When the fixtures were released for some reason this fixture caught my eye. The reason being that both teams are expected to be in with a promotion shout this season, so a decent game was expected. I was looking forward to going.

The match started and The Darts were the better team for 25 mins missing at least 4 good chances. Great build up play and excellent defense gave them a fully deserved lead. Just before half time Havant got a stroke of luck by the way of a hand ball by a funny bounce. H-T 1-1

Excellent strong coffee made the lack of chips irrelevant.
Second half was dominated by Havant but due to the strong Darts defense no real chances came until a bit of magic from No 14 who curled a beauty into the top corner of the Onion Bag , 1-2 with only 2 mins left.
That was harsh on the home team and in the 96th minute got a deserved penalty and duly obliged as the rain poured down. Full Time 2-2 both teams were excellent and it made it an exciting conclusion to a great day and at great modern little ground, which is well worth a visit.
