Lambs through to next round

FT: Halesowen Town 1    2 Tamworth

17 December 2005

Tamworth progressed to the 2nd Round of the FA Trophy but it wasn't an easy passage by any stretch of the imagination.

The Lambs were determined not to slip up to lower league opposition but got off to the worst start after just 7 minutes when Halesowen's leading marksman Nathan Lamey broek through the Lambs defence and produced a great finish from the edge of the area to give his side the lead.

Tamworth immediately fought back and 2 minutes later Nathan Jackson won a free kick on the edge of the area which Graham Ward curled into the far corner to level the scores.

The game then descended into a very scrappy affair that was not one for the football pursists. On a bobbly cold pitch ball control was difficult and inevitably meant that tackles were mistimed or fouls given away unintentionally and this lead to a disjointed feel and resulted in nine players finding their way into the referee's notebook - some through sheer frustration. However there were chances at both ends to put the ball in the net.

Ward tried a dipping effort through a crowded area which went narrowly wide, and Bampton headed over from a corner while at the other end Alex Cowley found time to shoot at Bevan from distance and Lamey tried his luck from even further away but screwed the ball well wide.

The Yeltz put pressure on Tamworth at the start of the second half but it inevitably came to nothing as the Lambs scrapped the ball away from danger.

Steve Melton fired the ball in from 15 yards just after the hour mark but his effort was ruled out for a foul in the build up and it took another 15 minutes for the next chance to fall to either side.

It came when home 'keeper Dean Coleman hesitated in collecting the ball cleanly and nippy Eddie Analcet siezed on the chance to pop the ball out of his reach and finish from 2 yards.

Anaclet almost made the scoreline a little flattering for The Lambs as the final whistle drew near but Coleman produced a great save from close range to deny the on loan Southampton man a brace.
