Buxton lose late on at Brackley

Danny Newton scored late on to snatch all three points in the last minute of the game with Buxton losing 2-1 on the road.

Both teams started well with passing moves but weren’t able to find the final ball.

Brackley started to control the game more after the opening 10 minutes with a Ricardo Calder cross from deep coming into a dangerous area.

Danny Newton had the first shot on target which Dearnley collected well.

Buxtons first effort of the game came from Sam Smart as Tommy Elliot laid it off to him and he hit a shot towards the bottom corner that Lewis in goal got down to save.

It was the hosts who took the lead in the 30th minute Calder smashing the ball in from close range with The Bucks struggling to clear the ball away.

George Carline then tried his luck from distance with a low driven shot that went narrowly wide of the post.

Alfie Bates headed over from the 6 yard box with Calder getting another cross into him.

Buxton ended the half strong Minihan hitting a shot wide of the mark and having a penalty shout in the last minute with Elliott being dragged down.

The Bucks started the second half with Elliott cutting the ball in from out wide and hitting a dipping effort at goal.

Substitute Crawford was almost through on goal with The Buxton defence standing strong to get rid of the opportunity.

Kirby then had his attempt blocked in the box by a Brackley defender.

The Bucks equalised in the 82nd minute after a corner whipped into the box found Shiels who fired it in to make it 1-1.

Substitute Diego De Girolamo then had a freekick effort brilliantly saved by The Saints goalkeeper.

The Bucks however were unable to pick the ball back up after a lose ball in the middle as it came over the top to Newton in the 94th minute to fire it in and give the hosts all 3 points.
