A late West rocket ensures a point after a frustrating day in front of goal for the Hammers
With a couple of enforced changes from the week befores 5-0 demolition of Badshot Lea, Cobham began brightly with Thurgood going close early on. Davis carved out two good opportunities before the Visitors scored against the run of play with some great forward movement and subsequent finish after Westphal saved an initial effort from point blank range. Spelthorne grew in confidence and begun to take the game to Cobham with their high press and saw the half out leading.
The second half began with more of the same albeit with no end product to speak of but after around ten minutes, a long range effort deflected straight in to the path of an onrushing Spelthorne player who finished superbly first time.
The Hammers then began an onslaught, with King and Thurgood both going close with headers, Davis through one on one before a fantastic last ditch tackle as he slowed up and Thurgood forcing a great save from the young Spelthorne keeper as the pressure mounted.
On 68 minutes however, Abisogun danced past two defenders before rifling a left footed curling shot in to the corner of the net.
The game seemed to open up and with every Cobham attack came a swift Spelthorne counter, and then in the 90th minute, Nathan West brought some space from distance before dispatching a low hard drive in off the post to bring the game level.
An exciting end and Cobham will be buoyed by the resilience shown and look to take the positives in to Tuesday nights Cup match at home to Colliers Wood.
