'It's top versus top in cup clash'


If the draw could have been scripted then it couldn't have been written any better when it pulled together the current leaders of the Black Dragon Badges, North and South divisions.
Delayed from the initial Saturday date it didn't disappoint either with both teams representing themselves very well from the outset. The first goal however came from the 'wizard of the wing' Billy Whitehead who after hurtling down the flank, cut inside and fired past Craig Rhodes.
Ashley Radmore was replaced on 31 minutes after concerns of a recurring injury and Jordan Hendley, returning from injury took his place.
Josh Scully continued his prowess in front of goal when he netted on 37 minutes giving the Millers a welcome lead at the interval.
Upon the turn around though it was Ricky North who took advantage of a lapse in concentration and punished our back two with a goal. Five-minutes later and the old Jordan Hendley was now beginning to turn on the style and with Whitehead on the other side it was always going to be a struggle for the visitors to contain them. It was Hendley who, on 51 minute, pulled the ball back from a seemingly hopeless angle and the grateful Grant Mitchell made no mistake in scoring his eleventh of the season.
It was a favour returned just eight-minutes later when this time Mitchell turned provider and Hendley himself made no mistake.
On seventy-five minutes there was a double substitution that saw the return of Josh Brown from a potentially career ending injury and Billy Brooks who both replaced Jake Johnson and Tom Suter respectively.
The game couldn't really ever be considered over with the visitors not accepting defeat and pushing forward to get something more out of this cup-tie.
However the 'Bruce and Pallister' in the form of Murcott and Ordidge always did enough to prevent any further celebrations for the always Peaceful Warriors and it was into the third round for Clay Cross.
POTM was award to Billy Whitehead
