Point on the road for Linnets

November 27, 2017

Manager Ian Culverhouse declared himself happy with a point following this stalemate in deepest Hertfordshire on Saturday. 


Despite having a good measure of control on a majority of the game clear chances for both teams were at a premium as two well drilled defences carried out their jobs to the letter.

“You have to be happy with a point on the road’ admitted Culverhouse. 


“I said in the build up to the game that we would need all of our fighting skills and determination to get something from here because I knew it would be a difficult place to come. 


“On that front I was proven right. They were well set up, very stubborn and well organised, It was difficult to create clear cut chances and when we did today we were guilty of not quite being on the money and taking them. 


“Their keeper has made a top drawer save at the end to deny Hawks (Ryan Hawkins) and they also had a great chance to win it as well so you have to be satisfied with the point. It keeps the momentum going and it’s something to carry on to Tuesday’s game at Biggleswade’.

The Linnet’s controlled most of the first half with Michael Gash grazing home keeper Martin Bennett’s right hand post following a Tom Ward long throw. 


Mitchell Weiss was denied by a combination of Ward and Alex Street as the home side launched a brief foray into visiting territory.

The second half begun with appeals for a Lynn penalty as Gash tumbled in the area and Leon Mettam lifting the ball over the bar following good Linnets pressure. Cameron norman undertook a mazy run which ended with the full back firing wide and when substitute Hawkins fired straight at Bennett shortly after his introduction it seemed only a matter of time before a visiting goal arrived.


However Josh Coldicott–Stevens should have won the game for the hosts as he stole the ball from an advancing Street but failed to hit the open gapping goal, instead firing the ball wide of the upright. 


The action switched immediately to the other end where Bennett produced a superb fingertip save to deny Hawkins powerful curling effort to ensure spoils remained even.
