With three minutes to go on Tuesday night, it looked like FC Bolsover had rescued a point against Glasshoughton Welfare but a Sam Pashley 90th minute goal broke their hearts – leaving them nine points from safety.
Manager Matt Chatfield was left deflated after the late winner. “Well I wish I was coming on here to say how the run is still going, but tonight after not playing a game for 17 days it really showed.”
“We didn’t deserve anything out of the game and were poor throughout. First-half was up there with one of the worst I’ve seen in a long while, but only 1-0 down, I’d take it.”
“Start of the second-half we looked like we were going to start playing but it wasn’t to be, then to top it off we got a man sent off which really topped the night off, but then out of nowhere we score to make it 1-1 with 5 minutes to go, and I thought I’d take it.”
“But it wasn’t to be and we let them walk through us in the last minute to win the game. Full credit to Glasshoughton, great management staff and players who deserved to win. But we go again on Saturday into a must win game, and I’m sure we will see a different Bolsover team then!”
While Joint Glasshoughton Manager Lee Vigars was pleased with the win which lifted Welfare up to 10th in the table. “Hard work tonight but we knew it would be. Bolsover never gave us a second in possession and we needed to be really switched on, both mentally and physically, to eventually come away with the points.”
“Chances at both ends were at a premium as most of the contest was fought in the midfield, but when they did present themselves we managed to take a couple. Simmy put us in front with his first for the club and Pash has popped up with the winner in the last minute – his second in as many games.”
“Credit to Bolsover, they never stopped, but as soon as they went down to 10 men we thought we’d get a few more chances and that proved right. Three more points on the board and we now look forward to the trip to Shirebrook on Saturday.”
