A well-taken goal in each half, both headers, gave Buxton a 2-0 win against visitors Gloucester City on Tuesday February 20th and moved them up the Vanarama National League North table to 13th place. It is a six-games unbeaten run in all competitions.

Buxton were positive throughout, with Jake Wright opening the scoring after 11 minutes through a brilliant header and Ben Andreucci making the game secure in the 63rd with an equally good headed strike. Wright also hit the woodwork and it was Andreucci's first goal for the club. The downside to the match in this injury-ridden season was the loss of both scorers, limping off. Full Match Report HERE

Gloucester's head coach Mike Cook said it was "men against boys and the Bucks were bigger, stronger and quicker."

His opposite number Craig Elliott for the Bucks could be much more upbeat. Craig said: "We are on a great run and you can see the confidence among the lads. Wright and Andreucci feed off each other and caused havoc in the opponents' box. It was a big disappointment to see them pick up injuries.

"There were more injuries but we've got a strong squad and others are always ready to step in and do a strong job for us, just as Curtis Weston and Jake Hull did tonight. Both of them made the kind of telling contributions very good players can offer."

On Saturday, the Bucks travel north to Darlington for a 3pm kick-off. Darlington are struggling in the league, second bottom, but include highly experienced players in their line-up and are undoubtedly better than the current table suggests.
