Clipstone had to settle for a draw against Kimberley Miners Welfare despite Kimberley taking the advantage with a mix up in the Cobras defence.
The away side punished Clipstone’s wastefulness with one of their few chances in the game.
Manager Dave Hoole said: “I was a bit disappointed we didn’t pick up all three points, but the performance was much better than the previous week. We weren’t good enough at Eastwood, and I wanted a response from the boys”.
“Early on, we didn’t get that, and an uncharacteristic mistake by Jason Foster led to Kimberley taking a goal quite well. But after that, we executed our game-plan quite well, and after a few words at half-time, we came back”.
Jack Siddall brought Clipstone level after the break. A quality goal left the Kimberley keeper with no chance of stopping.
Hoole commented: “Jack Siddall took the equaliser fantastically well, we had more possession and Sam Ogden only had to make a couple of saves. The back four were immense, especially considering their age. We also created some really good chances, but we need to polish up on our finishing and be more ruthless in front of goal”.
