Foggy game ends in a draw
In a game of two halves the Daniels and Corby share the points but it could have been zero if it wasn't for a string of fine saves late on by Danny Haystead.
Three minutes into the game and the Daniels had the first chance, Henry Eze received the ball following a corner, he crossed to Rob Morgan who flicked the ball on to Jordan Smith whose shot was well saved. Corby had their first chance ten minutes later as Steven Leslie swung in a free-kick to Paul Malone who volleyed over.
Two minutes later and Bradley Fortnam-Tomlinson intercepted a poor goal-kick but his attempt from range went well wide. Two minutes later, in a defenders nightmare of a game, Jake Duffy seized onto a loose ball, before rounding the Corby keeper, he crossed to Bradley Fortnam-Tomlinson who tapped into the empty net, only to be denied by the linesman flag.
23 minutes into the game Jake Duffy found Brad Wells with a superb ball but he could only shoot wide. Eight minutes later and Jake Duffy was again providing, but this time the goal came, Jake swung in a corner from the left, finding an unmarked Bradley Fortnam-Tomlinson who headed in.

Just before the break a Connor Kennedy free-kick was blocked for a corner by Mike Armstrong.
Three minutes after the break Rob Morgan was played in on goal following a quick free-kick by Jake Duffy, he couldn’t get his shot away, but the ball fell to Bradley Fortnam-Tomlinson whose shot was well saved.
