Leighton Hold On For A Point

Leighton made the short trip to Colney Heath on Saturday under their new Management Team .

Colney Heath are having a decent season and Leighton were aware that this would be a difficult match.
Leighton started kicking down the slope but Colney Heath were the first to show any attacking intentions but they failed to create any real chances. Town’s first attack occurred in the 12th minute when they won a free kick out on the right but Dom Marsala’s cross was just a fraction too high for Kyle Davison- Gordon at the back post. In the 35th minute Colney Heath created a chance from a free kick but when the ball was headed back across goal the follow up shot was well wide of the target.
Three minutes later Town took the lead following a free kick on the right flank. When the ball was driven in Lewis McBride and George Dentice jumped for the ball but the goalkeeper dropped the free kick and Dentice was quickly onto the loose ball to knock it home. The home side appealed that the keeper had been fouled but neither of the two Town players made any contact with him and the referee who had a good match allowed the goal to stand.
Kicking down the slope in the second half Colney seemed intent on playing a long ball game to gain territory and in a 63rd minute attack they hit the bar but Town survived the scare. Four minutes after this Town went further in front when following a good move down the right flank involving Lewis McBride and George Dentice saw the latter feed the ball to Kyle Faulkner who had his back shot into the net. Town fans were now wondering if Town could hold onto their lead but they could have increased their lead when Dentice beat two defenders but the home keeper managed to push his effort over the bar. Charlie Jones in the Town goal had to make three decent saves to keep out the hosts but in the 76 minute they broke away down their right wing and the resulting cross was easily headed home to reduce the deficit. In the 85th minute Colney drew level when a corner on the left was headed home by an unmarked attacker. The hosts could have won the game in the last minute when a low cross was driven across and the follow up shot drew a fine blocking save from Charlie Jones in the Town goal.
Town will feel they threw away two points after being in the lead but most would have been happy with a point before the game.
Town’s next game is at home to Barton Rovers on Tuesday night in the Beds Senior Cup. Ko 7:45
