Witham were the better side throughout the game with the score a comfortable 0-2 at half-time through a penalty kick and a well taken goal following a swift break down the left hand side. The penalty incident could of seen the Hertford keeper sent off in a league game as it was a foul which denied a clear goal scoring opportunity.
