Droylsden 0-1 Widnes

A goal twelve minutes from time by James Steele was the difference between these two teams in what was a game of two halves

Droylsden had their chances in the first half. Jack Kay put through and forcing Scott into a save with his legs Harry Noren looked dangerous on the right turning inside the defence only to see his goal bound shot blocked.

At the other end Rhian Heelawell forced a save from Chris Thompson who also saved from Anointeo Chukwu after a mistake at the back.

The visitors took control in the second half Chukwu going close after another mistake at the back by Droylsden and the striker on loan from Salford City had a second chance slicing wide.

Chances were few and far between for the Bloods, Dom Smith doing all the hard work on the edge of the area before pulling his effort wide while Kay was put through on goal and seemed to found the keeper before going over for which the referee showed him a yellow card for diving.

But it was ex Blood Shaun Holden’s cross which set up the goal for Steele in sevenrt eight minutes which sealed the three points for the visitors and the striker went close to a second deep into injury time, his shot narrowly past the post.
