Frome Town 2 Hitchin Town 1

Saturday, March 9 2013

If ever there was a day when Hitchin needed a bit of good fortune, then this was it. But luck certainly deserted the Canaries at Frome and Carl Williams’ side found themselves pointless for the fourth consecutive game and for the fifth time in six.

With some players missing through injury and illness, the Canaries’ reshaped team started well, with recalled defender Dean Gilbert striking the woodwork from Sam Berry’s cross.

And in the 11th minute, another returning player, Callum Donnelly, gave Hitchin the lead with superb lob after a build-up that involved Louis Lee, Lewis Toomey and John Frendo.

Hitchin had a good spell following the goal, with Toomey seeing his shot saved by Darren Chitty and Lawrie Stewart heading over from a corner.

But Frome grabbed the initiative in the closing stages of the half, and in the 39th minute, Matt Smith’s header was helped into the net by Gilbert who has on the goalline when the corner came in.

Frome took the lead six minutes into the second period, an outstanding overhead kick by Jordan Copp giving Martin Bennett no chance.

Hitchin had their fair share of chances to level the scores, notably when Toomey’s header from Michael Noone’s cross was well saved by Chitty. Frendo was also denied by the Frome goalkeeper in the closing stages.

Despite late pressure, Hitchin could not find a way back into the game, and they made the long journey home knowing that this latest defeat increased the pressure on them as they seek to scramble away from relegation trouble.
