Jason Gilchrist scored his 10th goal for the club with his winner at Gloucester on Tuesday night

Although not one-sided it was a first half marked by Gloucester City battling to beat Theo Richardson, but Buxton's goalkeeper won through with honours, pulling off save after save. After the break, a headed Jason Gilchrist goal after 53 minutes swung the game firmly behind the Bucks, impressive 1-0 winners, a third Vanarama National League North success in a row.

Josh Granite, Declan Poole and Jason Gilchrist started the game, as manager Jamie Vermiglio made changes from Saturday's Emirates FA Cup triumph, although emphasising that "nobody was dropped, it was just a case of freshening things up". Diego de Girolamo returned to the bench, Connor Kirby missed out through suspension and Luke Burke has ended his loan spell from AFC Fylde.

"It was our best league win of the season," Jamie said, "considering the distance we travelled, difficult road conditions and awful weather, then up against a top-half team."

He added: "Our shape was good, chances were created, there was abundant energy in midfield, the back line was brilliant and Theo backed it all up to make sure we gained another clean sheet. I was proud of the lads and they deserve to share in that pride.

"We're not getting carried away, but the form is good and confidence high. Now we have to maintain that and continue to climb the table."

Director of football David Brindley said: "A massive thanks to those fans who faced up to the terrible traffic and weather, a credit to our club. See you at the Tarmac Silverlands on Saturday, when Banbury United come calling."

The Banbury match on Saturday is a first ever meeting between the two clubs and kicks off at 3pm. It is pay at the gate.

The Emirates FA Cup 2nd Round draw on Monday night gave the Bucks an away trip to Ipswich Town, the biggest fixture in the club's history, certainly since the FA Cup 3rd Round tie at Doncaster Rovers 70 years ago. Manager Jamie Vermiglio attended the draw at Wrexham. The fixture will be played on the weekend of the 26th of November but no fixed time has been issued by the FA yet.
