The Nomads travelled to newly-promoted Angle on Saturday looking to regain some positive form after last week’s performance at Herbrandston. With a couple of changes in personnel together with some positional changes, there was a degree of optimism that they could come away with a win. However it was the home side which took the lead after 25 minutes when a sloppy exchange between the visitor’s defence allowed an Angle striker to take advantage, latch on to the ball and efficiently slot the ball to the right hand side of on-coming keeper Patrick Hannon. The remainder of the half was reflected by 50/50 possession and it remained 1-0 at the break.
The second period began in a similar fashion, albeit that the Nomads did begin to initiate some positive attacks via the flanks. Half way through the half, a lovely through ball was neatly passed in to the path of foraging mid-fielder Gary Power who adeptly side-footed the ball past the Angle keeper. Although Neyland managed to create a few more chances and slot the ball in to the home side’s net on one more occasion, the referee adjudged that the final pass found a player in an off-side position. So the Nomads had to settle for what was a disappointing draw with the prospect of a much stiffer test next week when they entertain Merlin’s Bridge.
