REDS HAIL PIGGON’S LAST-GASP LEV­ELLER

The Non-League Football Paper - - SATURDAY MATCH CENTRE - By Andy Ed­wards

RED­DITCH played the get out of jail card for the sec­ond time in a week, pro­duc­ing a 90th minute equaliser to grab a point at the Trico Sta­dium.

The Reds de­nied lead­ers Ket­ter­ing with a 95th minute strike in a 4-4 thriller on Tuesday and this time kept at their game, re­strict­ing the vis­i­tors to just one goal at half-time.

In truth it could have been four or five, with Adam Mar­riott him­self hav­ing chances to get a hat-trick at least but he was de­nied three times by goal­keeper Reece Fran­cis.

Lynn en­joyed al­most to­tal pos­ses­sion in the first half and took a de­served lead on 31 min­utes when Mar­riot went close but his shot came off the de­fence and cap­tain Michael Cly­nan net­ted the re­bound.

The sec­ond half was more even, with Lynn con­tin­u­ing to play their pass­ing game but look­ing less threat­en­ing, although Craig Parker shot just wide on 54 min­utes.

For Red­ditch, Shaq Leach­man-Whit­ting­ham saw a shot de­flect wide on 61 min­utes and Ryan Hawkins went close be­fore a long ball into the box right on full time was turned in by sub­sti­tute Mitchell Piggon.

Even then, Red­ditch had a chance to win it in in­jury time through Leach­man-Whit­ting­ham, but his shot was saved by Alexan­der Street in goal.
