A BEN Bai­ley goal ten min­utes from full-time saw Hed­nes­ford Town claim all three points.

The Pit­men made the per­fect pos­si­ble start to the game when Danny Glover con­fi­dently fired home from the penalty spot after James Fitzgib­bon had been fouled.

The vis­i­tors should re­ally have drawn level in the 33rd minute but Nathan Cart­man fired his low ef­fort wide.

Six min­utes later Hed­nes­ford goal­keeper James Wren had to re­act quickly to deny Luke Parkin.

It would be Town that would end the half on top though as first Joey But­lin was de­nied be­fore Fitzgib­bon saw a shot saved in the 43rd minute.

Fars­ley would level the scores in the 55th minute when the ball fell to Cart­man who was left with the sim­ple task of fir­ing home.

The Pit­men al­most re­gained the lead four min­utes later but But­lin saw his low free-kick go inches wide of the goal.

Fars­ley sub­sti­tute Adam Pri­est­ley saw his low ef­fort clip the near post in the 75th minute.

Hed­nes­ford edged ahead five min­utes later when a deep cor­ner from Dar­ren Cam­pion picked out Bai­ley and the cen­tre half was able to turn the ball home from six yards out.
