Town pegged back by Jake miss

The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK LEAGUE - By Terry Lynes

JAKE REED’S penalty fail­ure de­nied Low­est­oft Town vic­tory as two teams sep­a­rated by goal dif­fer­ence could not be sep­a­rated at the Am­ber Dew Events sta­dium.

There was lit­tle be­tween the sides but Low­est­oft will rue the dropped points af­ter top scorer Reed failed to con­vert the spot-kick he won mid­way through the sec­ond half.

Dork­ing keeper Slavomir Huk saved the poorly struck spot-kick and saved Jacek Zielonka’s header when the ball was re­turned into the box.

Low­est­oft’s best chance apart from the penalty came on 48 sec­onds when Reed slipped the ball through to Matty Foy but the young striker pulled his shot across the face of goal.

Dork­ing’s only clear cut chance came mid­way through the first half.

Travis Cole slipped on the turf al­low­ing Tom Tol­frey through only for Trawler­boys keeper Ben Dudzin­ski to save with his legs.

Low­est­oft came close when Zielonka’s corner was missed by Huk but cleared off the line by Jerome Beck­les.

Beck­les went from hero to vil­lain by be­ing dis­missed three min­utes from time for ap­par­ently kick­ing the ball into Reed’s body as the striker lay on the ground. STAR MAN: Travis Cole (Low­est­oft Town) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
