Bedworth United 0 Hitchin Town 1

Saturday, September 18 2010

A first half goal from Richard Howell gave Hitchin a 1-0 win at Bedworth and kept the Canaries at the top of the Zamaretto Central Division.

Howell’s that – Hitchin win again!

Scrappy, scruffy or whatever way you wish to describe it – this was scarcely a classic. Perhaps it was in fact a “pork scratching” of a game – Bedworth is, after all, the area where that famous pub delicacy hails from.

Last season, Hitchin drew at the Oval, so a 1-0 win represents progress. Bedworth didn’t make it easy, but they also failed to really test the Canaries’ defence for much of the 90 minutes. It was one of those games that you have to win if you want to win titles – that’s the sort of response any manager would give you.

Bedworth’s best chance came in the early stages, Luke Barlone finding himself clear on goal with only Martin Bennett to beat.  He didn’t.

For long periods, it was tame stuff, but Hitchin thought they had taken the lead in the 14th minute when Jamie Arlick netted, but the referee ruled it out for an infringement.
Callum Donnelly almost scored in the 43rd minute when his 30-yard shot landed on the roof of the net, but almost on the stroke of half-time, Hitchin did go ahead.

Mustapha at BedworthA cross by Tom Pepper saw Arlick rise to meet it, Bedworth keeper Tom Farmer failed to hold the ball and it fell to Richard Howell who hooked it home. Howell received a hefty kick as he scored, which saw him stretchered off. By the end of the game, he seemed to have recovered.

Arlick, who has not enjoyed the best of luck in front of goal so far, almost added another in the 53rd minute, but Farmer did well to save his glancing header. Louis Lee also went close with a low shot.

Late in the game, Tom Mustapha tried to set up Arlick after a direct run down the flank and into six yard box, but his effort was blocked. Similarly, Zak Burke could also have added to Howell’s goal when the ball fell to him, but his shot, perhaps hasty, went wide.
