57457 spectators arrived at The Furnace, where weather conditions were pretty good for football. Jari Henttonen was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Rafael Arcos and Oliver Emil. The derby had been the talk of Greater Manchester all week and fans of both teams could be seen throughout the stadium. Dentbridge started off with a 4-4-2 lineup. Lineup: Hughes - Duggan, Sângeorzan, Hansen, Raskin - Savén, Warner-Davies, Hooper, Dunk - Ræstad, Lee.

A 4-5-1 alignment was the formation of choice for Vibes. Starters: Miquelina - Leonard, Thorne, Bokholt, Windwehr - Zhelev, Änäkäinen, Smith, Paterson, Göransson - Jabin.

Vibes immediately set off using their skill at pressing their opponents. Dentbridge broke through on the left 18 minutes into the game, with K. Dunk firing in from an acute angle to give the home side a 1 - 0 lead. The referee showed Dentbridge's H. Ræstad the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Vibes were close to putting the equaliser away after 28 minutes as the opposing defence lost control of the ball to N. Windwehr in a scuffle towards the left of the goal, but in the end the ball was cleared over the dead ball line. D. Zhelev was the first to reach the corner kick, but his header was blocked by the keeper. However, Vibes's P. Paterson managed to get hold of the rebound and tucked the ball into the empty net. 1 - 1 Dentbridge took the lead after 35 minutes as a result of K. Warner-Davies's peach of a shot from the right hand side of the box - placed beautifully in the top corner. 2 - 1. Having been awarded a free kick in an awkward position after 36 minutes, Dentbridge did not go for a shot but instead fired the ball hard into the 6 yard box. After a brief tussle with his marker, H. Ræstad was able to power the ball past the keeper to make the score 3 - 1. After this, you could see that the players of Dentbridge were more interested in killing time than scoring more goals. 3 - 1 was the score after the first half. Dentbridge had most of the ball, with 53 percent of possession.

Having turned the direction of play quickly, the Dentbridge counter attack ended as the ball carrier was brought down violently by a defender after 49 minutes. The resulting free kick was a flat shot into the area just in front of the keeper. However, the defence were on their toes and did not allow the opponents to reach the ball. B. Bokholt of Vibes received a yellow card after 64 minutes for unsportsmanlike behaviour. Things were deteriorating for the away team as Dentbridge scored another to make it 4 - 1 after a left side attack resulted in a goal for S. Hooper after 65 minutes. After 69 minutes, J. Änäkäinen replied with a fantastic free kick and the ball went in off the bar. 4 - 2. Given a free kick in a difficult position after 77 minutes, Dentbridge tried a variation that they had practised in training. The kick was sent into the area just in front of the keeper. However, the defence were on their toes and allowed no space for a finish. Vibes breathed new life into the game with an attempt to reduce the lead after 78 minutes, but the home side's defenders cleared the ball off the line, after a long shot coming in from the left rebounded off the crossbar. Dentbridge enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 54 percent of possession.

Dentbridge's best player was H. Ræstad. A. Duggan on the other hand, had a terrible day. The most dominating Vibes player was without a doubt N. Windwehr. B. Bokholt turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 4 - 2.
