Daniels Finish Home Campaign With A Point

The last home game of the season sees the Daniels claim a good point that could have been all three.

Stamford nearly started the game of in a disastrous manner as under a minute into the game former player Nabil Shariff was in on goal but he was denied by a great save by fans player of the season Sam Donkin. Shariff was influential again just three minutes later as he pulled the ball back to the edge of the area, to another former Daniel: Shawn Richards, but his shot went well over the bar.

Liam Dolman then sent a free-kick well over the bar for the visitors who enjoyed the lion share of the chances in what was a poor half. Just before the break the visitors had the lead they desired as a corner from the right was poorly dealt with by the home defence allowing an easy finish for Nabil Shariff.

Stamford could and probably should have had their own goal from a corner nine minutes after the restart, this time directly from the corner. It appeared to have crossed the line and as all eyes were on the linesman no flag came much to the disgust of all in red. With two thirds of the game played Tom Lorraine had a chance to get Diamond’s second but his shot went well over the bar.

Stamford’s Grant Ryan then had two good opportunities on the volley from the edge of the box but both of these were rushed and went wide of the post.

Following this he was replaced by John King and Rogan Mcgeorge replaced Jake Duffy. Two minutes after these changes Stamford had a great chance to level but Jordan Smith’s shot went just wide. Diamonds went up the other end following this chance where Lorraine cut inside from the left but his curling shot went just wide.

With ten minutes to go Graham Drury made his last change of the game bringing Jamie Mcghee on for Laurie Wilson. Two minutes after this the Daniels were level as John King beat the Diamond’s right back before running to the line and putting an inch perfect cross in, on to the head of Jordan Smith, whose header was placed just out of the reach of Matt Finlay sending all in red into jubilation.
