Bucks push into the playoffs with win against Kings Lynn

Buxton came out 3-1 winners against Kings Lynn as they made the play off spots for the first time this season.

The hosts started on the front foot with Adam Crowther getting the ball into the box and it glancing the head of Jordan Ponticelli. Another headed effort came only a couple of minutes later with a diving effort from Ben Stephens coming into the hands of Max Dearnley.

Buxtons first opening of the game came from Diego De Girolamo putting the ball through to Eoin McKeown and he ran through before crossing it in the air to Jordan Burrow who fired it over the bar.

Zaine Franicis-Angol then on his weak foot picked the ball up on the edge of the box and tried to curl his shot into the top corner just missing out and hitting the bar.

A well worked move from Kings Lynn almost had The Linnets ahead before the break with Stephens yet again getting on the end of a cross this time it going narrowly over the bar.

Buxton started the half on the front foot and it wasn’t long before they gained the lead. A corner ball from Xander McBurnie came into the box and was headed back across by Max Hunt into the incoming McKeown to gain his first goal for The Bucks.

Kings Lynn responded well with Emmanuel Oke forcing The Bucks keeper to tip the ball over the bar.

A thunderbolt strike from Max Hunt meant the Bucks hit the crossbar for the second time in the game.

The Norfolk side did get back on level terms in the 68th minute as Ponticelli played the ball all the way wide to Stephens and then to Kian Ronan before Joshua Barrett picked up the ball faked an effort then hit a low shot that came to Cameron Hargraves who smashed it low into the far corner.

And Kings Lynn had a spell of good pressure after this with both Ronan and Stephens coming close.

But it was The Bucks who were able to fire themselves back into the lead. De Girolamo got the ball 30 yards out and let out a great striked effort into the top corner for his 99th Buxton goal.

Scott Boden sealed all three points off the bench scoring with a lobbed effort in the last minute of the game to make it 3-1 and push The Bucks into the playoff spots.
