Blues edged out at Bow

PUBLISHED: 13:33 06 April 2011

FENITON were edged out by the odd goal in seven at Bow AAC on Saturday.

The Blues led 2-0 and 3-2 before losing to a late goal from the North Devon side.

There was, once again, a distinct lack of good fortune in the game for the Blues as they felt the home side should have been reduced to ten men when, at 3-2 to Feniton, John French was clean through when he was tripped from behind by the last defender who was very lucky the referee opted only to issue a yellow card.

Feniton were then left to play out the final twenty minutes with ten men after one of their players was sent off.

Boss Mark Kingdon said: “We did not get the rub of the green. Their lad should have gone by the letter of the law and the our lad has hurdled a sliding challenge but come down on the opposition player in an act that the referee apparently felt was a case of stamping, but that was certainly not how I saw it!”

The Blues boss is aware that his side still have work to do to ensure that they keep battling Honiton at bay in the battle to avoid the drop.

This Saturday they are at Cullompton Rangers and Kingdon hopes to have both Paul Dowling and Richard Austin available after neither played in the Bow game.
