After seeing a 1-0 lead slip into defeat in the dying minutes of Saturday's home game against Blyth Spartans, hard working Buxton took a Bank Holiday point at Telford United, thanks to a 25-yards free kick by acting skipper Sean Newton in the 43rd minute.
After Monday's 1-1 draw, the Bucks have six points from their opening six matches. Kettering Town are the visitors to Tarmac Silverlands this Saturday, kick-off 3pm, with the opportunity to start climbing the table. The injury situation is still worrying, however. Josh Granite, Tom Elliott, Chris Dawson, Mace Goodridge, James Hardy and Jack McKay were missing for the Telford encounter, then Jason Gilchrist had to be substituted during the first half.

There were few chances for either side in the Telford draw. Bucks' manager Jamie Vermiglio summed it up: "A point on the road is a good point, against a decent team. We had some good moments and Newt scored a fantastic goal. The lads dug in after the break to ensure the positive result. It was gritty stuff.
"It's no secret that we need to get in a couple of extra players, particularly with the injury list. Meanwhile, I couldn't ask for more from the group of fit players we have."
On Saturday's home defeat, Jamie said: "Injuries again, but we had some great moments and Jason Gilchrist scored a with a terrific header. It was disappointing to give away a penalty in the last few minutes, because we had deserved more from the game."
The Bucks are next in action this coming Saturday with a home match against Kettering Town with a 3pm kick-off.
