Point taken; "Should've been three" says Dowse

Beavers stay unbeaten but should have taken the points, according to Dowse; plenty of chances but no joy.

Hampton's unbeaten run was extended this afternoon to 19 games as two sides in the top 7 fought out a tight goal-less draw on a cold afternoon.

Chances were at a premium in the first half, although Brendan Kiernan could have opened the game up with an early chance that he wasn't able to convert.

Although neither keeper really had much to do, new keeper Manny Agboola was called on midway through the half to make a save from Alex Osborn's shot from the edge of the box.

10 minutes later, Agboola was called upon again, this time to try and clear a corner from the far side, but after a scramble the Beavers got the ball clear.

The Beavers best chance of the half came just before the break, Max Kretzschmar's free kick being safely caught by Tudors keeper Laurie Walker.

The second half livened up as the Beavers upped the work rate and started to look more dangerous, Elliott Charles broke free down the right and made a bee-line for the visitors goal, his shot beating Walker but smacking against the inside of the far post and rebounding clear.

Just on the hour the Beavers created two chances in quick succession. First, Max Kretzschmar's free kick from the Hampton left was struck with pace, clipping Walker's crossbar as it beat the keeper. 60 seconds later, Brendan Kiernan fired one over from the edge of the box as the home side tried to seize the initiative.

Agboola was a virtual spectator as the Beavers looked to press home the advantage, Hemel not really able to create a clear cut chance. With 10 mins left, Kretzschmar cut in from the right, and struck a sweet shot that Walker had to parry clear to preserve the clean sheet.

After the match, although accepting the point, Dowse clearly thought the Beavers deserved more.

"It should've been 3. Our keeper hasn't had a save to make. Let's not pretend, we've hit the inside of the post, we've hit the bar, we should've won the game."

"People are saying we lacked a forward, Brendan Kiernan is a really good player but he's only got two league goals this season and we need to try and get him to capture his form of last season."

On receiving the Manager of the Month award, Dowse was keen to share it out. "Its not my award, its the club's award and I gave it to the girls in the kitchen because they do just as much at the club as I do or Josh Casey does. It wasn't my award, it was for the people here, I couldn't give a monkeys about it. Its good for the club, we'll just continue what we're doing, that's all."
