ACE JOE’S EQUAL TO GOLD-EN BOY OMO
WHITEHAWK 1 GLOUCESTER CITY 1
WHITEHAWK and Gloucester City played out a lifeless draw.
The hosts had taken the lead early on through Gold Omotayo, only for Joe Parker to cancel out the striker’s effort before the break.
“It was a game that won’t be remembered for long,” confessed Hawks boss Steve King.
“It was tough conditions with the wind and as a result shots were few and far between. A draw was probably the right result.”
Whitehawk took an early lead as Omotayo broke clear after beating a defender, before cutting inside from the right and driving low into the far corner.
The visiting Tigers looked to get back into the game as Chris Knowles headed just wide from an Ed Williams corner before they drew level on 16 minutes.
Parker managed to run onto a ball in behind and after beating the defence for pace steered his shot low past Hawks stopper Daniel Wilks and into the far corner.
Rhys Kavanagh provided a good outlet for the visitors, with the winger using his pace well to get through on goal only to be denied by Wilks.
Nassim L’Ghoul had the best chance for Whitehawk, but he saw his drive turned around by the post by Exeter City loanee James Hamon.
