Maltby Main (p)1-1 North Ferriby

North Ferriby FC exited the NCEL league cup after a penalty shoot-out defeat after a 1-1 draw at Maltby Main. Ferriby made nine changes from Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Armthorpe Welfare. The only players starting being Jamie Forrester and Jackson Jowett.

It was the hosts who started brighter and good work from Waud won Maltby a corner. The resulting corner caused the Villagers problems with a last-ditch clearance the difference between the hosts taking the lead.

The Villagers had their first chance when after some good build-up the ball landed at the feet of Jamie Forrester, whose first-time strike went wide of the goal. It was the hosts who took the lead when a long throw delivered by Cutts was met by the head-on Waud who’s header looked into the top corner and past Exall in the Ferriby goal.

The hosts had the first chance of the second half and it was from another set-piece. A corner found its way to Hough after a flick on but Hough headed the ball goal-bound but a point-blank save from Lewis Exall kept him at bay.

Malty Main kept putting pressure on the Villagers and a smart save low from Lewis Exall from a Waud free-kick helped keep the score 1-0. Main put even more pressure on and a good turn in the box from Gibson resulted in the attacker getting a shot away which was turned behind for a corner.

The Villagers equalised in the last minute when a long throw by Josh Dennett went all the way through the crowd in the box and found Jackson Jowett at the back post who tapped home to pull level. Ben Leyland received a red card in stoppage time for a late challenge when looking to stop a Maltby Main counter-attack.

The game went to penalties with the score level after 90 minutes. The hosts were victorious after misses from Danny Buttle and Levi Tarbotton gave Maltby Main a 4-2 victory in the shootout.
