Buxton went down 2-1 at Scarborough Athletic last night (January 11) in a tight match that could have gone either way. That was a fourth defeat in a row for the injury-affected Bucks but determination on the field continues to be matched behind the scenes.
Director David Brindley said: "Things aren't running for us in the way they did earlier in the season. Every team suffers from injuries but we've had more than our fair share. Those who are fit have battled on and it was a stunning strike from Warren Clarke to equalise after 19 minutes. There's a great togetherness and we'll turn the corner, at home to Warrington on Saturday, we hope.
"All credit to Scarborough, who looked an altogether different side to the one that we trounced 5-1 a few weeks ago and were spurred on by their enthusiastic crowd."
The Bucks gave debuts to centre-half Dan Cowan and midfielder Ryan Taylor. Dan was a junior at Buxton, then Macclesfield, and joined earlier this month from Chester. Experienced Ryan Taylor, in from Colne, has experienced the Premier League with Newcastle United and other former clubs include Hull City and Wigan Athletic. He represented England at Under-21 level.
