Sevenoaks come away empty handed after heroic effort at Ashford United

Sevenoaks Town left Homelands on Tuesday night with nothing despite a dominating second half display.

Double figures chances came and went as Oaks laid siege on Jacob Russell’s goal, all adding up to a second successive Pitching In  Isthmian League South East defeat They trailed to Dover loanee George Nijah’s 44th minute goal, but “a few choice words” from boss Harry Hudson, had the desired effect on the performance, if not the result.

Russell’s busy night began midway through the first half, pushing away Freddie Parker’s header at the foot of his left hand post midway through the first half.

Tyler McCarthy then came to the rescue as struggled to clear a free-kick.

Oaks were on the front foot from the restart.  Ryan Gondoh went close three times in the space of seven minutes.

Substitute Omari Hibbert’s first touch saw his effort cleared off the line, then Gondoh was again denied by Russell’s block.

Dami Ollorunnisomo, and Parker went close, Hibbert shot wide. Gondoh was foiled twice by Russell, Parker blasted wide, skipper Corey Holder headed over the bar in the game’s final moments – following seven minutes added time.

Sevenoaks Town: Tyler McCarthy, Dami Ollorunnisomo, Karn Miller-Neave, (Omari Hibbert 71 mins), Emmanuel Mensah, Tolo Jonah, Corey Holder, Bradley Wilson (Daniel Hector 61 mins), Jordy Ndozid, Freddie Parker, Ryan Gondoh, Yahaya Bamba.
