Underestimating the opposition cost Knebworth valuable points against struggling Chipperfield Corinthians in the HSCL Premier Division on Saturday.
Instead of an easy victory the Ks were lucky to scramble a two all draw against visitors languishing near the bottom of the table.
Having endured an early Knebworth onslaught which constantly lacked the final touch, Chipperfield went one up the forty first minute.
A penalty converted by Ryan Ellis, awarded after Kadeem Gutzmore was chopped down in the box, levelled the score early in the second half.
But growing in confidence, a gritty and determined Chipperfield piled on the pressure, winning a penalty of their own in the 80th minute.
A thumping header from Kieran Klimek six minutes later grabbed a point, but still left Knebworth pondering missed chances.
