The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK NPL PREMIER - By Tony Tom­lin­son

AFTER spurn­ing three golden chances Bux­ton had to set­tle for a share of the spoils ver­sus a re­silient Bar­well.

It was a batlle from the first minute un­til the last as both sides pressed for­ward for all three points in a tight and tense af­fair.

The first miss came in the 23rd minute when Liam Hardy latched on to a long ball and from the by line pulled back a fine pass for the on-rush­ing Joe McGee but he blazed a 15 yard shot over the bar.

Ten min­utes later the Bucks did find the net with Luke Hins­ley’s com­posed fin­ish fol­low­ing a de­fen­sive er­ror.

Just prior to half time the vis­i­tors equalised as Eddie Ni­se­vic prof­ited from good work by exDerby striker Cal­lum Ball to net from 15 yards.

Early in the sec­ond half it was Hardy who missed a good chance for Bux­ton when put through by Joe Magee and his team mates went close when Joe Maguire, from an Andy McWil­liams free kick, headed across the face of goal with two col­leagues un­able to touch home.

Bux­ton’s last good open­ing came late on when sub­sti­tute Sam Smith, rac­ing clear of the de­fence, shot low and wide.
