In the first half most of the attacking was done by Sports but they missed several chances.

Lee Challinor was particularly unlucky to see a header hit both posts.

In the second half, Sports eventually broke the deadlock when Andy Bradley arrived late in the box to tuck home a cross and ten minutes later he added his second with a header in off the far post.
