Daventry visited The OVAL looking to avenge their narrow 1 nil defeat earlier in the season.
The first half saw very little goalmouth action and no real clear cut chances were created by either team. The Greenbacks probably edged the first half on possession but were unable to create much in the way of scoring opportunities. Daventry looked like they were going to be happy with a point and were looking to slow the game down at every opportunity. it was going to be either a mistake or a moment of brilliance that would settle this game. Unfortunately for the paying spectators neither happened. The Second half followed the same pattern as the first and Daventry’s tactic of slowing the game down was working and with both teams giving away needless freekicks there was no real flow to either sides play.
Daventry were by far the happier at the end of the game with a point and on the balance of play neither side really deserved to come away with 3 points.
