Shock Served Up As Crusaders Slay Beavers

By

Hampton could not follow up their FA Cup win at Eastleigh as they fell to a 2-0 defeat away to Hungerford Town.

Hampton were sluggish and slow throughout and were punished by a more energetic Hungerford Town.

Hungerford broke the deadlock in the 18th minute through a powerful shot by Danilo Orsi-Dadomo which Tom Lovelock could not hold onto.

Hungerford doubled the lead in the 65th minute as Darren Foxley swung in a free kick which found the head of Joshua Martin who powered a header into the net.

Hampton pushed for a way back into the game but could not find a goal and slipped to a third straight league defeat.

First Half

Hampton were poor in the first half and were lucky to not be further behind at the break.

The first goal came after a deep cross from the left hand side of the pitch that missed everyone in the box - except Orsi-Dadomo - who drilled his shot through Lovelock - one he will probably be disappointed not to keep out.

Hampton thought they were level on the half hour mark but Chris Dickson’s turn and shot inside the box was disallowed as he was deemed to be in an offside position by the linesman.

They could have fell further behind when Foxley played in Matt Jones on the overlap and one on one with Lovelock rolled his shot wide.

The Beavers nearly equalised a minute later when Rhys Murrell-Williamson forced a fine save from Weaver with a free kick from the edge of the box, But the Beavers went in at half time behind.

Second Half

Hampton started the second half well and had two appeals for penalties turned down within the first five minutes, both times Joseph was told to get to his feet.

Hampton then had another chance to equalise when a high ball into the box was met by the head of Ricky Wellard but he could only head the ball straight at the keeper.

Orsi-Dadamo had a chance on the hour mark to extend the lead of Hungerford as he picked up a long ball and curled a shot into the arms of Lovelock.

Garry McCann attempted to inject some life into the Hampton side by bringing on Dan Uchechi but Hungerford doubled their lead moments later by Martin as he powered a header in from Foxley’s free kick.

Hampton tried to apply pressure but could not fashion any clear cut chances, the closest they came to an equaliser was a Dickson snapshot from a difficult angle that was unfortunately straight at the keeper - this was unfortunately not the Beavers’ day.

Reaction

Hampton & Richmond Manager Gary McCann:

"I'm disappointed in today's performance.

There wasn't an area in the pitch I was pleased with; I thought they wanted it more than us, needed it more than us.

They were first to every first ball, second ball we deserved nothing out of today's game. I don't think too many players can take much pride from their performance today.

I thought we were well short today."
