Hitchin Town 1 Bedworth United 1

Monday, April 8 2013

After the heights of beating Gosport, the Canaries were brought down to earth by fellow strugglers Bedworth, who made their hosts work hard for a point that edges Hitchin a little closer to survival.

Hitchin were never as convincing as they were against Gosport, but Bedworth – to give them credit – worked hard for the entire 90 minutes and used every trick in the book to break up play.

Perhaps Hitchin could blame the fact that Bedworth were wearing all-green versus Hitchin’s yellow shirts, green shorts and green socks. A bizarre turn-out, especially as the Canaries were not allowed to play in similar colours when they visited Barwell earlier this season – and quite rightly so.

Bedworth had an early opportunity when Mitchell Piggon’s shot was blocked by Martin Bennett. Hitchin had a couple of half chances, Lewis Toomey’s glancing header going inches wide and John Frendo controlling the ball well and volleying past the post.

Bedworth took the lead in the 29th minute when Tom Lorraine received the ball on the right hand side of the area and sent a low shot past Bennett.

Frendo was denied by Andy Kemp in the early stages of the second half but the ball rolled out to Luke Gregson who was seemingly brought down in the area. Almost immediately, the ball went downfield and Piggon was clear on goal, only to see his shot saved by Bennett.

Piggon almost made it 2-0 in the 77th minute when his shot struck the post.

There was a blow for Hitchin when Gregson was carried off hurt. His injury, a suspected ruptured Achilles tendon, will keep him out of action well into next season.

But Hitchin levelled after 82 minutes when Toomey’s cross was parried by Kemp and Frendo headed the ball back into the net for his 39th goal of the season.

That was the end of the entertainment and of Hitchin’s Monday night football for the season. Frendo, by the way, needs three more goals to reach the 100 mark.
