Match Report

Hendon made the long trip to Suffolk on Tuesday evening to play Bury Town, and will have been pleased to come away with a point following a 2-2 draw. However, it was a game that they could have won, having been the better side, particularly in the second half.

Gary McCann made three changes to the starting line up, with Eddie Munnelly, Casey Maclaren and Belal Aite-Ouakrim replacing Danny Dyer, Lubomir Guentchev and Aaron Morgan, the latter three all dropping to the bench.

The Greens didn't know what had hit them in the opening minutes as Bury hit them hard and quick with some incisive forward play. Early in the game the home side fired a free kick wide of the goal, and shortly afterwards Berkley Laurencin made a good save to tip the ball over the bar.

However, in the 6th minute, Laurencin was left helpless when his defence failed to clear a free kick, and Lee Reed was left with a tap in from close range.

The goal appeared to spark the Greens into life, and they were level in the 14th minute. Scott Cousins fed the ball to Kevin Maclaren who made a run into the Bury half. He then passed the ball to Aite-Ouakrim who turned his defender, carried the ball across the edge of the 18 yard box and fired home a fine shot into the net.

Bury regained the lead in the 35th minute when a free kick was delivered deep into the 6 yard box where an unmarked Bury player headed the ball across the goal for Chris Henderson to head home.

From the restart, Hendon played the ball back to Berkley Laurencin who cleared the ball into the path of Jamie Busby. The midfielder then made a good run into the box, but to his horror, his shot bounced off the post and away to safety when it appeared to be easier to score.

Before half-time, Busby saw a free kick go wide of the goal, whilst Aite-Ouakrim saw a volley saved by the keeper and Daniel Wishart had a header go over the bar.

The Greens took control of the game in the second half, and were by far and away the better side.

Following a period of pressure, the deserved equaliser came on the hour mark. James Parker carried the ball out of defence and into the opposition half. He passed the ball to Casey Maclaren who in turn fed the ball into the path of Aite-Ouakrim who beat his defender and finished clinically.

Both sides had half-chances to win the game, but the respective defences held firm to earn their sides a share of the spoils.
