St Albans City FC’s poor start to the season continued as Ian Allinson’s men couldn’t find a way past Dorking Wanderers at Clarence Park.
The visitors started well but the home team grew into the game and created a couple of excellent chances but the first half finished goalless.
Just ten minutes after the break though, Dorking went in front as striker Jason Prior headed them in front at the back post.
Buoyed by going in front, Dorking began to boss the game and Dean Snedker had to be at his best to keep out a low, driven Dorking shot.
But it was St Albans who were next on the scoresheet as David Longe-King headed home a free kick.
Looking to build on the leveller, Ian Allinson substituted David Noble and Joe Iaciofano with Sam Merson and Albert Adu.
But it was Dorking who finished the stronger and St Albans could have finished empty handed had the team from Surrey not wasted a glorious opportunity as the game drew to a close.
The Saints are next in action on August 24 when they travel to Billericay Town
