Lions MOM Lee Stevenson
Style icon, Brett Peel
Peel hard at work!
Lee Stevenson was standing in for Whitehead, but as Kay left the field, he was switched to the centre of the defence. Stevenson, along with Brett Peel worked their socks off to keep Gresley out, and in the second period when Gresley's star man Brian Woodall turned on the style big-time, they were magnificent.
Woodall at work!
On 49, Gresley keeper Gary Hately was almost made to pay for dropping the ball at the feet of Heanor no. 11 Lee Askham, but the winger miscued horribly and his shot went into the trees at the back of the goal.
Peel headed just over after 53 minutes after he had connected well with Hodgson's long throw, but it was at the back that Peel excelled, heading away cross after cross as the visitors upped the pressure after dropping Woodall a bit deeper, giving him chance to run at the Lions defence time and time again. There will be match reports on the Gresley and Heanor sites - I was too busy watching the game to take a copious amount on notes.....F-T 0-0
Programme - none left, but Frosty gave me his
Tuesday -- Heanor again, this time away at Gedling MW ....looking forward it!
