2 late goals secure point for Blues

Late, late show from Marlow gains point from below-par performance.

Two goals in the last 11 minutes were needed to take something from what was not one of the better performances from the Blues so far this season.
Marlow were missing Jordan Brown, Richards Witt, Jay Welch and Simon Grant and were set up in a new formation for them to try and be more secure through the middle and the combination of these factors may have contributed to a less than glittering performance.
The first period saw few chances at either end although Kelvin Bossman did go close with a well-hit curling volley as early as the 4th minute for the Blues which ended just wide of the angle of the goal. For Barton Jet Esso headed wide from a good position some 20 minutes later whilstDanny Watson swung at a low cross from the right but pulled his shot across the goal and wide 6 minutes later. In response Kelvin Bossman was also off-target with a header to Isaac Osei-Tutu's cross in the 37th minute and so the sides left the field without finding a goal at the interval.
It was a case of more of the same for the next quarter with the first goal not arriving until the 66th minute and coming after a long cross from the right was met by Charlie Payne for the visitors beyond the far post and although he struck it sweetly back it required a deflection from Calam Gallimore to help it past Oneal Garnes and into the Marlow net.
The unfortunate Gallimore managed top find the net again just 4 minutes later when in trying to intercept and clear a ball though the middle he found the top corner of his own goal to gift the visitors a second score.
A few minutes later manager Mark Bartley made a double substitution with Kamaron English and Josh Francis entering the fray and the pace and determination of English was soon rewarded as his chase to a ball through the middle paid dividends as hestitation between defender and keeper saw his manage to get a boot to the ball to touch it past the stranded duo and run into the net.
Buoyed by this unexpected turn of events the Blues pushed for an equaliser and this soon arrived with a tempting, curling cross from Marcus Mealing just cleared (or touched) the hair on Chris Ovenden's head and finished inside the far post muck to the delight of all Blues players and supporters with just 3 minutes left on the clock.
