Swanwick PR reserves suffered their first defeat of the season at the hands of a strong Hucknall Town.

With many players missing for the club, the reserves fielded a patch up side, however, the players present put up a good fight throughout.

The home side were the first to take the lead, with a Mark Waghorn header being parried out to the oncoming David Robinson, who gladly headed home.

This lead was soon levelled when Keiran Beales, struck a long range effort that eluded Jermaine Judson in the Swanwick goal.

Hucknall didn’t take long before they took the lead, when a well delivered corner from Romeo Mugadza, snuck its way straight into the roof of the net. Swanwick were heading into a slump, with no luck coming their way in the run up to the half-time whistle.

This lack of fortune was confirmed when Mark Poyser shot took a deflection which wrong footed Judson, to give the away side a two goal cushion.

And, subsequently David Robinson hitting the woodwork after some direct build up play.

Swanwick came out fighting in the second half and a change in the midfield seemed to stifle the away side and their possessive style of play.

This pressure was rewarded with 20 minutes left on the referee’s watch, when a Phil Gregory free kick was met with a thunderous Gaz Ellis header. S

wanwick continued to press in search of an equaliser but it was a step to far for the home side as Hucknall held out for the three points to move into second place in the table.
