Ferriby got back to winning ways in the FA trophy away at frickley on Saturday. This was a valuable win because Ferriby went out of the FA cup last weekend and a cup run is always important.
Frickley started the better and after two minutes they almost opened the scoring but Dean Lisles was quick to clear the ball off the line and Ferriby survived the scare. Ten minutes later in the 12th minute Ferriby had their first proper chance of the match when Ryan Williams cross shot was just tipped over the bar.
This was developing into a very even game but Ferrivy did have the next chance in the 27th minute when Danny Clarke’s drive went straight at Tom Woodhead in the Fickley goal. Frickley where having the better of the possession and in the 31st minute the ball struck a Ferriby arm in the box and a penalty was awarded. Gavin allott fired the penalty straight at nickin who got a hand to the ball but it hit the bar and came down over the line. Frickley 1-0 Ferriby.
Ferriby got back in the game very quickly. Eight minutes after the Frickley opener Ferriby were awarded a penalty of their own. Luke Jeffs was penalised and sent off for elbowing Gary Bradhshaw and Ryan Williams stepped up and fired the penalty home Frickley 1-1 North Ferriby.
Ferriby were now well on top with the man advantage and almost went to the break ahead but Chris Bolder was denied by the Goalkeeper in the 41st minute. His shot was brilliantly saved. HT Frickley 1-1 Ferriby.
Ferriby dominated the second half because of the one man advantage and Frickley rarely threatened. Mark Grey had Ferriby’s first chance of the half when his 55th minute shot was deflected for a corner.
Ferriby were dominating possession but not doing a lot with it until the 80th minute when Bradshaw had a great chance on the edge of the box but his shot flew high over the crossbar.
It looked like Frickley were frustrating Ferriby and a replay was on the cards, that all changed however in the 85th minute when Nathan Peat collected the ball on halfway, surged forward 30 yards and smashed a 20 yard screamer into the bottom corner. Frickley 1-2 Ferriby.
Ferriby kicked on and scored another two minutes later. Ferriby won a corner and a beautiful Fry delivery was tapped in from three yards by Bradshaw who deserved a goal for his work effort all match Frickley 1-3 Ferriby.
The icing was applied to the Ferriby cake barely a minute later when sub Jack Muldoon beat three defenders on a brilliant jinking run before rounding the keeper and slottin home Frickley 1-4 Ferriby. This goal rounded off a fantastic last ten minutes for Ferriby who advance to face Buxton in the FA trophy third qualifying round.
Billy Heath will be pleased Ferriby are back to winning ways but perhaps disappointed it took Ferriby 40 minutes to score in the second half even though they had an extra man. Ferriby will hope to build on this and kick on in the league over the next few matches.
