Buxton pick up point against playoff chasing Whitby

Whitby missed a penalty as The Bucks had to settle for a stalemate 0-0 draw.


An injury hit Buxton only were only able to name 3 subs on the bench as the gap at the top closed down to only 2 points.


The Bucks started well with Tommy Elliott winning a freekick early on. It deflected out to Ben Turner who’s dipping shot went just over the crossbar.


Whitby had the chance to take the lead in the 26th minute as Josh MacDonald was brought down in the box. Jake Hackett step up to take the penalty and fired it over the bar.


Theo Richardson in goal was called into action twice just before the half time mark. First he denied top goalscorer Jacob Hazel from close range and then coming off his line with pace to deny Hazels shot again.


In what was a half of little chances the second half did start with another penalty shout with Whitby appealing for a handball but the ref waves it away.


Fewster had the best chance for The Blues after a great bit of build up play found him on the turn and he struck through it with power as it went over the bar.


Buxton’s last chance of the half came in the last minute as Cowan came up from centre half but couldn’t find the target as the game ended all square.


The Bucks still sit top of the league and play Witton away next week.
