Woodfarm 2, Spartak 2

It certainly felt like an opportunity missed, although Woodfarm had a glorious chance very late on which struck the woodwork, and which could have snatched victory against a tiring Sky Blue outfit.

Spartak were somewhat depleted, with Jimmy Dawson starting for the second time in the weekend, but opened well enough, and moved the ball through the thirds calmly. Keith Kelly had a great long range effort which hit the bar, and it was form Keith’s throw that Stuart Love flicked on which lured the keeper out to punch the ball straight to Amin Afsar, 15 yards out, and he neatly lobbed the ball in.

Spartak looked favourites to add to the scoreline before the break, but instead the locals equalised, against the run of play, after the winger came inside, evading tackles from Tom O’Driscoll and Neil McGowan to shoot in from outside the box.

The Sky Blues got the dream start to the second half, with Owen Marron pivoting to fire home left footed, after a good move involving Cian Stenson, Amin Afsar and Jeff Gamble. Then almost immediately Stuart Love and Jeff gamble combined to set up Cian Stenson, but he shot wide with the keeper out of position.

As injuries and tiredness set it, Spartak created few more chances and it was the home team who grew stronger, equalising before fashioning a few chances.
