Win and loss in cup for FC Heanor

FC Heanor have had a win and a defeat in their latest two matches in the Kilburn Cup.

In the first match they romped to a 4-0 win over Codnor, making it two wins out of two in the Kilburn Cup up to that point.

They went in front after four minutes when Nathan Poyser lobbed the Codnor keeper with a flicked back header. Carl Robshaw had a great game, cutting out any danger while man of the match Alex Prior, Ashley Hargreaves, Eric Woodall and Nathan Poyser ran rings round the defence down the left.

Stephen Guilor added a second and third early on in the second half, Dexter Cole then rounded off a comfortable win rounding the keeper and slotting home.

This was then followed by a 3-2 defeat on Sunday at the hands of Hurst Farm.

Two penalties decided this hard fought match in temperatures reaching 30 degrees on the pitch.

Hurst Farm took the lead after ten minutes with a penalty. Jay West soon tapped home from around five yards to equalise.

Hurst Farm were soon on their back foot again as Brett Julian sent a looping shot from the right that lobbed the keeper and nestled into the bottom left hand side of the net to make it 2-1 to the home side.

In the second half, after a rash challenge the referee awarded Hurst Farm another penalty which they converted. As the game drew to a close, Heanor pushed more and more men forward. However after a long ball their offside trap was broken and Hurst Farm slotted home at the near post, winning 3-2.
