FRICKLEY Athletic dropped into the Evo-Stik Premier Division relegation spots at the weekend after suffering a 3-0 loss at fellow strugglers Buxton.

The Blues were second best throughout and, after soaking up first-half pressure from the hosts, fell behind on the stroke of half-time when Mark Reed opened the scoring.

Peter Rinkcavage’s men looked brighter on the restart but Reed doubled Buxton’s lead just before the hour mark to leave the Blues with a mountain to climb.

Bradley Barraclough added a third to rub salt into the Frickley wounds and leave them in the thick of a relegation battle having lost their last three league matches.
