At the other end home keeper` Tom Palmer got down well to save from Ed Asafu-Adjaye but on twelve minutes the home side were close to taking the lead when Sam Whittall’s powerful header was brilliantly palmed away by Joe Welch in the visitors goal.

The only goal of the game arrived in the 24th minute when the home side failed to deal with a ball into the box and Matthew Bateman nipped in to hook the ball home.
