Sheffield FC 2, Leek Town
LEEK Town almost had to settle for a point from their trip into Yorkshire in the BetVictor Northern Premier League, after letting a two-goal lead slip from their grasp.
Blues looked to be on their way to a third successive league win with goals from Tim Grice (21′) and Jake Twyford (46′).
However, the hosts responded two quick goals from Rory Coleman (64′) and Marc Newsham (67′) to draw level.
Blues boss Neil Baker’s response was to bring on Jessy Bavanganga, Rob Stevenson and Lewis Short for Josh Agbozo, Aaron Bott and Twyford.
And the introduction of fresh legs in the heat paid off with Chris Baker netting the winner for Blues in the 78th minute, which takes them up into second in the South East table.
Leek Town: Roberts, Agbozo, Keenan, Grocott, Harrison, Chadwick, Baker, Reeves, Grice, Twyford. Subs: Walford, Bavanganga, Kirby, Short, Stevenson. Attendance: 328.
