Ilkeston FC 1 Matlock Town 3

Ilkeston put in a disappointing display as play-off chasing Matlock took the points on Saturday.

The visitors took the lead on 25 minutes when Danny Holland netted from close range following a mistake at the back, and David Haggerty made it 2-0 five minutes later when a corner wasn’t cleared.

Kane Richards quickly pulled a goal back from a narrow angle moments later but it was 3-1 by half-time when another Ilkeston error led to Shaun Tuton lobbing Ross Etheridge in style.

No further goals followed in what was a poor spectacle overall, Matlock deserving their win.
