Match Photos are HERETwo second half goals ensured Garforth Town secured their first consecutive Toolstation NCEL Premier Division victories under head coach Graham Nicholas.
Logan McDaniel and C J Lyle both found the net in the last 20 minutes of the tense game at Wheatley Park.
Garforth moved up to seventh in the Premier Division table and Nicholas was delighted.
“It is a very important win as when we beat Bridlington and then drew with Tadcaster I felt a bit deflated because when you win you want to keep that momentum going,” he said.
“I said to the lads tonight that it was important that because beat Lincoln 5-0 on a Saturday that we kept the momentum and confidence going.
“In the first half we started well in the first 15 to 20 minutes but then we starting playing to their game by hitting it high up in the air and that’s not our game. Our game is playing it to feet and we did that and it was well-deserved.
“It was a close game. We kept it tight in the first half and then looked at areas where we could threaten them and then made some changes and we got our rewards.”
Garforth also lost Nick Black after 28 minutes and the striker is definitely out of Saturday's home game with Lincoln Moorlands Railway after straining his ankle ligaments.
Garforth offered little in front of Staveley’s goal and most of the action took place in the home side’s half.
But, despite Staveley’s dominance, Garforth goalkeeper Karl Martens was relatively untroubled until first half injury-time. Martens spilled Wafula’s 25-yard effort before making a superb save to deny Jake Vernon’s rebound attempt.
Garforth had one more scare 11 minutes into the second half when Vernon’s header had to be cleared off the line by Andy Hawksworth. But, that is when Nicholas gambled on a tactical switch.
The move paid dividends as American McDaniel pounced on goalkeeper Dan Tollerfield’s poor clearance. The out of position Tollerfield sliced the clearance and McDaniel was waiting and carefully placed the ball into the empty net from 25 yards.
And Nicholas added: “We have got to make it nine points out of nine.
