BAMBER BRIDGE 3 STALYBRIDGE CELTIC 0

THREE fan­tas­tic sec­ond half goals saw Bamber Bridge run out big win­ners.

Micky Taylor’s side started the brighter and Danny Forbes flashed a well-struck ef­fort from dis­tance just wide.

As the half wore on the game be­came more scrappy – Dar­ren McKnight hit a fierce free-kick that was well­saved by Jake Turner on the half-hour mark.

And just be­fore half­time McKnight whipped in a peach of a cross that Matt Dud­ley glanced ag­o­nis­ingly wide.

Five min­utes into the sec­ond half Ali Wad­de­car worked space and al­most found the top cor­ner with a curler.

Mo­ments later that was for­got­ten though when Chris Mar­low skipped round three tack­les, worked the ball onto his right foot and, from the edge of the box, ri­fled the ball into the bot­tom cor­ner.

With just over 70 min­utes gone Brig then took their next chance in em­phatic style. Dud­ley flicked the long ball on, Wad­de­car latched on to it and raced through to fin­ish clin­i­cally into the bot­tom left cor­ner.

And sub­sti­tute Paul Daw­son added the ic­ing on the cake.

With the vis­i­tors com­mit­ting bod­ies for­ward, Wad­de­car broke, cut in­side and laid the ball off to Daw­son, who took one touch be­fore rat­tling in the third to seal backto-back vic­to­ries.

STAR MAN: Chris Mar­low (Bamber) ENTERTAINMENT: ★★★★★
