Droylsden 2-3 Leek Town

Three goals in three second half minutes decided this game in quite appalling conditions at the Butchers Arms.

With the scores level at half time, Sefton Gonzales scored from the penalty spot to put Droylsden 2-1 ahead nine minutes into the second half but a minute later Leek were level when Sevenson broke on the right for Jordan Johnson to convert and then took the lead from the penalty spot through Tim Grice a minute later.

Grice had given Leek the lead early in the first half after Maguire had crossed and dominated much of the first half,only kept at bay by Chris Thompson in the Bloods goal, saving twice from Sevenson and once from Grice

Against the run of play Droylsden levelled just before half time, Liam Caddick drilling home from close range after Rigby had centred.

In driving wind and rain, Droylsden had chances to level in the second half, Dylan Smith should have done better when Rigby got to the byline only to poke his effort wide and Luke Daly saw his effort go inches wide of the near post minutes later.

But the Leek defence held out and with the Bloods pressing forward looked the more likely to score on the break as the second half continued.
