Ferriby gained their third win on the trot on Tuesday night against Worksop and thoroughly deserved the victory. After a shaky start to the season Ferriby have picked up their game and things are looking up especially if Tuesdays victory over Worksop is anything to go by.
The game started sluggishly with no real chances until the 22nd minute when Gary Bradshaw had a shot saved by the Worksop goalkeeper. Two minutes later Worksop almost opened the scoring when Bruno Holden shot right across Adam Nicklin’s goal.
3 minutes later Bradshaw had another chance for Ferriby when he went one on one with the goalkeeper who did well to gather the ball at Bradshaw’s feet.
3 minutes later however in the 30th minute Ferriby took the lead through ever improving striker Ryan Kendall. Kendall dribbled his way past a defender and slipped the ball under the on rushing goalkeeper.
The game slipped into a slumber for 15 minutes and the only incident was the unfortunatly serious looking injury to Luke Shiels after he clashed with Nathan Peat. There was no malice involved with both players challenging for the ball but Shiels came off worst and was carried off on a stretcher.
The match exploded again in the 44th minute when Gary Bradshaw got the goal he deserved and doubled Ferriby’s lead. A scramble from a corner resulted in the ball dropping to Bradhsaw who fired home from 16 yards.

The game then had a flat period with Ferriby looking very comfortable on and off the ball without creating many chances. The final chance of the match fell to Bradshaw in the 92nd minute when his sharp shot was parried and cleared by Bastock.
