Match Report

Hendon slipped to another defeat on Bank Holiday Monday when they were unable to respond to a first half-penalty, harshly awarded against Dave Diedhiou. The Greens have lost all three matches in which Aaron Morgan has been suspended and managed to score only a penalty.

Things started to go wrong for Hendon in the warm-up when Oliver Sprague picked up an injury and Mark Kirby, who has had only 90 minutes of football in almost a month - and that 48 hours earlier - was drafted in as an emergency replacement.

The game itself rather matched a few of the Greens contests in that there was little to choose between the two teams, but Hendon’s inability to take chances eventually proved to be an insurmountable obstacle.

The only goal came midway through the first half when Diedhiou was adjudged to have handled the ball after Russell Short's clearing header hit him on the arm. The players were barely two yards apart and Diedhiou could not get out of the way or even move his arm towards or away from the ball.

Marc Charles-Smith had the responsibility for the spot kick and he beat Joe Wright.

Thereafter Hendon tried to get back into the match, but they could not find a way past a determined Borough defence, well-marshalled by Michael Peacock. Ben Goode, brother of Charlie and an unused dual registration goalkeeper for the Greens a few seasons earlier, was not desperately over-worked as a misfiring Hendon frontline could not find an equaliser.
