BUXTON FC lifted themselves out of the Evo-Stik Premier Division relegation places for the first time in four months with a 3-1 win at Mickleover Sports on Wednesday.

The Bucks raced into a 3-0 lead thanks to first-half goals from Bradley Barraclough, Mark Reed and Peter Davidson, before Alex Steadman netted a consolation for Sports five minutes before full-time.

The result, the Bucks’ fifth win in six matches, moved Martin McIntosh’s men into 17th place ahead of the visit of Bradford Park Avenue to the Silverlands on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).
