The Non-League Football Paper - - NPL PREMIER - By Mike Bar­ton

TWO sides with re­cent good form met at the Tar­mac Sil­ver­lands Sta­dium but a first-half blitz by the hosts sealed the points against Stafford Rangers.

Rangers were first to threaten on 19 min­utes when Bux­ton keeper Theo Roberts tipped over from Port Vale loa­nee Harry Benns af­ter good work from Josh Green.

The Bucks opened the scor­ing just two min­utes later with Jude Oy­ibo fin­ish­ing off af­ter a fine pass from Cal­lum Chip­pen­dale.

Ten min­utes later it was two nil when Oy­ibo chased down a lost cause on the right and he squared for Diego De Giro­lamo to net from close range.

On 39 min­utes it was three with De Giro­lamo find­ing the net again with aplomb af­ter good work from man-of-thematch Alex Brown.

And it was Brown him­self with the fourth on 42 min­utes af­ter Brad Grayson had won the ball and crossed su­perbly for the young Bux­ton left back to sweep home.

There were chances for both sides in the sec­ond half with Oy­ibo hit­ting a post and Ash Young blaz­ing over be­fore Stafford pulled one back 64 min­utes when Benns crossed from the left for Green to hit home his sec­ond.

But the Bucks held on to ex­tend their un­beaten run to eight games.

STAR MAN: Alex Brown (Bux­ton) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
