Town are left frus­trated

The hosts started men­ac­ingly enough with Dave Cook head­ing a Gary Clarke free-kick just over the bar and mo­ments later the same man pro­vided, this time for Mike Yianni, but the vol­ley went over. The best chance of the half fell to Kieran Byrne. He met Clarke’s pass with a pow­er­ful shot but that and the sub­se­quent fol­low-up were both blocked. Ian Bat­ten fired wide af­ter Cook di­verted John Walker’s cross into a danger­ous po­si­tion. The vis­i­tors were quick on the break and Kieron Mann had to make a good save from Nick Gra­ham af­ter they surged for­ward. An­other great chance for Hythe came just af­ter the break. Bat­ten and Yianni com­bined but the shot from Bat­ten went over the bar. Hythe’s des­per­a­tion to score left them ex­posed at the back and Mann had to make an­other good save, this time to deny Jon Pil­beam. The hosts con­tin­ued to be thwarted and keeper Mick­ele Czan­ner got down well to turn Lee Winfield’s shot around the post. Hythe pushed ex­tra men into their at­tack to get the win­ner and in in­jury-time Clarke saw an­other goal-bound ef­fort de­flected wide.
