Redditch United 1 Hitchin Town 0

Saturday, October 12 2013

This was a very frustrating defeat and it was a game Hitchin should not have lost.They dominated possession in the first half particularly after David Bridgwater was dismissed for a professional foul on Callum Donnelly after 23 minutes. but the goal would not come. The only danger was to avoid being caught on the break in the second half but this is what happened as on 64 minutes sub Jamie Molyneux scored from a cross from the dangerous Omari Sterling-Jones.. Hitchin continued to have more possession to the end but the goal inspired the 10 men of Redditch to hold firm.
In the first half Tahj Bell only had one shot to deal with as Hitchin continually pressed forward. Matt Lench shot over the bar, Donnelly mishit a shot after good set up play from Michael King, Jamal Lowe had a volley saved while King's header lacked power. Hitchin did get the ball ln the net on the verge of half time but Lowe was judged to be offside.
In truth the second half was disappointing as the sub keeper was rarely tested despite the continued dominance and the Redditch defence was not really opened up. Michael Noone replaced Rogan McGeorge but he was not able to provide the missing touch of guile required to create the openings required. Gary Wharton  replaced Josh Bickerstaff as Hitchin went to three at the back and came close when forcing a good save on 84 minutes. but the game ended in a very disappointing defeat with manager Mark Burke far from happy  with the performance. The real frustration is the lack of consistency with the fine display against St Neots not being built on and several players not at the same level. With a young squad this will happen but the basis is there for a good season and patience will be needed as the players continue to learn their trade.
Bell, Rolfe, Bickerstaff, Lench, Webb, Pearson, McGeorge, Donnelly, Burns, King, Lowe Subs Noone for McGeorge 57, Wharton for Bickerstaff 78, J Gregson, Martin, Hullman.
