Brendan's brace saves Beavers blushes

Beavers leave it late to defeat plucky Foresters

Brendan Kiernan's cameo role off the bench saves the Beavers from repeating last years FA Cup 3rd Qualifying round exit, scoring twice inside the last 10 minutes to put Hampton into the next round and 90 minutes from the First Round proper.

The Beavers were set right back on their heels within the first 30 seconds, as a defensive error set up Foresters striker Declan Morley-Lyne with a one-on-one with Sam Howes, which the striker won, slotting the ball into the corner of the net past Howes' dive. Later on, the goal time was released as 22 seconds, possibly one of the earliest Cup goals known.

Cinderford continued with their fast start, keeping the Hampton defence in work, but without really threatening Howe's goal. As the half progressed, the Beavers won a series of free kicks and corners without ever stretching Clarke in the home goal.

It took until the 33rd minute for Hampton to equalise and it came through possibly the smallest player on the Beavers front line, as Taurean Roberts managed to get higher than his marker to flick home Charlie Wassmer's long ball into the box.

In the first part of the second half, Hampton looked the more likely to score as Marvin Morgan's header forced a save from Clarke then Malachi Napa's shot a minute or so later was just over the bar.

However, just after the hour, the hosts snatched the lead through Andy Lewis' penalty, following the referee's decision that Jack Cook had fouled the Foresters' Lewis Bamford. Lewis converted the spot kick with confidence, leaving Howes going the opposite way to the kick.

Dowse's reaction was to bring on Brendan Kiernan, followed by Max Kretzschmar, showing that the Beavers were going all out for a positive result.

The game was turning more and more towards Hampton and on 81 minutes, Kiernan broke through the stubborn home defence. Attacking the massed black and white shirts, Kiernan created himself a couple of yards on the edge of the box to curl an exquisite shot across Clarke and into the top corner.

Cinderford weren't going to settle for a replay and with just 5 mins to go, Nick Grimes managed to send a header goalwards, but it went wide.

It was looking like a replay was going to be on the cards, until with seconds of normal time remaining, Kiernan controlled a ball into the box, but with his back to goal. Sneaking a glance over his left shoulder, he held off the defender to spin and hit a cool finish from about 12 yards under Clarke to save the Beavers' bacon and deflate the home side, despite their best efforts.
