DYNAMO 2 Spalding United 2
Dynamo twice came from behind to secure a draw in a game where the ball appeared to be more in the air than on the ground.
With both teams opting for a direct approach, it was a first half of few memorable notes, which was a shame for when Dynamo did play the ball to feet they looked as though they would create chances unfortunately their final pass or shot never matched the approach play.
The first opportunity fell to Dynamo when Spalding failed to clear a Danny Gordon long throw the ball falling to Luke Foster whose low shot looked destined for the back of the net, but Spalding keeper Michael Duggan reacted quickly and tipped the ball onto the post and out of pay for a fruitless Dynamo corner.
Spalding had a couple of blocked efforts before Duggan again denied Dynamo this time saving a powerful shot from Ryan Robbins.
Although the second half was still more direct ball the chances and goals did arrive, all within a an eighteen minute spell.
Spalding opened the scoring in the forty eighth minute when Jordan Lemon was gifted an opportunity that he duly scored from, Dynamo were soon level when five minutes later Liam Read collected the ball just outside the Spalding area and rifled a shot into the net.
Having got themselves back into the game in the fifty eighth minute Dynamo again found themselves behind when poor marking at a corner allowed Ben Davison to score from a free header, however as before Spalding’s lead was short lived when Robbins scored on his home debut
In the final quarter of the game Dynamo perhaps had the better opportunities to take all three points although they also had one or two nervous moments in defence.
An interesting fact from this game was that there was not a single offside decision.
