Bedworth United 1 Hitchin Town 0

Tuesday, September 18 2012

Bedworth’s ground may be the Oval, but it all went “pear-shaped” for Hitchin in the Midlands.

It wasn’t the best preparation for the Canaries’ FA Cup game at Whitehawk on Saturday. As well as losing, they also saw key midfielder Callum Donnelly sent off and will be deprived of him for three games. For such a thin squad, that is a real blow for Carl Williams’ men.

The game itself was uninspiring. In possession terms, Hitchin edged it, at least until they lost Donnelly. When Bedworth scored what was to be the winner, it was the first time the crowd had been stirred.

The 33rd minute goal was, like Stourbridge’s winner in the previous game, a defensive slip-up. This time, goalkeeper Martin Bennett failed to clear the ball and Bedworth’s Ashley Robinson shot home.

There was another blow for Hitchin just as the half-time whistle went. Donnelly swung a punch at Bedworth’s Loyiso Recci and was red-carded. Hitchin regrouped after the break and John Frendo, who had been starved of the oxygen that creates chances in the first period, had an early opportunity after being set-up Zak Burke.

Bennett prevented Bedworth from scoring again when he saved from Luke Keen and shortly afterwards, Mitch Piggon missed a golden chance.

Hitchin remained hopeful of getting back into the game right until the final stages. And in the 87th minute, Frendo teed-up Dean Gilbert but the Canaries skipper struck the crossbar from close range.
