Tivvy came home from deepest Leicestershire with all three points following an excellent victory and impressive performance‚ running out comfortable winners over a tricky Shepshed Dynamo side with goals from Kevin Nancekivell and man-of-the-match Phil Everett.

Paul Edwards rescued Tivvy in the 11th minute‚ denying Shepshed striker Lucas who was clear on the Tivvy goal. Dominic Richardson was beaten by Shepshed defender Carr´s last-ditch challenge in the 25th minute‚ but Tivvy took the lead a minute later.

Pete Varley held the ball near the corner flag‚ found Dominic Richardson who moved across the area before laying it nicely back for Steve Daly. Steve´s shot could only be parried at full stretch by ´keeper Choppen but Kevin Nancekivell was on hand to follow up and turn the ball into an empty Shepshed goal. Tivvy kept up the pressure‚ forcing Commander in the Shepshed defence to head Steve Daly´s gioal bound shot behind for a corner.

In the second half Shepshed enjoyed more possession and went close when Cox´s far post header went back across the face of the goal‚ but Tivvy´s rear guard were strong and Paul Edwards was in fine form. It took Tivvy until the 65th minute to get their second. After a move involving four players‚ Luke Vinnicombe broke down the right flank and crossed well for Phil Everett to control the ball‚ pick his spot and fire the ball between theShepshed ´keeper and his near post.

In the final minutes of the gameTivvy continued to apply pressure‚ keeping the Shepshed defence at full stretch with Phil Everett going very close to getting his second goal.
