Battling performance earns draw

A one all draw sees Stamford go three league games unbeaten as they look to build a good run before the end of the season. Writes Stephen Breden

Kidsgrove started the better of the two sides with Stamford looking like they hadn’t turned up until a third of the way through the match. Kidsgrove’s Kyle Diskin had a good opportunity just seven minutes into the game as he volleyed from range straight to Sam Donkin.

He had another chance ten minutes later but again he couldn’t beat Donkin, this time from a free-kick. Just before the first third was finished Harry Clayton cut inside from the wing but his shot went just over the bar.

A few minutes later saw John King beat his man before running down the wing, he tried to cross but it ended up on target but was a simple save for the keeper. The last chance of the half came to Jake Duffy as his long range effort went well over the bar.

The second half started quietly but on the 63rd minute there was very nearly an opener as a John King cross looked as if it would be an easy win for the keeper but Jack Oldham caused some trouble in the six yard area with the ball going just wide of the post.

A few minutes after this Aaron Johns took aim from range but his shot landed on top of the goal. Kidsgrove then took the lead on the 68th minute as the ball dropped in the area to Ant Malbon, he was originally marked but then got some space before masterfully back heeling the ball into the back of the net from around ten yards catching Sam Donkin unawares.

Minutes after going behind Jamie Mcghee replaced Jack Oldham. Stamford levelled the score with just seven minutes to go as Jake Duffy was played in on goal; he held the ball up for Courtney Meade who was dispossessed but the ball deflected to Jamie Mcghee who slotted home well.

Stamford had another promising chance late on as Jake Duffy latched onto a long clearance, he controlled excellently but had no support and the chance was missed. Late on Courtney Meade was replaced by Chris Hollist.
