Hendon held to draw by Concord Rangers
3:39pm Monday 3rd September 2012 in Sport
Hendon’s poor start to the season continued as they could only muster a 2-2 draw following a poor performance against Concord Rangers.
The game started perfectly for the hosts as they took the lead in the 14th minute, thanks to former Woking front man Jack Mazzone. He scored with a lovely chip over the keeper, but his side were unable to build on the early goal.
The advantage was cancelled out in the 57th minute when James White scored for the visitors, before Tony Stokes struck ten minutes later to put Concord 2-1 ahead.
With 15 minutes remaining Hendon were handed a lifeline when Concord defender Danny Glozier was sent off for a second bookable offence.
Hendon manager Gary McCann brought on striker Greg Ngoyi for his first appearance of the season and was immediately rewarded as the substitute levelled with his first touch of the game.
As both sides went searching for a winner, it wasConcord who went closest despite only having ten men, but Stokes' excellent overhead kick crashed against the Hendon crossbar.
The game finished all square to leave Hendon still searching for their first victory of the season.
