SUFC 3 Burton 2 

The Mighty Shrimpers had to win this game to avoid the dropzone, Nick Prawnby met up with Steve Whelk who had driven from Nottingham with his mate Paul Reedfish in the Eater sunshine

First half and Blues are up for it against a good Burton side and it’s Coxy crossing for Mantom to crash in for 1-0 18mins to settle some nerves. Ox has to be smart against a tricky Burt forward line but Blues, backed by great home support, make halfo 1-0.

Second half and no slacking for the Blues as Coxy crosses for Bunny to make it 2-0 on 48. But Burt don’t lie down and Brayhorse nets to bring it to 2-1. Blues are still busting a gut though and sub Dieng Dong makes it 3-1 with a header on 77. Burt make it nervy with a goal on 86 but cheered on by a noisy crowd, the Blues make it to the end for a vital victory.

Fantastic effort by the Blues players who deserved their win, Coxy MOTM surely.

Blues leap out of the bottom four but it’s Rochdyke next for another hard game
