Lowestoft Town 0-0 Dorking Wanderers

Lowestoft Town drew 0-0 with Dorking Wanderers as Jake Reed's missed penalty for the Blues ensures a share of the spoils.

The Trawlerboys halted Dorking Wanderers' three game win streak, in what was the first meeting between the two sides in history. However, Lowestoft were made to rue Jake Reed's missed penalty which ensured the match ended goalless.

Lowestoft looked the more dangerous side from the start and twice went close through Matty Foy early on. In the opening minute, Foy slid a shot wide of the mark after being played through on goal, and then moments later his snapshot from just inside the box had the same result. The first major opportunity in the match came for Dorking right at the end of the half when a Travis Cole slip left Tolfrey racing through one-on-one with Dudzinski. However, a brave stop from the Trawlerboys goalkeeper kept the scores level pegging heading into the break.

In the second period, it was Foy again that was presented with a good opportunity to give Lowestoft the lead. After Reed's pass, the on-loan Cambridge man could not get any power behind his side-foot finish from close range and keeper Slavomir Huk was equal to the attempt. Reed would then take things into his own hands and after racing down the right-hand side and into the box, he was clipped by a Dorking defender and stepped up to try and put the penalty away himself. Once again though, Huk would win the battle and save the day for the visitors.

Late in the game, Zielonka's corner kick almost found it's way into the back of the net by itself but a Dorking man was there to clear off the line and away to safety. Lowestoft did manage to end the game with a numerical advantage on the pitch and in the dugout when Jerome Beckles was handed a second yellow for cynically preventing a counter-attack, before the Dorking manager was sent to the stands.

The Trawlerboys could not find a way to capitalise on this in the closing stages though and the away side held out for a stalemate. Dale Brooks's side now look forward to two games against Folkestone Invicta in less than a week, starting with Tuesday at the Amber Dew Events Stadium.
