ANOTHER POINT: Hemel Hempstead Town held by Dulwich Hamlet 

 Published on: 22nd November 2020   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Hemel Hempstead Town F.C

Hemel Hempstead Town could only pick up a point at home against struggling Dulwich Hamlet with both sides scoring just before half time, despite the visitors being down to 10-men early in the second half.

The Tudors went the closest to opening the scoring in the first 20 minutes after a terrific effort from Duke-McKenna hit the crossbar.

Jonathan Lacey almost found the opener in the 43rd minute when he picked out a good effort, but the chance went just wide.

Dulwich went up the other end though and did get the opening goal after a great cross from Barnes found Danny Mills who tapped home.

Hemel found the perfect response though after Charles Clayden received a second yellow card for a foul, before Nathan Cooper managed to score the resulting free kick to level things.

Despite having the man advantage throughout the second half, Hemel failed to make many clear-cut chances, with Jake Evans having the best opportunities with a few being well dealt with by Dulwich’s ‘keeper.

The result leaves Hemel in 12th place in the National League South, with 10 points from their opening 10 games.

Next up for the Tudors is an away trip to Tonbridge Angels on Saturday, who sit just one place above them in the table.
