Wick 0 - 0 Thornbury Town

Wick were forced to make more changes this week following a number of injuries and players absent through work or holidays in this top of the table clash. In a nervy opening spell from both teams, Wick did carve an early opening on 7 minutes, when a short corner was played to Mike Hardiman, whose dangerous cross into the Thornbury 6 yard area drew a smart save from the Thornbury keeper Tom Sheppard. Wick were working the ball well with Hardiman creating openings for Sam Baber and the danderous Alex Whale. Danny Sheldon was also working the left hand flank and his pin point cross on 19 minutes was met by Joe Thomas who was denied again by Sheppard. Hardiman was starting to command the midfield and his 25 minute 30 yard strike skimmed an upright. Two minutes later, Thornbury’s first meaningful attack should have hit the target but was just wide of the post. Both teams were beginning to settle but the wind was causing Wick problems. On 30 minutes a Thornbury free kick from the left just inside the halfway line forced a good save from Jack Madge, saving a shot just inside the 6 yard area. The half finished with both teams unable to unlocked solid defences.

Wick started the second half playing with the wind, which aided Mike Hardiman’s 35 yard strike on 60 minutes, that clattered the Thornbury crossbar with Sheppard well beaten. The wind was proving a real help and on 70 minutes a deep James Pocock free kick had Shepherd tipping the Ball from just under his crossbar. Thornbury did eventually create an opening on 75 minutes, when their centre forward made a sharp turn, but his shot was smartly saved by Edmunds. Both keepers were having great games, but it was Hardiman who was individually making the game tick. On 77 minutes, Sam Baber dragged the Ball back across the Thornbury penalty area, for Hardiman to pop up with a low drive only for a Thornbury defender to clear a certain goal with a diving header. Wick were on top and had two further chances in the dying minutes. Danny Sheldon shot on 82 minutes hit the Thornbury side netting and will seconds to go a 20 yard screamer by Shaun Morris narrowly missed an upright.

This was a very close encounter between two very good sides, which ended in a 0-0 draw.
