Dulwich Hamlet 0-0 Maidstone United

3 years ago By Liam Hickey

In front of a new ground record crowd of 3000, Maidstone all but secured the title whilst The Hamlet still need one point to secure a play off place.

Playing with the wind in their favour in the first half, Dulwich were on top but unable to fashion many clear openings. Luke Wanadio got clear within the first minute but was adjudged to have fouled his marker, whilst a long ball forward from Jordan Hibbert in the fifth minute just evaded Harry Ottaway.

Both defences were generally on top with neither keeper being troubled although a slip by Frazer Shaw saw Jack Dixon booked for a foul on Matt Bodkin when it looked like he would get clear.

A mistake at the back from Maidstone almost let on Luke Wanadio and Nyren Clunis but they were unable to find the support they needed.

The best chance of the half came in the 25th minute as a fine through ball from Ashley Carew sent Harry Ottaway in behind the Maidstone defence but he seemed to get caught in two minds as to whether to shoot or round the advancing Worgan and the chance was gone

The Dulwich back four were very strong when called upon with Matt Drage getting his head in when Frannie Collin threatened and Frazer Shaw diffusing a dangerous ball into the box.

Good play from Collin on the right saw Bodkin free in front of goal but Phil Wilson pulled off a brilliant point blank save although it transpired that Bodkin was offside.

With the first half drawing to a close, Ashley Carew brought a good save out of Worgan with a wind assisted effort from distance

HalfTime 0-0

The second half was slow to come to the boil as it was ten minutes in before Collin tested Wilson who saved comfortably.

Dulwich began to get the upper hand as they kept the ball for long periods and came close just past the hour. Ashley Carew clipped a ball over the top to Xavier Vidal who went past Worgan and shot across goal from a tight angle. However, his effort was cleared from in front of the line as Nyren Clunis closed in.

Jay May and Jack Parkinson combined well but couldn't pierce the Dulwich defence whilst Xavier Vidal was nearly in again at the other end.

Maidstone substitute Greenhalgh then produced a cross that was just out of the reach of the onrushing Collin before the game entered a lull as both sides cancelled each other out.

With time running down, both Bricknell and Bodkin tried their luck from distance but both shots were over the top, failing to trouble Wilson in the home goal
