The Non-League Football Paper - - NPL PREMIER - By Neil Mc­Gowan

BAS­FORD United recorded their fifth suc­ces­sive win but were made to fight all the way by bot­tom of the ta­ble North Ferriby, who be­lied their posi­ton with a spir­ited per­for­mance.

Jor­dan Har­ri­son forced a save from Keiran Pre­ston on 29 min­utes in the vis­i­tors’ first at­tack and Dan Ni­chols headed in from the cor­ner.

Six min­utes later Bas­ford were level, Nat Wat­son head­ing in Jack Thomas’ cross.

The sec­ond half was just thirty sec­onds old when Har­ri­son headed Ferriby back in front.

Bas­ford pushed for­ward and were de­nied by a num­ber of fine saves by Ferriby keeper Lewis Ex­all, who pro­duced a stun­ning save to tip over Lewis Carr’s header then saved the fol­low up from James Reid.

Bas­ford lev­elled again on 68 min­utes, a good move by Liam Hearn and Zak Good­son ended with James Wil­liamson turn­ing Good­son’s cross into his own goal

The vis­i­tors were re­duced to ten with four­teen min­utes re­main­ing as Dan Ni­chols saw red for a rash chal­lenge.

Two min­utes later, Bas­ford were ahead for the first time through a su­perb header from Hearn, meet­ing Liam Bate­man’s cross.

In the fi­nal minute Bas­ford wrapped up the points, Nat Wat­son head­ing in Deon Meikle’s cross at the far post.
