Eagles wings are clipped by leaders Buxton


Buxton Town 3, Brampton FC 0

Brampton lost ground on league leaders Buxton Town as they were on the wrong end of a 3-0 reverse.

The match started evenly with debutant Josh Goodhand hitting a dipping shot which grazed the crossbar and then Dom Parsons brought out the best of the Buxton keeper.

Buxton took the lead through an excellent 20-yard drive low into Eagles keeper Craig Barker’s bottom corner.

Buxton began to get on top in the match and grabbed a second just before half time as a corner wasn’t dealt with properly and the ball found its way past the Eagles defender on the line into the far corner.

Brampton made changes at half time and pushed an extra man forward which seemed to get them back into the match but the solid Buxton back four couldn’t be beaten in an uneventful second half before Buxton sealed the points with a 90th minute penalty.

Brampton host Furness Vale on Saturday in hope to get back onto a winning trail. 2pm kick off at Brookfield School.
