Promotion Confirmed


Millers manager Wayne Scott made one enforced change from Saturdays excellent performance against Bedworth United bringing in Matt Newton for the injured Alex Troke who joined Danny Elliot, also injured on the sidelines.

Newton did not let him down with a hard tackling display in central midfield alongside the excellent Eddie Schonecker.

Josh Rae and William Mellors-Blair were inventive and a constant threat up front and to a man Carlton were solid defensively.

Stocksbridge started the strongest and could have had a 2 goal lead before Carlton came bouncing back with Josh Rae hitting the bar, before Carlton took the lead just before half time with a Stocksbridge defender credited with the final touch.

The second half was end to end, Jack Steggles made 2 outstanding saves in the Millers goal but at the other end Carlton missed guilt edged chances, with Mellors-Blair losing his footing after being set up by Rae and Danny Gordon being brilliantly denied by the Stocksbridge keeper.

Stocksbridge also hit the woodwork and had a goal disallowed at the death for offside, while Kevin Lusamba should have sealed the game for Carlton after wonderful approach play from substitute Stovell and Mellors-Blair, but he put his shot inches wide.

It was pulsating stuff and Pitchero TV and Notts non league TV both got their monies worth in front of a disappointing crowd of just 71 at Stoke Lane.

Wayne Scott however will be delighted with 4 points from the 2 home games and the 2 clean sheets, along with the general performances of his team who deserve praise indeed as they move 11 points clear of the drop zone after a fine home performance to a man, on what was a thrilling midweek contest, despite being settled by only the one goal.
