Liversedge nilled as Heanor go to summit

LIVERSEDGE’S struggle in the NCEL Premier Division continued on Saturday as they were soundly beaten 3-0 by Heanor, who moved to the top of the table.

The hosts troubles began as early as the fourth minute when a cross was headed beyond scrambling Sedge keeper Lewis Sykes before a desperate goal-line clearance fell to the feet of Jones and he made no mistake from less than a yard away.

The visitors continued to dominate and after seeing a free-kick rattle the crossbar they doubled their lead on the half-hour mark. This time it was Nathan Benger who benefited from a well-placed cross, tapping in from close range.

Liversedge saw their frontman Kieran Corley test Heanor’s keeper on 34 minutes, but his effort from 15 yards saw the experienced stopper palm the ball to safety.

With the hosts devoid of any creative ideas it was Heanor who had the best chances, but Jones rushed his effort on 63 minutes, firing with his left foot effort narrowly over the crossbar.

Deakin did have to save from Corley when the forward turned away broke through one-on-one and attempted to smash the ball low under the keeper.

Heanor’s Paolo Piliero found himself in space on the edge of the area on 84 minutes and his low and hard strike beat Sykes in the Sedge goal.
