KIDSGROVE GAME MATCH REPORT
Jamie Green returned in goal for Brigg Town against Kidsgrove Athletic after a lengthy lay-off through injury and Chas Fisher was on the substitutes' bench, along with Adam Lee and Sam Downey.
The visitors played the whole game one player short but still put up a firm resistance and in Liam Shotton possessed a striker with pace and skill, WRITES BOB TAYLOR.
Inside the first minute of the game, Shotton took possession on the right wing and went past Scott Hellewell before sending a fierce shot into the side netting from an acute angle.
Brigg settled quickly and took an early lead after five minutes when JOSH DAVIES was given time and space to surge forward from midfield before striking a shot on target which beat goalkeeper Gary Goodwin before hitting the crossbar and falling into the back of the net behind him.
Then a right wing corner kick from Josh Davies was played across the penalty area but a free kick was conceded. Brigg added a second goal after twenty minutes when LIAM DICKENS made a strong forward run from his own half before laying the ball off for DANNY BUTTLE to drive it into the bottom corner of the net.
Kidsgrove reduced the arrears ten minutes later when Jamie Green was beaten to the ball at the edge of his penalty area and LIAM SHOTTON sent a looping shot into the back of the unguarded goal.
Kidsgrove grew in confidence and went close to equalising the score when Andrew Kinsey got to the goal-line on the left but his strike at goal was blocked and resulted in a corner kick, which was cleared.
A second similar attack resulted in another shot blocked on the Brigg goal-line.
After a disappointing last fifteen minutes of first half play, Brigg introduced Adam Lee and Chas Fisher as subs for Josh Davies and Martyn Gee.
They gradually took more control of the second half with the efforts of their opponents being subdued through tiredness.
After the Brigg defenders failed to clear an early left wing corner kick properly, Andrew Kinsey sent a shot narrowly over the bar.
Then a free kick for Brigg was played into the goal area but scooped away by Gary Goodwin from Liam Davis' shot.
The goalkeeper made another good save to clear the ball after a neat piece of combination play between Alex Flett and Ryan Paczkowski.
Another fierce shot from Liam Dickens was beaten down by Gary Goodwin and the ball was next clear off the goal-line from Ryan Paczkowski's header.
The third goal came ten minutes from time from the penalty spot after Liam Davis was knocked to the floor from behind. RYAN PACZKOWSKI struck a firm spot-kick into the roof of the net, giving Gary Goodwin no chance of making a save.
In the closing minutes, Liam Dickens went close to adding a fourth goal after receiving a return pass from Liam Davis inside the penalty area but the ball was deflected over the crossbar.
Brigg Town: Green, Archer, Dudley. Davies, Hellewell, Gee, Davis, Dickens, Paczkowski, Flett, Buttle; subs: Lee (46), Downey (81) and Fisher (46) for Davies, Buttle and Gee.
