Replay needed as Beavers blocked by drab Crows

A replay will be needed to decide the game as the Beavers and Crows fought out an uninspiring 0-0 draw at Beveree.

Hampton looked bright at the start and Jack Taylor managed to get his shot on target after 9 minutes but it was straight at keeper Joe Welch and no trouble to the keeper.

5 minutes later, the Crows had their first clear chance as Josh Castiglione cut in from the left hand side to crack a shot on goal; debutant keeper Charlie Grainger stood up and parried the ball away.

Midway through the half, the Beavers looked to be in on goal as Josh Casey was played in down the left by Brendan Kiernan. His cross went across goal to an unmarked Christian Jolley, but he scuffed his shot when it looked more likely Welch would be picking it out of the net.

Just before the half time break, the Beavers won a free kick a foot outside the box as Brendan Kiernan was fouled in an attempt to find himself some space get in a shot.  The attempt by Josh Casey was well struck but went just wide of the post.

Hampton were definitely showing signs of taking control of this game as the Crows didn't really look like they were able to deal with the Beavers front four on a consistant basis.

Early in the second half, John Frendo took advantage of a bouncing ball as it bounced between two Hampton players to try and lob Grainger, but the attempt drifted wide of the post.

The Beavers had their best chance on 67 minutes as Nicke Kabamba's header almost wrong footed keeper Joe Welch, but the keeper recovered to push the ball over the bar. Royston were having to defend as the Beavers tried to push on with the game to avoid the replay.

With 10 minutes to go, Hampton's Shaquille Hippolyte-Patrick had a good shot from edge of the box, which was parried away by Welch as the Beavers pressed, without much joy.

However, the pressure came to naught, and deep into the 7 minutes of added time, Michael Kamara was dismissed for a second bookable offence as he went up for a free kick and caught a Royston player.

Despite the Beavers attacking efforts, the Crows held on for the replay without them ever really looking a threat to Grainger's goal.
It all means that the two teams must try again at Garden Walk on Tuesday night in a replay neither team really wants. Given the Beavers' excellent away form, Dowse will be expecting better and will no doubt get it.
