Denaby’s Chances Affected
Bolsover 2 Denaby United 1
Denaby United’s chances of league distinction were lessened when they lost 2-1 to the league leaders, Bolsover, at Bolsover.
Although the victors, Bolsover had a hard struggle and in the second half, Denaby were on top.
Two goals behind at half-time, Denaby started the second half in a business-like manner, but were dogged by bad luck and failed to score although they went close on many occasions.
Lionel Smith gave a good showing and cramped the style of Thompson.
Bolsover’s top scorer SIVITER and CROWE scored for Bolsover while GIBBS replied for Denaby.
