The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK LEAGUE SOUTHERN PREMIER - By Colin Carpenter

QUITE how this match re­mained goal­less will al­ways be a mys­tery as Frome struck the wood­work three times, both goal­keep­ers pro­duced no­table saves and with the vis­i­tors’ goal in par­tic­u­lar seem­ing to have a charmed life.

Af­ter a scrappy open­ing half hour, Frome started to look the more dan­ger­ous and goal­bound shots from Sam Teale and Jon Davies were twice de­flected wide.

And, af­ter Kyle Phillips had made a good save to deny Im­manuel­son Duku, Davies thun­dered a left-foot shot against the vis­i­tors’ cross­bar be­fore Jake Jack­son hit the Kings Lan­g­ley post twice in the space of a minute.

Af­ter a slow start, Frome started to pile in­creas­ing amounts of pres­sure on the Kings Lan­g­ley de­fence, but their goal­keeper Xavi Comas was in in­spired form, and af­ter mak­ing sev­eral good saves, luck also smiled on him sev­eral times as loose balls came straight back into his arms.

How­ever, Kings Lan­g­ley could also have won this game go­ing close on sev­eral oc­ca­sions.

And, with the last kick of the match, a goal­bound shot was de­flected over the Frome bar by a de­fender to pre­vent a late twist in the tale.
