Droylsden 3-1 Newcastle Town

Two goals in the space of two second half minutes from skipper Michael Brewster capped a superb first half performance from Droylsden with the visitors unable to deal with the home team’s slick passing game.
The Bloods made one change to the team that started the abandoned game against Glossop two weeks ago bringing newly signed striker Reece Webb Foster in place of Phil Marsh who dropped to the bench.
After controlling much of the game, Brewster put the Bloods in front from close range after 24 minutes and doubled the lead from the penalty spot two minutes later after Steven Rigby had been felled in the area.
Liam Caddick had a great chance to make it three ten minutes later, his first strike saved well by Johnson in the Town goal and then putting the rebound over the bar from close range.
Town made a double substitution at the start of the second half which saw heavy rain and strong winds play a huge part in the play.
The Bloods continued to create chances in the heavy conditions,Steven Rigby shooting inches past the post from close range.
At the other end Town’s best chance of the game saw Cole’s header come back off the bar.
Sefton Gonzales went close for the Bloods , shooting inches wide after Antoine Clarke’s good work on the right.
With seven minutes left the visitors pulled a goal back through Jordan Cole with the home side appealing for offside but the home side sealed it two minutes later, Johnson’s clearance falling at the feet of Luke Daly who took his time before finding the back of the net.
