Athletic rue slow start in away loss

Mickleover RBL 3

South Normanton Ath 1

Athletic dropped to third in the table after defeat at Mickleover RBL on Saturday.

The home side were quick out of the blocks and were two goals to the good inside 12 minutes thanks to strikes from David Moon on six and then Ben Stockley.

Aside from the goals it was a scruffy affair until half-time and with RBL looking the better side they led 2-0 at the break.

The second-half saw South Normanton pull a goal back on the hour mark as from a Tom Leighton corner, Danny Roberts scored with a bullet header at the near post.

It was all Normanton until a Stockley glancing header on 85 minutes sealed the win for the home side.

South Normanton host Barrowby this Saturday with a 3pm kick-off.
