Kidsgrove 0 - 1 Belper Town

Last night's result was a good one and a win was much needed as all but two of our rivals in the top six won. Retford didn't have a league game and Stocksbridge drew at home. It's getting very tight at the top now.

Didn't make the trek myself - after work, a 65 mile drive on a wet and windy evening is not my cup of tea, so the Duchess and I followed progress on the Belper Forum. Texts were sent from the game to our mate Joey and he kept the Forum updated as news came through.

It was nail-biting stuff! Jon Hobson was sent off, Kidsgrove could have had four goals apparently and we nicked it with a headed goal in the second half then held on with 10 men until the final whistle.

Next game is Goole at home on Saturday - a game we would expect to win but as the last week as shown, there are no "gimme's" in this league and we suddenly seem to have a very "thin" squad!
