POINTS SHARED: Hemel Town leave it late to grab a point against Tonbridge

 Published on: 21st December 2019   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Hemel Hempstead Town F.C

Hemel Town’s poor form continued on Saturday, December 21, as they only managed to pick up a point at home against Tonbridge Angels, extending their winless run to five in the Vanarama National League South.

The visitors started off the game well, applying a lot of pressure to the Hemel defence, with Tyrone Sterling having to put in a good block to deny a shot from troubling their goal.

Niko Muir had the host’s first real opportunity of the game when he created space for himself well in the 36th minute, but his strike was well saved by Tonbridge goalkeeper Jonathan Henly.

It was level at the break, but Hemel started the second half positively when they found the net in the 49th minute when Isaac Galliford slotted the ball past the keeper, but it was ruled out for offside.

The game had gone quiet past the hour mark but as Hemel were getting more frustrated, it went from bad to worse in the 70th minute when Joe Turner gave Tonbridge the lead.

The away side were performing the better following their goal, but Hemel broke Tonbridge hearts when Muir was their to score a last gasp winner to ensure that the Tudors took something out of the game.

Hemel travel to St Albans on Boxing Day as they look to turn their recent form around.
