TEN MEN HOLD ON TIGERISHLY
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.
