Goalless battle at The Lamb

FT: Tamworth 0    0

07 October 2006

Lambs boss Mark Cooper welcomed back Bradley Thomas and Gavin McAllum to his squad, along with the two new loanees from Barnsley who made their debuts in Tuesday night’s three all draw at Aldershot.
He was though, forced to make three changes to the side from midweek – with Steve Burton, Emmet Friars and Graham Law all out through injury.
Stafford came to The Lamb without a win in 9 games, compared to The Lambs no win in six outings.

Both sides competed strongly for the duration of the first half with chances at a premium.
Stafford came close on a handful of occasions through a weak Kevin Street effort while their best chance came via Ged Murphy who couldn't get his shot on target on 25 minutes. Impressive Rangers captain Wayne Daniel headed over on the half hour mark, but both sides stuggled to make any real in roads in the first half.

Tamworth's best chances came via Taiwo Atieno who shot wide on 35 minutes and then headed wide on 43.

In the second half, Atieno almost bagged a goal early on but saw his attempted close range chip well saved by Danny Alcock and he also shot wide from distance.
Kevin Street forced Bowles into a telling save as the visitors pushed for a winner but The Lambs will not be happy with a denied penalty decision when Daniel appeared to bring Stevenson down as he shot for goal.
And in the final seconds of added time, Adie Smith's defensive header span goalward but thankfully for Cooper's men was dealt with by fellow team mate Bradley Thomas on the line.
