Buxton make it 5 unbeaten with 0-0 draw against Gloucester

In a game with not a huge amount of chances The Bucks drew 0-0 against Gloucester to stretch the unbeaten run to 5 and 3 clean sheets in a row.

Brandon Smalley had the first effort of the game with a dipping half volley going wide of the mark. He then Laid the ball back to Joe Hanks whos long range strike also went wide.

Buxtons first opportunity came from Diego De Girolamo as a deflected shot came into the hands of the hosts goalkeeper.

In the 29th minute Danny Wright was charging through on goal with an over the top through ball before Luke Shiels tracked back well to win the ball and clear away.

The Bucks last chance of the half came from De Girolamo’s freekick on the edge of the box which was attempted to be curled round the wall but hitting a Bucks player.

Wright had one last opening before the half time whistle after Harry Pinchard cross on the left hand side met the head of the incoming target man who couldn’t direct his header on target.

With 2 very contrasting styles Buxton had a penalty shout with Tommy Elliott running through the middle of 2 players and a player coming across taking him out in the box before the referee waved the shouts away.

A Sam Osborne shot from long range was spilled by the goalkeeper. And the last chance of the game fell to Connor Brown who was playing an unfamiliar position of left wing back as his deflected shot went out for a corner in the final minutes.
