21st February 2015
FA Vase R5 Replay
Dunston UTS 1
Glossop North End 3
Attendance 653

Dunston welcomed Glossops North End for replay of the 5th round tie in the FA Vase after last Saturday's 2-2 draw after extra time. Both sides have changes to the line up but only one player from each side does not start, Kane for Dunston and Richardson for Glossops, with Wilson and Parker coming into the sides respectively.

Glossops got the first chance as Carey shot from 20 yards but it went well wide. Dunston quickly got into the game and pushed on, on 3 minutes an error in a defensive clearance and Bailey took advantage but his shot went over the bar. A minute later Wilson attacked on the right wing aided by Harrison who collected the ball and went to the by line and put in a cross which the Glossops defence failed to clear and Ormston was on hand to poke in a shot which took a big deflection and into the net 1-0 to Dunston after 4 minutes.

After 8 minutes a Halliday throw into the goal area found Wilson but the defence recovered to clear. On 10 a Harrison free kick was cleared as far as McAndrew whose shot was just wide and high of the target. 2 minutes later Bulford chased a long clearance and volleyed a shot on target which Hall in the Glossops goal saved. On 20 minutes Russell the Glossop left back ran at the Dunston defence and from 22 yards unleashed a shot which Connell collected. Dunston replied with Bulford crossing to Dixon who shot wide of the target.
Dunston Celebrate their only goal on the 4th minute.

Glossops were beginning to press Dunston back and on 23 minutes Moran had three consecutive attempts to cross to his players in the area the third was eventually cleared by the Dunston defence. On 25, a Glossop free kick was taken by Blackshaw which resulted in a header from Carey at the back post but the rebound went out for a goal kick. On 30 Bulford fed in Burrell whose shot from 10 yards was saved by Hall. 2 minutes later a Dixon 18 yard line header was saved from a Harrison free kick. On 33, Bailey deflected a shot from Moran just past the post. On 36, Parker picked up on another Dunston defensive clearance and Connell saved his 25 yard shot at full length pushing the ball clear.
Dunston rallied and had a shot by Halliday which was wide of the front post. Glossop replied and Carey beat Halliday and shot from a narrow angle over the bar. 2 minutes later Carey turned Gilhespy but his shot was deflected to the grateful Connell. On 43 from a Harrison corner, Ormston got in a shot which was cleared off the line and just before the half time whistle Bailey put in a cross come shot which Connell collected.

Half time 1-0

Lee McAndrew (Blue)

Glossop started well in the second half resulting in a Carey cross on 47 which Coulson did well to clear, and then on 49 Bailey had shot blocked by Halliday.On 57 a Dunston attack came from a Harrison free kick, Glossop cleared their box and broke away and only some good defence by Gilhespy aided by Harrison resulted in the danger being averted. A minute later Dixon got a header in from a McAndrew cross. On 60 Wilson did well to turn and shoot which went just past the near post, this was followed by a deep Halliday cross which Hall dealt with well. On 61 Bailey had a shot which Connell watched go past his near post followed by a Carey shot come cross which also went wide of the near post.

Glossop were lookin for the equaliser and on 70 White on as substitute collected a short free kick and shot wide, 3 minutes later, another Halliday long throw was deflected over the bar. On 76, White fed Russell who ran at the Dunston defence and unleashed a curling shot which evaded the diving Connell and just inside the back post for the equaliser. Dunston were hit hard and although they tried to rally the game stagnated for a period until the 85th minute when a Young free kick was played through straight to Connell who collected, a minute later another Young free kick was blocked by the Dunston wall and then on 90 minutes another Glossops free kick went straight through to Connell.

Full Time 1-1 extra time to be played.

Davey Coulson (No 5) Defending.
Glossops won a corner in the 93 minute and the ball was deflected over the bar from the next corner the Dunston defence failed to clear and the ball fell to Young 15 yards out who powerfully drove his shot into the Dunston net. 2-­‐1 to Glossops, Dunston were reeling but on 97 Halliday played a low cross into the area which was cleared for a corner, from the corner Dixon got in a header which went over the bar. Glossop rallied and Lugsden picked up a loose defensive ball meant for Gilhespy and advanced into the box and shot past the diving Connell for 3-1 to Glossops.
Glossops controlled the play for the remainder of the game as Dunston failed to respond and nearly scored a fourth goal as Carey had a shot which Connell tipped onto the cross bar and over. Dunston's only response was a Williams shot which went wide.
Final score: Dunston 1 Glossop NE 3 aet.
Dunston lacked the positive performance of last week despite taking an early lead and also having opportunities to increase their lead. Glossops never gave in and worked hard against a lacking Dunston midfield controlling most of the game and eventually got their reward of an equaliser. Glossops then controlled the extra time taking advantage of the Dunston defensive errors and score twice in the first half and Dunston unable to get back into the game reluctantly accepting defeat. 
Dunston Man of the Match: Dan Halliday - Dan tried hard but on a day when several Dunston players did not turn in their usual performances was always fighting a losing battle, Liam Connell was also committed but Dunston lacked the ability to press home their early lead and made too many elementary errors both in attack and defence.
