Match Report: Hartley Wintney v Merthyr Town

Post by KOB - 29-09-2018, 21:06

Hartley Wintney v Merthyr Town, Evo-Stik League South, Premier Division South. Saturday 29th September ’18
Report by David Graham

Hartley Wintney and Merthyr Town played out a score draw in a very scrappy match at the Memorial Ground in Hartley. However, the South Wales side will feel that they should have gone home with maximum points having dominated for a huge portion of the match.

In a tepid first half, the Martyrs had the bulk of the play and produced what little quality was on show. The visitors took the lead on 10 minutes when a free kick on the left from Kerry Morgan found its way through a few deflections to Tom Meechan, who scored at the back post. (0-1)

The Martyrs continued with a distinct edge and on 19 minutes Kieran Lewis set up Ashley Evans, whose parting shot found Hartley 'keeper, Adam Desbois, well placed to save.

The Row’s first opportunity arrived on 21 minutes. A free kick to the left of the area was driven by Tyron Smith. Liam Eagle was narrowly unable to get the faint touch off his head that would have sent the ball inside the post and instead it evaded everyone and went wide.

Merthyr continued to be on top and on 28 minutes a throw-in from Connor Young was cleared to Kerry Morgan, whose cross saw Tom Meechan’s effort go narrowly past the post.

Hartley had the final effort in the first period when a rare mistake in the Merthyr defence allowed a chance to Josh Webb but his fierce drive from the edge of the box went over the bar.
Half Time: Hartley Wintney 0 Merthyr Town 1

On 47 minutes, Lewis for the visitors tried his luck from range and saw his effort go over. Six minutes later, with Merthyr still largely dictating the play, a corner from Morgan was not properly cleared by the Row defence. Evans saw his effort blocked before Lewis shot past the post.

It continued to be one way traffic towards the Row goal and a cross from Kyle Patten saw Craig McDonnell’s header blocked and smuggled out by the Row defence on 55 minutes. And soon after, the Martyrs should have increased their lead when good play by Meechan gave Evans an open goal. However, the visitor's skipper shot over an empty net, giving Hartley a lifeline.

On 60 minutes, a mix up by 'keeper Desbois and Row defenders resulted in Meechan having a good chance. The striker's effort was deflected wide by a last ditch tackle from Ty Smith. Five minutes later, a throw in from Adam Davies gave Lewis a chance, but Desbois was well placed to save.

Substitute Mikey Campbell for the Row created a chance for himself. His parting shot went wide on 73 minutes but it was a sign of Hartley edging back into the match and, 4 minutes later, a Webb corner saw Jacques Kpohomouh rise highest and he was unlucky to see his effort go over. A minute later the Martyrs should have again increased their lead when a long kick from defence gave substitute Cory Jenkins a clear run in on goal. With Desbois well off his line, Jenkins' attempted lob was too low and Desbois saved.

On 90 minutes the Row equalised. A good flick from Mikey Campbell set Nic Ciardini free on a run into the box before he was upended by a Martyrs defender. Ty Smith kept his nerve and blasted the ball into the net for what Merthyr and most neutrals would have said was a wholly undeserved equaliser. (1-1) [D Graham]

Quotes from the managers:
Dan Turkington (Hartley Wintney)
"I describe the match as terrible, terrible and terrible. We were terrible. We were lacklustre and seemed intent on trying to beat ourselves. But we knew somehow we would get a chance at some stage and, sure enough it came along. Mikey Campbell and Nic Ciardini combined well for the penalty and Ty kept his nerve well. In the end we were pleased to retrieve the point from a poor performance."

Gavin Williams (Merthyr Town)
"I am devastated by this result. We missed many chances and should have won comfortably, but credit to Hartley for hanging in to the end. Unless you get a two goal lead you are always likely to get pegged back.The pitch was difficult for both teams and there was little football played. Credit to our lads, they worked hard and definitely deserved to win."
