If you wanted to see goals then Aggborough was not the place to be. This was probably the most dire display from us this season that you are likely to see. In fact it was also a dire display from Boston too.
As usual the fan's game before the real game was a much more interesting spectacle. Eight goals and plenty of passion. This game ended up as a 5-3 reversal for us and to be honest we were outplayed by a tough Boston side but at least they played with passion.
So would you 'Kill for Kiddy?'
Yes. Most of us would so why can't the players. They knew that we needed to take maximum points from this game to put to an end this rut of draws that we seem to be getting into. Boston were there for the taking because they haven't exactly set the league alight have they?
There wasn't one player out there that was prepared to take the game by the scruff of the neck and get stuck in. The only one who looked likely was Andy Ducros but if the front runners don't run into space and challenge for every ball then all his craft goes to waste.
Sean Flynn wasted the best, the only, chance of the first half when Bo Henriksen picked up a poor back pass but after a collision with their keeper the ball ran free to Flynnie who lifted his shot high and wide.
Flynn had a better chance soon after but Bastock in goal for the Pilgrims saved easily.
The closest Boston came to scoring was from a Redfearn free kick which Brockie did well to tip over the bar.
HT. 0 - 0
The second half was to be a repeat of the first half with Ducros looking the most intelligent player on the park. He was prepared to take players on and beat them. He did this a couple of times soon after the restart, beating 3 or 4 men but his final shots were soft and went straight into the keepers arms.
Towards the end the Harriers fans made their feelings known by calling for Ian Foster to be bought on. Henriksen, who had been having a quiet game, looked like the one to be subbed but Ian Britton decided to take the midfield craftsman, Ducros, off instead.
Fozzie never really had much time to achieve anything and the game simply petered out into lethargy.
Bo had one last chance to redeem himself near the end but he was a shade unlucky not to connect onto Scott Stamps' low cross cleanly. The ball went out for a goal kick.
We had a penalty appeal soon after when Bo went down under a bit of pressure on the edge of the box but he went down a bit too easily for the refs' liking. I didn't think it was a penalty either.
FT. 0 - 0
Man of the Match is : Andy Ducros
Some would say Adie Smith but I think Andy was the only one who could come out of it knowing he had played well. It was the rest of them that let him, and us, down.
