L'Equipe and Jewdinese settle on a point

L'Equipe and Jewdinese remain unbeaten following a well-contested 1-1 draw.

    JEWDINESE 1 L'EQUIPE 1

    L'Equipe and Jewdinese remain unbeaten following a well-contested 1-1 draw.

    L'Equipe were dealt a blow before kick-off when top-scorer Richard Fogelman, who had hit five goals on the opening weekend of the season, failed a fitness test. He was one of several players missing for the visitors, as well as Steven Black, so managers Josh Lewis and Dan Cordell were forced to play a few people out of their usual positions, including captain Mark Singer in goal.

    The hosts were on the back foot in the first half, but defended superbly, with Singer pulling off a couple of great saves to keep us in the game and the back four making some strong challenges. It was a frustrating half for Jewdinese who felt they had more than enough chances to put the game to bed as early on.

    L'Equipe opened the scoring on the stroke of half time after picking up the pace in the last 10 and with the last touch of the first half Jules Bohm got on end of a Josh Lewis free kick to put us 1-0 up before the break.

    The visitors came out for the second half fired up following a stern teamtalk from manager Darren Lawrence in which he stated "everyone relax, think back to last week and the win will come. There's no need to rush".

    The famous Lawrence hairdryer had the desired affect as Jewdinese equalised through a wonder strike from Ben Bertick and it was all Jewdinese for the remaining 20 minutes. L'Equipe soaked up the pressure and tried to counter-attack but a man of the match performance from Harry Brian kept Jewdinese in the game.

    Both teams had chances in the closing stages, but they were left to reflect on what might have been.

    Jewdinese manager Darren Lawrence told JC Sport: "It's disappointing not to come away with the result we deserved. Nonetheless, it is still a point so we can't complain about getting 4 out of 6 points."

    L'Equipe joint-manager Daniel Cordell told JC Sport: "We’ll take the point considering the amount of absentees we had. Next week we’re expecting a full attendance and look to continue our unbeaten start to the season.

    "Jewdinese are a good side and expect them to be there or thereabouts at the end of the season, so grinding out a point is sometimes the name of the game."
