North Ferriby United Step Up Play-off Push

North Ferriby United will travel to Oxford City tomorrow buoyed by a weekend victory over Worcester City that boss Billy Heath hopes will launch their play-off push.

The 3-0 triumph, thanks to goals from Tom Denton, Danny Clarke and Danny Hone, means the Villagers are just four points off the Conference North play-off places.

Heath said: "We played very well as a team and always looked the likely winners.

"We scored three good goals and defended well. Our midfield controlled the game.

"It was a good result and it will hopefully launch our attack on the play-off spots."

Worcester were well organised defensively, but lacked punch up front.

Ferriby's defence looked strong with loan signing Sam Topliss fitting immediately into the back-four, with the midfield again dominant going forward.

Worcester's Aaron Brown had the first chance on 10 minutes, but headed Sean Geddes' free-kick over.

It was another 25 minutes before the visitors threatened again.

Ferriby took control, but did not really force Worcester keeper Jose Veiga into a save during the first half.

The Villagers thought they had won a penalty after 14 minutes when Denton was brought down by Veiga as he went round him. Fortunately for Worcester, Denton had already been adjudged to be offside.

The goal Ferriby deserved came after 33 minutes when Jason St Juste floated a cross to the far post and Denton rose highest to place a downward header into the net.

Worcester almost equalised after 44 minutes when a cross was deflected on to the bar.

However, Ferriby's second goal arrived in the 59th minute when Clarke volleyed home Denton's flick on.

Worcester's chances disappeared with the sending-off of Daniel Nti after 72 minutes for his second yellow card.

Five minutes later, the game was all but over as Hone headed home a Russell Fry corner.

Curtis Bateson was unlucky not to score in the final 10 minutes, having one shot superbly saved by Veiga and a second hitting the post.
