FOOTBALL - Leamington held to goalless draw by Hereford

Leamington Editorial 14th Mar, 2022   0

LEAMINGTON FC played out a stalemate with Hereford as the Brakes extended their unbeaten run to three matches.

Chances were at a premium at the Your Co-op Community Stadium with Brakes goalkeeper Callum Hawkins rarely forced into action.

The result means Leamington sit 14th in the National League North table, nine points outside of the play-off places.

Leamington started the better of the two sides when Dan Meredith’s dangerous cross was claimed by Bulls goalkeeper Brandon Hall.

The visitors responded through Maziar Kouyha’s powerful drive which was comfortably held by Brakes stopper Hawkins.

And Hereford came close later in the half when Hawkins made a fine save low down to keep out Ben Pollock’s touch from inside the six-yard box from a long throw-in.

The Brakes then went up the other end with Dan Turner driving a low shot across the face of goal and wide of the far post after Devon Kelly-Evans’ shot was blocked.

Both defences remained firmly on top in the second period, with the two teams trading half-chances without coming close to breaking the deadlock.

The best chance went to Hereford’s Keenan Patten who saw a free-kick held by Hawkins at his near post before Momodou Touray bent a shot over the bar late on.

Leamington are next in action at home to Guiseley on Saturday, March 19 at 3pm at the Your Co-op Community Stadium.
