Mick and Nick Do the Trick
SB United ease into the last 16 of the Middlesex Cup, reports Andrew McGowan
This setback rocked Lord Hill, and they could have conceded again as the hosts drew a couple of sharp saves from the keeper, before a looping Shepherd’s Bush free kick, taken by Scott Brown, bounced off the bar and away to safety.
It was a surprise, then, when Lord Hill exploited a rare corner on the half-hour and fired in after a brief goalmouth melee.
Mounting pressure saw two goals for the home side disallowed, as their superior passing and mobility began to tell. Nevertheless it was late in the game before a hard-won corner was lofted back into the box after an initial clearance, for Michael Matier to convert from close in. Lord Hill were reduced to optimistic balls over the top as the hosts saw out the game.
