A goal feast shared by Max Conway (41 minutes), Connor Kirby (58), Brad Jackson (68) and Tommy Elliott (85), interrupted only by an opposition penalty kick early in the second half, gave Buxton a 4-1 victory and all three points away to Bradford (Park Avenue) on Saturday (March 25th).
The win sees the Bucks move up to ninth place in the Vanarama National League North with 55 points, stretching their unbeaten run in all competitions to 14 games, all but one of them in the league. It was a polished, forward-facing performance in front of a 750 crowd swelled by loud and appreciative travelling fans.
There was just one change in the starting line-up from the previous match, Sam Osborne selected in place of the injured Warren Clarke. Full Match Report HERE
Team manager Craig Elliott was understandably delighted with the Bucks' progress, happy that his team is playing so well. He said: "We looked good for long periods and overcame a couple of weaker spells, really showing our class towards the end of the game.
"The lads have been remarkable with their attitude, taking on board a lot of information. On top of that, they look sharp and fit."
Buxton's next match is against Spennymoor Town at home this Saturday, kick-off 3pm. They ran out 1-0 winners thanks to a Connor Kirby goal in October, so there will be hopes for a league double, the third of the season. Spennymoor are two points and three places below the Bucks in the table, but with two games in hand.
