Missed chances cost AFC Hayes away to Potters Bar

Despite playing well & dominating the game for long periods a series of missed opportunities cost AFC Hayes dear away to Potters Bar on Saturday.

AFC Hayes made a spirited start to Saturdays match at Potters Bar & immediately put the hosts under pressure with some excellent passing & ball possession.It was therefore no surprise when on 8 minutes they opened the scoring when from a Romayne Thomas cross NICKE KABAMBA steered the ball past Kamurasi in the home goal.0-1

AFC Hayes continued to look the more dangerous & after 16 minutes only a fine save from Kamurasi prevented AFC Hayes from increasing their lead when a Jake Cass cross was headed goal bound by Shennan only for the keeper to tip the ball over the bar.

Three minutes later Dan Bailey met a corner superbly only to see Kamurasi again prevent a goal with another fine save.

Unfortunately as often happens a failure to take your chances when on top often comes back to bite you & on 24 minutes free kick eluded the visitors defence and fell for the unmarked Grace to shoot into the corner of the goal.1-1

AFC Hayes responded well to this setback & continued to press forward but gradually Potters Bar were having more of the ball & in the 36th minute the home side took the lead when from a corner Simms forced the ball home but not without some controversy when the linesman raised his flag for offside but after being over ruled by the referee the goal stood.2-1

The score remained at 2-1 until half-time

The 2nd half saw AFC Hayes attacking continuously looking for the equalizer but fine keeping by Kamurasi,solid if a sometimes desperate defending by the home defence & missed opportunities meant AFC Hayes suffered their 2nd defeat in a week.With 2 tough home games against St Ives & Dunstable Town coming up AFC Hayes have to rediscover the form they showed against Royston Town.
