tonight; she did alright In the middle but again a massive decision went against us – I can’t really say more than that.”
Adam knows that the chips are down going into their last couple of matches “I’m very disappointed not to come away with a least a point 2 he admitted.” We need at least something from the next two games -otherwise we’re leaving it to fate”.
