Harriers go out to a go go goal

You would have thought that with nothing to lose in this Cup tie that we would have gone out to get a few goals.  Jan chose to go with a more attacking line-up with Simon Brown, Kelvin Langmead, Ian Foster and Jesper Christiansen in the frontline but we hardly managed to get a single shot on goal throughout the game.

It's all a matter of confidence and that won't come if we don't start scoring some goals.

There was no start for Iyseden Christie, not even on the bench, or for Youssou Diop who was on there.

In front of over 3,200 mainly Rovers fans it was a quiet start to the game from both sides but eventually Rovers started to test John Danby, in goal for the Harriers.  Christian Edwards sent a Craig Hinton cross over the crossbar, before Danby got down well to his left to make a good save from Richard Walker, a close season target of Jans.

There was another chance for Edwards and then one each for Paul Trollope and Lee Thorpe before we saw a shot from Simon Brown that the Rovers keeper, Miller, only just managed to push away.

That was the only shot on goal from us during the entire forty five minutes.

HT. 0 - 0

This next half saw Rovers continue their domination of the game with just a slight improvement from the Harriers that saw a shot from Langmead saved well by Miller in the opening period.

Thorpe had another pop at goal following a Hinton cross and then Brownie volleyed over for us.

Craig Hinton was having a good game for his new club.  Probably an urge to do well against his old one as he decided to have a go for himself and saw his cross come shot go just wide of the far post.

It was a clearance from Craig that was to lead to the goal for the Gas.  It was played straight to the feet of Junior Agogo, who had come on just minutes earlier, he turned his man on the halfway line then played a ball across the park to Jamie Forrester.  Agogo then overlapped and made his way to the far post to collect and slot the ball home.

Agogo had another scoring attempt in the closing minutes of the game when his header was well saved by Danby and then with the seconds ticking away Diops' volley was equally well stopped by Miller.

Will our luck ever turn? This Saturday?

FT. 1 - 0
