Just back from the game. Whilst we lead three times, I guess I feel satisfied at coming away with a point and the performance certainly didn't warrant a defeat. Margate were incredibly shaky at the back in the first half and the Sam Murphy free-kick was a case of everyone leaving it and it ending up in the net. They took their centre back off before half time.

In the second half it was us who looked shaky at the back and we didn't deal especially well with crosses (or stopping crosses). The own goal was a classic mix up....bouncing ball over the top...Ibe in hot pursuit....goalie rushing out....and retreating centre back heading it past him into an empty net. Andre's equaliser was a low grubber of a shot that seemed to catch everyone wrong footed and it went in at the near post.

Gary won't be happy with some of the defending but he will be pleased with the effort from everyone. Sam and Oli in particular had excellent games coming forward down our left side.

Lastly....the foul on Leo was a bad one. Could easily have done proper damage and could easily have been a red card. We missed Casey in the second half too. I hope he's not injured.

All in all, well worth the trip down and nice to see quite a few Hendon folks behind the goal and bouncing around when we scored. The Spanish (?) kids behind the goal were a good laugh too.....they were getting right into it!
