Hendon were held to a 0-0 draw against Margate in the Ryman Premier Division
10:57am Tuesday 5th March 2013 in Sport
Hendon manager Gary McCann felt the Greens 0-0 draw against Ryman Premier Division playoff hopefuls Margate.
In a competitive game, the Gate almost broke the deadlock when Tom Murphy’s shot from distance was well saved by Berkley Laurencin.
The Greens best chance of the half came shortly before the break when Lee Angol rounded goalkeeper Craig Holloway but sent his shot into the side netting.
Ryan Dolby came close for Margate in the second period with a strike which was tipped over by Laurencin and they came close to sealing all three points late on.
A cross into the box was met by Joe Vines but his header clipped the crossbar and bounced away for a goal kick.
The Greens ended the game the stronger of the two sides but couldn’t find a breakthrough.
Hendon boss McCann said, “This was a point gained for us. Sometimes you feel a draw is two points dropped, but not today.
"That said, we had the clearest chance of the game, but Lee Angol was undone by a horrible bobble.
“Margate were very strong and forced the pace , but we defended very well in difficult circumstances, losing a key player early in the game.
"We were very leggy, didn’t pass the ball well and took the wrong option too often."
The Greens are set to take on Harrow Borough this evening.
