Match report: Belper Town 0 Sheffield FC 3


Belper Town fell to their biggest home defeat of the season after a 3-0 reversal against Sheffield FC.

Goals from former Nailers’ player Jordan Turner and Glyn Cotton did the damage before Temi Raheem’s goal completed the scoring.

Turner opened the scoring midway through the first-half when he latched onto Temi Raheem through ball and slipped the ball past stand-in ‘keeper Charlie Mansfield.

The Nailers felt aggrieved as, minutes before the opening the goal, Tyrell Shannon-Lewis was felled in the box but the referee was not impressed and waved away any appeals.

It took the visitors until the hour mark to double their lead, when Brian Cusworth laid the ball back to Cotton who slotted the ball home from just inside the box.

Jordan Turner had a couple of good chances to add to his tally in the first-half, he smashed over one-v-one on the stroke of half-time, then he poked the ball towards goal which was cleared off of the line by Louis Keenan.

Raheem made the points safe for the world’s oldest club ten minutes from time as he collected the ball on the right, dribbled across the box and his shot trickled into the goal to sum up a miserable night for the Nailers.

Belper Town travel to struggling Loughborough Dynamo on Saturday as they look to bounce back from this small dip in form.
