K's 1 Hamlet 1
A midweek away draw against last season's runners up, who look strong enough to be there or thereabouts again, was a decent enough result. Hamlet were unable to make the most of a dominant first half performance, stringing the ball around for long spells in which the home team often seemed to be chasing shadows, but unable to create clear chances against a very solid looking defence. We took the lead late in the half when Forbes rammed the ball into the net from just a few feet out after Hamici's header from a corner had been blocked on the line. The referee seemed to be looking for a reason to disallow it, looking hard towards his assistant for guidance before the man with the flag gave a discreet hand signal pointing back towards the centre spot as if he didn't really want anyone else to notice.
We were never likely to sustain our first half tempo through to the final whistle and K's came more into the game. By the time they equalised with 25 minutes to go Hamlet had almost ceased to show any attacking threat and it appeared we would struggle to hold out for the draw. As Dessie said, the free kick that led to the equaliser looked ominous as soon as our wall lined up. It appeared that the ball only had to be on target to go in with Wilson looking somehow awfully exposed, although teh shot was aactually chipped over the wall and under the bar so the positioning of the wall and number of players in it wasn't really a factor. Both sides had opportunities to snatch a winner towards the end, but in a game of few clear chances overall a point apiece was fair enough.
Team (4-3-3): Wilson - Kamara, Forbes(c), Pinnock, Patterson - Carew, James, Samuels - Clunis, Hamici, McDonald.
Subs: Mansaray (for Hamici), Vidal (for McDonald), Goncalves, Neita, Hibbert (not used).
