First team footballers wasted chances against Bucks

Kingston men’s first team were unable to follow up last week’s win at Portsmouth and wasted all their chances in a draw against Buckinghamshire on Wednesday.

A fast paced match ended in a stalemate, despite both sides hitting the woodwork in the first half. 

In an eventful and feisty encounter at Tolworth, Kingston were the better side, and had the most opportunities to take the three points, but were again thwarted by the lack of end product.

Predictive Kingston

An inspiring Leon Schwier on the right wing was the creative player who caused the most trouble for the guests and looked most likely to break the deadlock.

Kingston looked one dimensional, with only Yaniek Monrose upfront, and the lone forward struggled to impact the game.

Few chances were created from open play, but when the set pieces were crossed into the box, the physical Bucks defenders had control.

Disappointing end result

The best chance came with 20 minutes left to play, as Schwier controlled a beautifully crafted cross on his chest to get rid of the defender. His volley from a tight angle was saved well by the opposing keeper.

The Kingston players left the pitch at the final whistle disappointed not to have sealed the win.
