Last week at Swaffham the youngsters acquitted themselves quite well on a difficult pitch and on Saturday a very young team performed heroically on an apparently 'atrocious' surface at Felixstowe. Last night the Hamlet Croft pitch was sticky but very bumpy and in places the ball refused to bounce, but this is part of the boys learning curve, although those that make the first team are not likely to come across pitches as bad as this too often.

Kevin Kilkin and Robin Sturgess bolstered the side with triallist Richard Huxford making his debut. Richard last played for Partick Thistle and has been training with City for as week or so whilst international clearance was obtained. He plays right back or midfield and last night was at right back with Marcus Hering filling the problem left back berth. It was hustle and bustle end to end stuff to start with and Rovers took the lead in the 13th minute from a goalmouth scramble that included two super one handed reaction saves from Lee Pacey, but ended with Derrin Brindley scoring from 6 yards. As the half wore on the hustle and bustle ebbed away as City began to take control, but the half ended without the home keeper being troubled.

City's first chance of the match fell to Kevin Wilkin who was played onside by an injured defender lying in the penalty area, but Kev's shot from 15 yards was too high. A minute later Ryan Jenner cut in from the right with a mazy run past three defenders, but his powerful angled drive smacked against the far post. Now at last, City looked as though something could be gained from the match, but the task became almost impossible in the 63rd minute when Haverhill doubled their advantage. A combined effort from Liberatore and Wilson saw off the threat from a breakaway by Michael Beurbeum only for Huxford to roll the ball into the path of Ben Cowling who couldn't miss two yards out from an empty goal. Once the shock of this had subsided, Tom Pell was brought on up front at the expense of defender Liberatore as City pushed on. Wilkin reduced the arrears in the 82nd minute with an expertly executed chip from an acute angle. Inspite of intense pressure City were unable to gain the point their industry deserved.
