Archer’s on tar­get for the Pit­men


The Non-League Football Paper - - NPL PREMIER - By Scott Smith

TWO sec­ond-half goals saw Hed­nes­ford Town pick up their first home league vic­tory of the sea­son against a Work­ing­ton side who re­main point­less on the road.

The open­ing ex­changes were quiet but it was Work­ing­ton who had the first chance when Ja­son Walker shot wide af­ter break­ing through in the 14th minute.

Although Hed­nes­ford forced a suc­ces­sion of set­pieces they could not find an ef­fort on tar­get mean­while goal­keeper Josef Bur­sik saved from Con­nor Tin­nion’s low ef­fort.

The vis­i­tors saw a good chance come and go when Daniel Wordsworth planted a header over the cross­bar while Bur­sik was called into ac­tion again right on the stroke of half­time to deny Kieran Maguire.

Hed­nes­ford started the sec­ond half stronger and af­ter Dan Cock­er­line and Josh Crad­dock went close they took the lead when Matt Dodd picked out Lewis Archer who slide home at the far post.

The lead was dou­bled in the 65th minute when Hed­nes­ford were awarded a penalty that Jed Davies con­verted.

Walker had the vis­i­tors’ best late chance but the hosts held on.

STAR MAN: L Archer (Hed­nes­ford) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
