EMCL ~ Gedling Miners 1 St Andrews FC 1


Points shared against the Saints

Gedling...........1 (Stephens 50)
St Andrews....1 (Henfrey 52)

Miners and Saints share the points.

A thoroughly entertaining game between two teams meeting for the second time within 11 days.
High flying Saints must wonder what they have to do to beat Gedling in what has transpired to be a very competitive game of football.

Both teams were at it from the off with Bomber Stephens leading the home line well and his header came back off the bar after 20 minutes. For their part the visitors also went mighty close when skipper Leon Doughty and Julian Peace both tested Danby in the home goal. Chances came and went as the half wore on but both keepers were busy if not spectacular.

The second half was much of the same but home midfielder Tom Watson was beginning to assert his authority on the game. Skipper Brown had a decent effort saved before Watson played in Stephens to slot home the games first goal.

The lead, however, was to last just a couple of minutes. Substitute Dan Henfrey fired through a forest of legs from the edge of the box for the leveler. The goal seemed to galvanise the Saints and they went close on further occasions with the home back line holding firm.

Gedling also surged forward with real purpose with Watson again to the fore bringing out a fine finger tip save from Somaiya. It was anyone's game now as both sides careered forward looking for the breakthrough. Sub Kamal Hayles nearly won it or the Miners as his sidefoot struck a post late on from a neat pass from Reid.

Gedling were mighty unlucky not to have taken all three points from a very fine Saints team.

Honours even then but some super play from the home team.
