HARD FOUGHT: Hemel Town settle for a point away at Eastbourne Borough

 Published on: 1st February 2020   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Hemel Hempstead Town F.C

Hemel Town ended their three-game losing streak away at Eastbourne Borough but are still without a victory in eight games in the Vanarama National League South.

Isaac Galliford gave Hemel the start they wanted when he put them ahead in the 6th minute, after some initial heavy pressure from Eastbourne.

The hope was short lived, when 11 minutes later, Eastbourne debutant Franklin Domi, on loan from QPR, levelled procedures after his 25-yard strike deflected off Connor Essam and went in.

The second half started with Galliford almost putting The Tudors back in front when his effort from 20-yards out went goal ward, but the goalkeeper saved and held the ball well.

Hemel were pressing for the lead and were controlling the game in the second half, and Mitchell Dickenson went close with his head.

The Tudors could count themselves lucky that they didn’t concede a penalty in the 74th minute when Tyrone Sterling looked to have fouled an Eastbourne player, but the referee waved play on.

The final 15 minutes saw the home side put Hemel to the sword looking for the winner and all three points with Luer and Bombelenga both going close.

The result means Hemel remain in 11th place in the league and without a win in eight games.

They welcome Chippenham Town to Vauxhall Road next weekend.
