North Ferriby got off to the perfect start against Stockport County when they recorded a 1-0 win at Edgeley Park. Ferriby then moved on to their first competitive game at home since last seasons playoff exit to Guiseley. Newly relegated Hyde were the visitors. Hyde won only one game last season but they could still be a force in this league this season having dropped down a level.
Ferriby began the game quickly and took the lead after just 6 minutes. Nathan Jarman found Liam King in the box. King hit a ferocious shot that cannoned off the underside of the crossbar and into the net to give Ferriby the perfect start. 1-0
Ferriby then dominated proceedings and looked dangerous every time they attacked. Jarman almost created another goal soon after setting up the first. He won the ball after battling with the Hyde fullback and sent in an accurate cross that found the head of Emerton whose diving header was well saved by the Hyde goalkeeper.
Jarman seemed to be involved in everything and his interplay with liam King led to King having a shot from just inside the area that was straight at the Hyde keeper who saved easily. Ferriby doubled their lead after 25 minutes. Dan Clayton received the ball on the left wing and sent in a looping cross that was met at the far post by a towering Tom Denton who couldn’t miss from a couple of yards out.
Hyde had their first chance a few minutes later but Nicklin was alert to the danger and saved well. Hyde then had another half chance soon after but their striker could only shoot wide from a narrow angle. This was the final major incident of the half and Ferriby went in with a well deserved 2-0 lead.
Ferriby started the second half in a similar fashion to the first and were quickly on top. The first chance of the half fell to Tom Denton. Dan Clayton sent in a great cross from the left and the cross was met with a header by Denton. The header looked goal bound but the Hyde goalkeeper did brilliantly to tip the header over the bar.Denton had another headed chance soon after. This time a cross was sent in from the opposite wing by Emerton and Denton headed just wide.
The game then lost a bit of intensity with Hyde offering little to worry the Ferriby defence. Liam King appealed for a penalty which wasn’t given by the referee although to most it looked like a clear foul on the Ferriby midfielder. Danny Emerton was then cynically fouled when he looked to be clean through on goal. Jarman headed the resulting free kick wide of the post. Ferriby continued to have several half chances which were mainly falling to Tom Denton who could easily have score 4 or 5 goals on the night.
Denton finally got the second goal that he deserved during stoppage time. Nathan Jarman provided his second assist of the evening when the crossed to Denton who scored his second headed goal of the evening to put the icing on the cake for the villagers. 3-0
This was a very good performance by Ferriby. They dominated the game throughout and always looked comfortable. The defence was hardly troubled and some of the attacking play between King, Denton, Jarman, Clayton and Emerton was top class. Emerton in particular caused the Hyde defence constant problems and Nathan Jarmans good attacking work provided assists for Denton and King. Two games, two wins, Two clean sheets. Ferriby fans couldn’t ask for any more.
Man of the Match (Ferriby): Danny Emerton (Very difficult decision and could have gone to several Ferriby Players)
