Evostik Northern Premier League Premier Division

North Ferriby United  1  Buxton  1

Grant Black's stunning 35-yard drive with the last kick of the match salvaged an unexpected point for Buxton. The game was well over the additional tome indicated when Black struck.

Buxton had started well and pegged Ferriby back for the first ten minutes without creating clear chances.

Ferriby gradually began to take control. Jack Muldoon's shot on the turn was saved by Steve Collis. The keeper was relieved shortly after when Liam King's chip just missed the top corner.

Collis was then again in action to turn a Danny Clarke shot for a corner following good work by Muldoon and Gary Bradshaw.  Ferriby finally grabbed the lead they deserved after 30 minutes. Gregg Anderson rose above the defence to head down Russell Fry's free-kick past Collis.

Buxton replied with Kieran Lugsden being well-stopped by Anderson's determined challenge. Buxton almost equalised but  Paul Foot cleared a goal-bound shot off the line.

The second-half was a more even affair but neither side created much in the way of chances.
 Ferriby's Morris went close with a header early in the half.
 
Buxton responded with Mark Roberts sending a header just over the bar.
Ferriby's Steve Gardner then sent a 20 yard drive wide.

The half was rather scrappy with neither side gaining any real momentum

However, the best chance of the half fell to Buxton's Kieran Lugsden who shot wide with time and space to have found the target.

Then with the game deep into added time, Black came-up with his equaliser.

Buxton will have been delighted with their point but for Ferriby it will feel more like a defeat after conceding such a late and dramatic equaliser.
