Hitchin Town 1 Gosport Borough 0

Saturday, April 6 2013

Suddenly, the world is a different place. The Canaries stepped closer to Premier Division safety with a victory against a team that had looked invincible for much of the season. But while Hitchin completed their best few days of the campaign – a point and a win from two tough games – Gosport have just lost three games in a week.

And it was a case of “welcome back John Frendo” as Hitchin’s star striker scored a world-class goal to win the game.

Although Gosport went close early on when Dan Wooden volleyed wide, it was Hitchin that controlled the opening period of the game.

A couple of Callum Donnelly crosses caused problems for the Gosport defence, the first met by a Lewis Toomey header and the second a teasing effort that just failed to connect.

Gosport responded with former Portsmouth midfielder Sammy Igoe going close twice. Then Rory Williams threatened to give Gosport the lead when he raced past Dean Gilbert and shot into the side-netting. Just before the interval, Wooden's Long-range shot whistled over the bar.

Gosport started the second period well and Williams tested Bennett when he beat Gilbert to the ball and sent in a half volley that was well saved.

Toomey had a left-foot strike that went just wide and then a shot which bounced awkwardly in front of goal. At the other end, Wooden was denied by a goal line clearance from young Hitchin full back Elliot Legg.

Hitchin took the lead in the 70th minute with an outstanding strike from Frendo. Michael Noone's corner to the near post was met first time with a crisp volley that soared into the roof of he Gosport net.

Seconds later, Gosport almost equalised when Wooden's curling shot went just over end bar.

But Frendo had another chance when Luke Gregson rolled the ball to him and a low shot was saved by Nathan Ashmore.

The goal gave Hitchin renewed confidence, substitute Ellis Remy meeting a free kick by Noone with a volley and then Legg went on a surging run before shooting wide.

Late in the game, Bennett stopped a goalbound effort from Wooden, deflecting his shot over the crossbar.
