Only one place to start in our round-up of yesterday’s Toolstation NCEL action, and that’s at Division One bottom side FC Bolsover, who overcame deficits twice to claim their first win of the season, 3-2 over Glasshoughton Welfare at Langwith Road – and Manager, Matt Chatfield told TBG that his side’s fighting spirit went a long way towards taking those three points, writes Colin Muncie.
Kyle Willis put the visitors in front after just four minutes, but Jack Warwick levelled for Bolsover after eleven to send the sides in level at the break in front of the crowd of 25. Gracjan Klimczak restored Glassy’s advantage on the hour, but Warwick (62 minutes) and a Brett Lucas penalty (64 minutes) clinched a famous win for the hosts.
Matt told us that he didn’t feel that his side were necessarily on top of their game. “Finally, we win,” he sighed. “I have been saying it’s on its way but to be honest we weren’t at our best today – not by a long way, but I don’t care, it got us off the mark. We had to do it the hard way, I thought, by coming from behind twice but to then go on to win is a credit to the lads.”
“We rode our luck today and for me the turning point was when they were 1-2 up and they missed a golden opportunity,” Matt told us. “We then went up the other end and 5 minutes later we went 3-2 up.”
“Today is all about the lads; they could have capitulated by now after all these games without a win – but they haven’t; and credit to them all.”
