Brigg Town FC - beaten 5-0 at Sutton Coldfield on Saturday - look to bounce back at home to Leek this weekend
After going in at half-time on level terms, there was no suggestion that Brigg Town FC would be completely outplayed in the second half by a rampant Sutton Coldfield team on their artificial surface, WRITES BOB TAYLOR.
Ryan Paczkowski was unavailable through injury and was sorely missed to lead the attack.
Sutton started well winning three corner kicks in the first three minutes but the dangerous Kristian Ramsey-Dickson eventually struck a shot over Miles Fenty’s cross bar.
Brigg began to get more into the game and Liam Davis cut inside from the right wing before getting a shot on goal which Lee Evans gathered comfortably.

Danny Buttle progressed down the left wing to win a throw-in and then a corner kick but Lee Evans again collected the cross with ease.
From a second corner kick swung in by Josh Davies, Lee Evans punched clear.
Liam Davis then created an opening but his shot was blocked and knocked away for a corner kick, which was cleared.
Next, Danny Buttle and Paul Grimes created an opening for Liam Dickens but his strike at goal was saved. The home team came close to scoring mid-way through the half from a left wing corner kick but Paul Ashton was in the right spot to kick the ball off the goal line.
Another left wing corner kick from Josh Davies was met by Scott Hellewell but he headed the ball over the bar.
In the last minute of the half, Sutton had another good chance after Greg Archer’s attempted pass back fell nicely for Mark Danks but his final shot went past the far upright of an open goal.
Sutton started strongly in the second half and early chances for Luke Chapman and Kristian Ramsey-Dickson both went over the cross bar.
The vital first goal came in the fiftieth minute when DARYL TAYLOR was left unmarked on the right wing to collect a ball played across the pitch to him and he drove it into the back of the net from an acute angle twelve yards out. Brigg lost total composure and the home team completely dominated the play from then onwards.
The second goal came after an hour’s play from a short corner on the left, which caught the defenders ball watching, and DARYL TAYLOR seized a simple opportunity to hit the back of the net again from a few yards out.
Poor defending let in KRISTIAN RAMSEY-DICKSON for a simple third goal in the seventieth minute.
Brigg searched for a goal to get back into the game and Lee Evans was alert to tip a shot from Liam Dickens over the bar but that was the only time he was tested.
Further late goals from LUKE CHAPMAN and MARK DANKS in the last nine minutes completed the rout and left Brigg completely humiliated.
Brigg Town: Fenty, Ashton, Dudley, Davies, Hellewell, Archer, Davis, Dickens, Holden, Grimes, Buttle; subs - Broughton(68), Fisher(61) for Buttle and Davis, Gee, Downey and Zand not used.
This coming Saturday afternoon, Leek Town will be the visitors to Brigg in a re-arranged league fixture, but they too are pressing for a place in the play–off positions and will expectedly provide stiff opposition.
