Mickleover Reserves secured their first away points of the season, with victory a 3-1 win at Linby Colliery last Saturday.
Starting line-up: Josh Maher, Mason Hoult, Brandon Ferron, Harry Atwal, Jared Cholerton, Zach Sandu, Josh Powell, Bobby Battisson, Kai Moore, Sam Tomlinson, Fin Ryder. Subs: Josh Bull, Joe Sellors, Toby Smith, Mason Tudgay.
Having gone 0-1 down after just three minutes, when Ibrahim scored from the penalty spot, Mickleover came fighting back to equalise through Moore after just nine minutes later.
It was still 1-1 as the half time whistle blew, but the Mickleover youthful enthusiasm and skills came to the fore as the second half got underway.
Although the home side tested the Mickleover defence, wasted chances proved decisive, as second half strikes from sub Tudgay and Tomlinson, secured al three points for Sports youngsters, who are away again next Saturday at AFC Normanton.
