|BIG DECISION? - THE REFEREE CONSULTS HIS ASSISTANT PRIOR TO GIVING A YELLOW CARD FOR THE FOUL WHICH RESULTED IN HERTFORD'S FIRST PENALTY KICK. HERTFORD TOWN'S FANS LOOK ON FROM UNDER THE STABLE END|
|PLAYING AGAINST HIS OLD CLUB - GLENN DRAPER OF COLNEY HEATH|
Hertford made it 1-3 via the penalty spot after their player Tommy Wade had been fouled when just about to take a shot directly in front of goal. Most home (and away) fans were amazed when only a yellow card was shown as surely this was denying a clear goal scoring opportunity.
It was 2-3 when after a goalmouth scramble the ball was neatly placed into the back of the net by Bradley Fraser. Time seemed to be running out for Hertford as they piled on the pressure with Colney getting a few chances to wrap up the game on the break but they were unable to beat Harry Ricketts in the Hertford goal.

Hertford went into this match on four game losing run after winning four in a row so to come back to gain a point after such a poor showing in the first half may well reignite their season which was going well up until their recent blip. Another positive was the attendance of 145 which is their highest figure for a league fixture since they played Cokfosters on the final game of last season where the crowd was 159. They are currently in sixth place - 12 points below current league leader's Kings Langley who have a game in hand over them so maybe their best chance of silverware will come in either the Hertfordshire FA Charity Shield or the SSMFL Premier Division Cup.
In the HCS they entertain Leverstock Green in the Semi-Final on Tuesday evening and in the PDC they travel for an eagerly anticipated quarter-final local derby at St Margarestsbury on Tuesday 2nd February.
Colney Heath are currently in thirteenth place with their only chance of glory coming in the Premier Division Cup where they face a short trip along the A414 to play their local rival's London Colney in a Quarter Final game on Tuesday 2nd February.
