The Trojans welcomed Goole FC to the Elastic FM Community Stadium as they hoped to make it five wins in five home games in 2022.

Two changes were made from the side that last 4-2 away at Hemsworth the previous week. Jack Dillingham and Sam Kay dropped to the bench in place of Tyler Dunn and Brad Jones.

The first 30 minutes of the game were very close with both sides creating some good chances, Rio Alberry and Dylan Parkin, the visitor's goalkeeper, managing to keep the scores level.

That was until Ewan Catt's hold up play created a chance for Declan Howe who's effort from 20 yards was parried into the path of Rieves Boocock, his effort saved from point blank range before Howe pounced onto the loose ball and made no mistake on his second attempt.

Staveley didn't stop there as the goal appeared to give them confidence to push on and add more to their tally and if it wasn't for Parkin, the Trojans could have had for or five at the break.

Despite his best efforts though, Parkin would concede another before the break. Tyler Dunn's tricky footwork saw him pass Josh Schofield before placing it past the visitors keeper.

The second-half seemed to be the turning point for the visitors, the opening ten minutes looked like only one side was going to score and they did just that.

Charlie Bell's challenge on Silas Valldolid-Collins was worthy of a free-kick to Goole. The resulting effort from Schofield sailed over Alberry into the top corner to get his side back in the game.

The momentum continued with Goole as they created more chances as the game progressed but to no avail.

The weather became a bigger factor and eliminated the long ball tactic that Staveley had adapted to during the second half.

But with some well executed build-up play, Howe found himself space down the right hand side and his ball across the face of goal was converted by Catt who took the shot in his stride and added to Staveley's lead.

With just minutes left of the game, a mis-understanding in the Goole defence meant Dunn was able to latch onto a loose ball Josh Dacre had let run, to double his tally for the day.

This win means Staveley move to five in five at home for 2022 and climb up to 6th in the NCEL Premier Division.

Next Saturday Staveley make the trip to 13th placed Silsden as they try and put an end to back-to-back away defeats.

Line up; Alberry, Bell (Kay), Blakeley, Oglesby, Jones, Langton, Boocok (Dillingham), Prior, Howe, Catt (Thompson), Dunn.

Subs not used; Grant, Claxton.

Man of the Match - Brad Jones.
