St Neots Town 2 AFC Kempston Rovers 0
Tuesday, 11 December 2007
The Walnut Boys provided stern resistance at Rowley Park and the Saints had to work hard to take maximum points from this encounter.
Kempston rarely posed an attacking threat but worked hard to restrict the Saints to a handful of first half chances with Jon Hoggett and Kevin Byrne thwarted by Chris Williscroft in the visiting goal.
The keeper saved well from Mark Franklin on resumption and when he was beaten goalline clearances thwarted Mark Burrows and Steve Kuhne.
There were sighs of relief around the ground when Burrows made the breakthrough from Franklin's free kick after 75 minutes. When Williscroft brought down Byrne Mark Barry's penalty two minutes into stoppage time sealed victory.
