Buxton pick up 3 points in huge win away

A brace from the returning Diego De Girolamo and goals from Warren Clarke and Jason Gilchrist earned Buxton a huge 3 points away from home.

Buxton started bright with some early pressure as De Girolamo forced Cottem into a save down low.

The home side had the first big opportunity of the game with Sinclair firing a shot across goal as the Brig players tried to get it over the line but it was just to powerful.

After 25 minutes The Bucks found the opening goal of the game with an end to end counter attack. Sinclair found space and hit the post as it came out and the ball found De Girolamo who got the ball through the keeper’s touch to go over the line.

Diego De Girolamo , who has been out injured since the Morecambe FA Cup game in December had the final chance of the half dribbling with pace but hitting his shot just over the bar.

The Bucks came out all guns blazing scoring straight from kickoff as Jamie Ward played it across to Clarke who backheal into the net.

Buxton really found their stride following this getting the third goal 5 minutes later as Elliott played a through ball to De Girolamo who composed himself and grabbed his second of the game.

Substitute Heaney then came off the bench and struck a goal from the edge of the box with the keeper saving ably to stop a fourth.

The Away side weren’t done yet as Gilchrist dribbled past the keeper and calmly finished it into the net for the 4th and final goal for The Bucks.

Buxton still sit 2nd in the league but put the pressure on South Shields who dropped points. A big 9 games of the season to come!
