The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Joe Baker

TEN-MAN GLOUCES­TER se­cured a point in man­ager Mike Cook’s first game in charge, despite Hunger­ford hav­ing their nu­mer­i­cal ad­van­tage for three­quar­ters of the game.

City had the first chance of the game in the third minute when de­fender Sam Avery headed over.

But things went awry for the Tigers mid­way through the half when Chris Knowles was sent off for a stamp.

The pick of the few first-half chances fell to the hosts’ striker Odin Bai­ley who shot just off­tar­get from the edge of the area.

The sec­ond half be­gan en­cour­ag­ingly for the vis­i­tors as they cre­ated, and squan­dered, two de­cent chances, sub­sti­tute Rhys Ka­vanagh go­ing clos­est with a shot that was de­flected.

And the Tigers were as guilty, miss­ing a good op­por­tu­nity 15 min­utes from time when Jake Maw­ford blazed over.

Hunger­ford pressed for a third league win in a row. Char­lie TemGroten­huis fired wide and Dar­ren Fox­ley’s ef­fort was blocked on the line by stal­wart Tigers de­fender Sam Avery.
