Buxton players Sean Newton and Josh Granite guided their side to a 2-1 Derbyshire Senior Cup Third Round victory at Matlock Town on Tuesday night.

With boss Jamie Vermiglio quitting the club at the weekend, the pair have taken temporary charge while a new manager is recruited.

Buxton flew out of the traps and went ahead on 11 minutes when Diego De Girolamo shot firmly home from 10 yards from Shaun Brisley’s knock down.

He then doubled his and Buxton's advantage on 24 minutes as he raced away to net with Matlock players expecting a whistle as the ball had struck the referee en route, their protests waved away.

Matlock rallied in the second half, using all five subs, and after Scott Boden had a shot turned onto the woodwork, pulled one back on 71 minutes. Kieran Brown’s shot was blocked, but Matlock maintained the assault and Jamie Sharman rifled in a fine finish.
