Lions made to rue missed chances


Heanor Town 1-2 Selston

The Lions were made to rue missed chances as a late Scott Taylor goal ensured Selston went home with all three points.

Within a minute Heanor nearly took the lead. Jamie Sleigh’s cross hitting the crossbar after beating Smith-Eccles in the Selston goal.

The Lions didn’t have to wait too long for a goal, though. Rob Ritchie-Smith’s low free-kick was flicked in at the near post by Jamie Sleigh for his fourth goal in as many games.

Smith-Eccles nearly gifted a second Lions goal when he fired his clearance at Sleigh. Fortunately for the Selston ‘keeper, Sleigh couldn’t adjust his feet in time and shot straight at him before Smith-Eccles held Craddock’s rebound.

Selston drew level in the 34th minute with their first attempt of the game. Captain Ben Moore converted from close-range following a low cross from the left-hand side.

The second half was a much tighter affair with chances at a premium.

Heanor’s best opportunity fell to the effervescent Sleigh, who beat the nervy Smith-Eccles to a long ball but he was unable to find the net from a tight angle.

The game was settled with 11 minutes remaining. Selston producing a devastating counter-attack which was finished off by the lurking Scott Taylor at the far post.

It was harsh on the Lions who had dominated throughout the game, but just like in previous matches, they had been unable to capitalise when it mattered most.
