Magpies were clearly rocking for a few minutes but, to their credit, came back strongly and finished the better team. The goal scoring chances Magpies created were probably twice as many as Poynton but the final pass or shot was never executed effectively.

Magpies are now anxiously looking over their shoulder and need to record a couple of wins to move up the table.
