Late equaliser but Blues stay top

By

Stoppage time strike pegs Blues back but chasing sides also draw.

Into stoppage time and 1-0 up and with Bracknell Town and Hayes and Yeading drawing 3-3 things were looking very rosy for the Blues but a late equaliser from Hertford Town put a different complexion on matters although it meant that the status quo was maintained and the Blues remained top of the table once more.

The first half of the game ended goalless although the home side were looking the more likely to break the deadlock and this they did eventually in the 55th minute when Marcus Mealing somehow got under a dropping ball, controlled it as it fell behind him, pulled it past his marker and cleverly lifted it over the outcoming keeper diving in front of him to find the net.
A blocked effort fell kindly at the other end just a couple of minutes after but Charles Edwards half-volleyed over from a good position as the visitors refused to take things lying down and the game continued very much in the same vein throughout with the Blues defence looking pretty
solid.

Hertford were very fortunate in keeping their all their number on the field of play when the referee changes his mind and failed to caution with a deserved second yellow card (something he later acknowledged that perhaps her should haver done differently) and they continued to search for a way through the Marlow back line.

However things changed dramatically in stoppage time when they found a bit of space on the Marlow left at the back and when the ball was hit in low it was smashed in by Elliot Bailey to reward their efforts.

Marlow now travel to Bracknell Town on Saturday for a very interesting looking top-of-the-table clash.
