Monday night football has been a success this season for the Canaries and this game was one of the best. In terms of entertainment, there have been few better 90 minutes' at Top Field.

The action started from the kick-off.  Zak Burke, who is going through a renaissance, cut inside and sent a low shot past AFC Totton keeper James Bittner. At this point, Hitchin were brimming with confidence and they didn’t allow Totton to settle.

Two minutes after the goal, John Frendo tried a speculative lob but Bittner was equal to the effort and tipped the ball over the ball.

But Bittner was well beaten in the 17th minute when a Tony Fontenelle cross to the far post was met by the head of Ieuan Lewis who dived to head home the Canaries’ second goal.

AFC Totton finally responded in the 35th minute, although a superb tackle by Marc Leach on Mark Osman – in full flight – prevented a certain goal. Osman did find the back of the net from close range to give Totton hope.

Just before the interval, however, Frendo almost restored Hitchin’s two-goal advantage, but his snap shot from the edge of the area was beaten away in spectacular fashion by Bittner.

Totton started to turn the screw in the early stages of the second period and Osman had a header cleared off the line by Lawrie Stewart.

In the 70th minute, though, Totton levelled, Jamie Whisken heading into the net at the near post from a long throw-in by Michael Gosney,

Four minutes later, Totton were reduced to 10 men after Nathan Campbell was red-carded after kicking-out at a yellow shirted player.

Amid a flurry of cards, the game continued to engage the audience but neither side  could muster up another goal.
