    FULL-TIME: City 1 (Harrison 29) South Normanton 0
  • JORDAN Harrison's point-blank finish handed City a deserved 1-0 victory in a fast-paced contest.
  • Harrison got on the end of a Demetri Brown cross following tidy build-up play involving Aaron Birch, Luke English and Adam Osbourne.
  • The hosts were bright, crisp and quick in the first half and had flashes of inspiration in the second but could not add to their lead.
  • There was just one wobble at the back in the first 45 minutes when Nyeko Sinclair's slip ended with Richard Hanslow going within a whisker of nudging in at the far post with the score at 0-0.
  • The Shiners defended well for the most part and then advanced late on, screaming for penalties for what seemed like harsh handballs, when Nat Kelly collided with Martin Smyth to win a header in the box and then for a tackle seconds later that referee Mitchell Cartwright was on hand to judge as being on the edge of the box.
