Buttle would grab his second and his sides fourth. A Josh Dennett throw-in went into the area and wasn’t dealt with by the Yorkshire Amateur defenders. This allowed Danny Earl to play the ball across the goal where Buttle poked the ball into the goal.
North Ferriby boss Chris Bolder summed up his thoughts after the game, “first half, for various reasons we weren’t quite at the races. We had a good chat at halftime, we expressed to the lads what we expect, we weren’t amazing in the second half but we were much improved. To come away with another clean sheet, to score some good goals again, we have to be happy again with that”.
