Integro League Cup second round

Glossop North End 2-4 Droylsden


Droylsden have progressed to the next round of the Integro League Cup after beating Glossop North End 4-2 at Surrey Street on Tuesday.

With both sides struggling in the Evo-Stik West this season, the game looked set to be a tight affair. However, the Bloods started the game the better side and their efforts were rewarded in the 15th minute. Andrew Hollins headed home from a corner to give the visitors the lead.

Glossop have showed signs of improvement since Peter Band and Lloyd Morrison took charge at the end of September, so it came as little surprise when they hit back and levelled matters in the 27th minute. After intercepting a squared pass, Dominic Marie rifled an effort into the top corner from the edge of the area.

It took less than three minutes for Droylsden to reassert their lead. Ollie Ford slotted into the bottom corner past former Droylsden ‘keeper Russ Saunders.

Droylsden were unable to take a lead into the half-time break, as Glossop equalised through Pete Boyle in the 38th minute.

However, Droylsden showed their superiority in the second-half and went 3-2 ahead by the 50th minute. Lewis Doyle finding the top corner.

And the game was put to bed in the dying stages. Phil Marsh notching to send the Bloods to the next round.

In other news, Droylsden’s league clash against Ramsbottom United, scheduled for Saturday, has been postponed due to the Rams’ involvement in the FA Trophy.
