The Seasiders achieved their first victory at The Silverlands since 2012’s ‘great escape’.
Whitby had the better of the game throughout and deservedly led through Matty Tymon’s opportunist strike on 17 minutes.
Town continually worked the Bucks’ Danish stopper Jan Budtz, who couldn’t get to Tymon’s header later in the half, but the effort flew just wide.
Sadly for the Seasiders, the impressive Tymon picked up a hamstring injury and made way for James Risborough, moments before half-time. The second midweek in a row when the ex-Guisborough midfielder has been called on before the break.
Whitby continued their onslaught after the break as Budtz blocked superbly from the lively Davey Carson with Kyle Fryatt also coming close.
As Buxton surged forward, Town almost struck on the break but Anthony Hume’s attempt was blocked on the goal line. However, Chris Hardy’s men kept their composure and won it two minutes into injury time when Risborough struck his first-ever competitive goal for the club.
Whitby Town: Bland, Martin, McWilliams, Bythway, McGoldrick, May, Snaith (c), Carson, Tymon (Risborough 45), Hume, Fryatt (Maloney 70). Subs not used: Weledji, Bullock, Dixon (GK).
