BALDOCK TOWN 1 OXHEY JETS 1 (HT 1-1)

Anyone who watched this league match between Baldock Town and Oxhey Jets would have left the New Lamb Meadow totally bemused as to how the home side did not win comfortably.

With Adam Harpur, Josh Furness, Dean Gilbert and Kieran Barnes returning to the starting line-up from the midweek victory at Crawley Green, the Reds went into the match being fully aware of Oxhey Jets impressive recent record of scoring 11 goals without reply in their last two fixtures.

The opening exchanges were pretty much all in the away teams half, but against the run of play, the Jets took the lead on 8 minutes through a Nick Kerley shot that went past an advancing Adam Harpur.

On 23 minutes an accidental clash of heads left Jets’ Henry Marku flat out on the ground with a severe eye wound. He was immediately withdrawn and after a visit to hospital, the good news is that he was discharged with a clean bill of health, although he will miss a few games in recovery.

Baldock continued on the front foot, having numerous chances but it took until 3 minutes before half-time for Lewis Barker to step up with an equaliser, taking the sides into the break level at 1-1.

Harry Holland was replaced by Kim Forsythe at the interval and a bombardment of the Jets goal got under way. A Russell Bull shot hit the post causing the ball to out wide and a follow-up Forsythe attempt saw the ball come off the cross-bar. Soon after Owen Robertson broke away down the right and passed to Forsythe who this time saw his shot well saved by Matty Evans in the Jets goal.

Baldock went on the attack again and a Sam James header rolled across the goal and was put over by Bull from close range. Then Robertson fired a shot across the area that hit Barker on the 6 yard box and flew just wide. The Oxhey Jets goal was leading a charmed life.

Late in the game however the Jets were left screaming for a penalty as striker Sean Giormaina went through on the Baldock goal and went sprawling on the turf, but the referee just waved play-on, ignoring their protests.

The away side somehow managed to hold on throughout stoppage time and their relief at holding on to an unlikely point at the final whistle was abundantly obvious for all to see.

Baldock Town remain in 14th place in the table with 15 points from 13 games.

Baldock Town:
Harpur, Brooks, Furness, Gilbert, Priestner, Barker, Barnes, Robertson, Joy (James), Holland (Forsythe), Bull (Ngwala). Unused subs: Gregson, Farmer (GK).

The next fixture is away at Bostik League Bishop’s Stortford on Tuesday evening (27th) in the Herts Senior Challenge Cup. After that, Potton United come to the New Lamb Meadow for a League match on Saturday 1st December.
