Buxton draw 0-0 in a stalemate as they visit Gainsborough Trinity

The Bucks got a 4th draw in a row in the league as James Hurst’s headed effort was ruled out for offside.

It was the home side that started the better of the 2 with the Buxton defence being pushed back. Joe Wilson had a burst of pace ran down the right hand side as he crossed it in and gained a corner.

In what was a very rainy downpour, Brad Grayson had the first shot of the game firing it high and wide of the mark.

Trinity continued to pile the pressure on with an effort from Nyle Blake on the left. However Josh Granite was there to clear and defend his lines.

Buxton fought back and in the 40th minute had the ball in the net. Hurst met his header and it went past the keeper with the lineman flagging for offside to keep the score at 0-0 going into the break.

The away side came into the second half firing with shots from Tommy Elliott and Chris Dawson going wide of the mark.

Jamie Ward broke using his speed only for Charlie Jemson to tackle strong and away to stop him.

In the 67th minute The Bucks also had a penalty shout as Ben Milnes fell to the ground in the box but the ref waves away the shouts.

In what was the visitors best chance of the game, Wollerton played a through ball to Grayson who shot but Granite was powerful at the back to defend.

Warren Clarke had the last effort of the game in which he drove a hard shot all the the way across but couldn’t find the back of it as it ended 0-0.


The Bucks now sit 4th in the league after 10 games played and face City Of Liverpool in the FA Cup on Saturday.
