Martin Gutteridge took charge of his second game as caretaker manager, again starting with the upcoming under-21 players Brandon White and last week’s hero Ben Corbett, however the blues lacked a hero on Saturday for one reason or another.
The first real chances of the game came for the opposing side with 20 minutes gone. Ini Amaegbe pulled off a couple of excellent stops, the first from former Blue, Glen Draper. Five minutes later Colney Heath were very fortunate to still have eleven men on the pitch after the Colney Heath number 4 executed a challenge that many believed to be worthy of a red card. However, the referee only awarded a yellow for the Colney Heath player. The last 20 minutes of the half were tight and the two teams went in at the break level at 0-0.
In the second half The Blues had a few chances but were just lacking the final ball that was needed to pierce the Colney Heath defence. The visitors took advantage of this on 54 minutes when a miss-hit cross found its way in at the far post. They doubled their advantage on 65 minutes after The Blues defence went to sleep. Hertford pressed hard but were unable to convert their late pressure into goals.
Full-Time: Hertford Town 0-2 Colney Heath. (Att: 128)
