Hitchin Town 0 Wingate & Finchley 3

Saturday, September 27 2014

Hitchin's FA Cup run came to an end on Saturday afternoon after losing 3-0 at home to Wingate & Finchley.

The game started in a lively manner, with both sides looking to stamp their authority early on.

It took just 16 minutes for the visitors to score - David Knight striking the ball with power in to the top right of the goal. 

Moments later, it was almost two to the away side, with both Karl Oliyide and Tommy Tejan-Sie hitting the crossbar before Knight's strike went well over.

Hitchin looked rattled by their opponents' strength and confidence, and the visitors secured a second goal in the 28th minute, courtesy of Nico Muir. It was Karl Oliyide who provided the assist.

The hosts had little in the way of opportunities, although Jonny McNamara had half a chance with a header - a deflection forcing it wide for a corner. Callum Donnelly then tried his luck from long-range but Wingate & Finchley keeper Bobby Smith was down quickly to make a save.

In the 41st minute, Ahmet Rifat made it 3-0, with Knight providing the assist.

There was an early second-half chance for Hitchin when Charlie Smith slipped a ball through to Jonny McNamara. McNamara got a shot away but Bobby Smith had his near post well covered.

The game then somewhat fizzled out as the second-half went on, although there were a few half-chances.

Wingate & Finchley's Leon Fisher made a run up the wing, cut inside the defence and got a shot away - his shot deflecting wide for a corner, and Hitchin's Dan Webb was gifted a free header in the box, but a good save from Smith saw it palmed away to safety.

Off-target shots from Knight and substitute Rob Laney then capped off the game.
