SHEFFIELD FC maintained their 100 per cent home league record with 1-0 victory over Brigg Town last night.

Substitute Matt Glass had only been on the pitch five minutes but was in the right place at the right time to steer home from close range for his first goal for the club after the keeper palmed a shot away.

Stocksbridge Park Steels were made to pay for missed chances as they went down 2-0 at Frickley Athletic with both goals coming in the second half after Steels had dominated the opening 45 minutes.

Jack Muldoon fired an early chance over the bar after being put in on goal by Anthony Lloyd, while Andy Ring sent another effort just over from the edge of the box after Mark Ward had chested the ball down. Stocksbridge did have the ball in the net just past the half hour mark but Chris Glarvey’s effort was ruled out for pushing.

Frickley broke the deadlock on 72 minutes, Pete Knox making a run across the box before hitting a low shot that was deflected out of the reach of keeper Ben Scott. Four minutes later the hosts grabbed a second to seal the points, substitute Brad Grayson running clear after beating the offside trap to place a shot wide of the keeper Stocksbridge went close to pulling one back inside the last five minutes when new signing Anthony Tansley hit the bar on the stretch.

Matlock Town came away with a point from a 1-1 draw at high-riding Hednesford Town.
