An outstanding performance tonight was rewarded with a well-earned point away at Hastings. A side crippled by injury sees a few new faces slot into the side. Obersteller (from Welling I believe) and Plean bolstering the side.
It started well too. Despite some early pressure Kev Terry’s pin point cross found an inform Bradbrook to put us in the lead. Lucky to have him on the pitch as the car he was in had a flat tyre on the way to the ground.
Hastings are having a good run themselves and managed get one back by lashing the loose ball into the top corner at close range. 1-1 at half time.
Second half and Leatherhead really started to get into their stride. It was unfortunate then that Ibrahim was adjudged to trip a Hastings player in the box and concede a penalty which was duly dispatched. 2-1 to the hosts.
It looked like our play was not going to be reward. A header saved cleared off the line and a long range effort well saved from Semakula just two instances of our dominance.
Then when it looked like it was going to be tough justice Bradbrook struck again. He managed to turned superbly onto Eisa's pass, before unleashing a 20 yard shot that shot past the home shot stopper.
A good point against a good side with promotion ambitions of their own. Onto Harlow in the Trophy…
