Match Report: Holyport 2 v 1 Fleet Spurs

By

A Driffill doubles sees 10 man Port through to 1st Rd Proper...

This was a match that both sides would have fancied their chances, both step 6 clubs, and both doing in well in their respective Cup competitions this season. Holyport made a few changes to their Monday night Berks and Bucks Cup win with Ovens making way for Hedges and Drake making way for Deverall who passed a fitness test before the game. It was a almost the perfect start for Holyport as during the opening minutes Holyport were getting in behind Fleet for fun but on each occasion the ball just seemed to evade Ports final touch.

After this Fleet started to grow into the game, Quelch tipped over an in swinging corner but no real chances were being created at this point by either side. As the game flowed end to end on 35 minutes Charlie Evans was dismissed for a dangerous tackle, the frustrating thing is was that he was actually pulling out of the tackle for the bouncing ball when he caught the player. The resulting free kick from Fleet put over.

Going down to 10 men seemed to make the game easier for Port, seating back and hitting Fleet on the counter attack. A goal came immediately as Fabian Driffill ghosted past three Fleet players and whilst surrounded by Fleet players he cooly passed the ball into the bottom right hand corner to give Port a 1-0 lead. Almost straight away Port should have made it two, Deverall latched onto a ball over the top and toe poking it past the keeper the keeper managed to get the faintest of touches to see it go wide.

Fleet Spurs came out after the break with renewed enthusiasm, but this was dampened within two minutes when a dreadful mix-up in the area left Driffill in yards of space ten yards from goal and he passed the ball into the empty net to double the Port's lead. Alan Akerman would also see a curling effort go inches wide with the Fleet keeper beaten. Drake would also see two efforts go agonisingly wide in the closing stages.

Fleet huffed and puffed with numerous efforts from the edge of the box but Quelch was hardly called into action.

In the 90th minute Spurs almost reduced the deficit Mudonhi scored, with a turn and volley which seemed to take an age to hit the back of the net. This was little too late for Fleet, credit to Holyport who maintained their shape when going down to 10 men and deserved their place in Mondays draw.
