The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK LEAGUE SOUTH - By Roy Mitchard

KINGS Lan­g­ley were given the per­fect start when they were awarded a penalty in the ninth minute.

It should have seen them go on and se­cure all three points but very soon the wheels came off their chal­lenge as they failed to push on from their elec­tric start to the game.

Mitchell Weiss chased down Or­rin Pend­ley as he shep­herded the ball back, and as the two came to­gether the ref­eree spot­ted a trip.

Dean Hitch­cock con­verted the spot-kick and Kings went on to have far the bet­ter of the first half, with a Bren­dan Ocran free­kick ar­row­ing into the cor­ner, be­fore Ethan Ross, at full length, su­perbly tipped it round for a cor­ner.

United came close with a Pend­ley header just past the post on the cusp of half-time, but they grad­u­ally worked their way back into the game.

It was frus­trat­ing for the home team af­ter such a good start.

As the sec­ond half pro­gressed, a Dior An­gus shot de­flected for a cor­ner and a ris­ing shot from Kevin de Yeiga Mon­teriro flew just over.

Kings were guilty of switch­ing off when Spencer Weir-Da­ley crossed low for An­gus to turn the ball in.

And it got worse for Kings five min­utes later when Ross Hamp­ton clashed with An­gus and the striker con­verted the penalty to leave Kings still search­ing for that first home win.
