Wednesday’s other game saw a thoroughly entertaining match at Station Road as Collingham beat Staveley reserves 5-4. In appalling conditions both sides played constructive football which was a credit to both sets of players. Staveley went in front on 14 minutes through Joel Smith before George Asplin scored from the penalty spot five minutes later, the first of his four goals on the night. The visitors were reduced to ten men before Marlon Grundy put the home side ahead on the half hour, Asplin giving them a two goal cushion just before half time. Ash Bartle got Staveley’s second shortly after the restart but two in three minutes for Asplin put the game beyond reasonable doubt. Staveley battled on and Jason Carter reduced the gap on 78 minutes before the goal of the game in stoppage time saw Joe Knowles score from fully 35 yards.
