Shay­men forced to suf­fer away mis­ery

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL - Ebb­s­fleet:

NA­TIONAL LEAGUE: FC Hal­i­fax Town suf­fered a mis­er­able away day to for­get as they lost 4-0 at Ebb­s­fleet.

Town were brought crash­ing back down to earth with a bang af­ter the high of their FA Cup first round re­play win over More­cambe on Tues­day with goals from Michael Cheek, Chris Bush and Danny Ked­well see­ing Ebb­s­fleet ease to vic­tory.

Cheek opened the scor­ing in the 24th minute de­spite ther be­ing a hint of hand­ball af­ter he was found with a long throw-in.

But if Town had rea­son to feel ag­grieved at Ebb­s­fleet’s first, there was noth­ing they could ar­gue about for the hosts’ sec­ond goal, Bush pro­duc­ing a ter­rific 41st-minute free-kick from 20 yards that flashed into the top right cor­ner.

Any hopes of a sec­ond-half fightback were ex­tin­guished when Ked­well scored from the spot in the 48th minute, Town’s mis­ery be­ing com­pleted when Cheek nod­ded in from close range in the clos­ing mo­ments.
