FC Heanor carried on their fine start to the Derby Taverners Sunday Football League season by beating Pride Park 5-2.
FC Heanor versus Pride Park is always classed as a local derby. For table topping FC Heanor, this fixture could of been a potential banana skin but manager Nick Milne had nothing to fear as his team cruised into a 2-0 lead in the first half.
In the second half, it felt like Pride Park had 12 men (the 12th being the wind). However, with the newly formed striking partnership of Stephen Guilor and Jay West, FC Heanor managed to bag another five goals again this week, adding up to ten in two games.
James Poyser also managed to get onto the scoresheet with a sweet interpassing move with leading goalscorer Stephen Guilor.
With new signing Eric Woodall being brought into defence, it was surprising Pride Park actually scored two goals, such was the strength of Heanor’s performance.
One was scored by their 12th man (the wind) taking the ball wickedly past Kyle Houseman in the FC Heanor net. The other came from a penalty after a handball shout.
Next week FC Heanor take on Cue Ball reserves to try and make it three in three.
Man of the match for FC Heanor was Kyle Houseman.
