CMFL SOUTH AT HIGHFIELD RD

|HIGHFIELD RD ACTION|
Short mid week journeys are approaching aplenty as the season draws to a close and to badly quote Dave the flagman 'it's time for the camel to drink enough water before the drought', referring to the massive 7 week break before pre season begins!

The home side have a enough games to fit in before the end of the season to feed any hungry non league fan and tonight's fixture against Hucknall Town looked a good one.
It was Swanwick who should have taken the lead early on but Ash Buxton failed to connect convincingly at the far post seeing his effort fly over the bar. The confident start that Hucknall had made did though lead to them taking the lead just shy of the half hour mark when Gatland turned on the right hand side of the box and fired a cross goal effort into the far corner of the Swanwick goal. By half time Hucknall were looking comfortable but would definitely need a second goal to secure victory. The 2nd 45 minutes though saw the game develop into a box to box encounter, entertaining but little in the way of goal mouth action. Hucknall front man Thompson did break the second half drought though, his pace had threatened to do so on a few earlier occasions, on 88 minutes when he fired home after his first shot had been well blocked.
Hucknall's management team could now relax with that extra cushion and very shortly afterwards referee Allsop, who had controlled the fixture well, called an end to proceedings as the evening sun subsided to leave a chilly night behind.
