Leatherhead away review

Following the home draw against Potters Bar Town our next game, at Leatherhead, produced our second drawn game, this time one without goals. Rarely has such relentless rain fell for the whole 90 minutes of a match and in such circumstances credit is due to both sides for ignoring the conditions to put on an entertaining game. Credit to the Leatherhead groundsman too for the match never seemed in danger of being abandoned and it was quite late on before surface water began to cause problems. The first half was 50/50 with plenty of action at both ends not providing a great deal in the way of eliciting spectacular saves from either ‘keeper. The second half was very much one of
sustained Borough pressure but the less said about our finishing the better. Gloom set in temporarily when a breakaway in the closing minutes ended with the ball in our net seemingly condemning us to a fourth solitary goal defeat of the season but mercifully an Assistant’s flag brought salvation to us and frustration to the home supporters. A let off and defeat avoided, but in truth on the run of play it has to be regarded as 2 points dropped.

We move onto Cray Wanderers at home on Saturday.
