Good performance which deserved more

A solid Kirk Hallam performance deserved the 3 points but found an East Leake team difficult to break down especially in the first half hour. Regan Atkinson having the best two chances but firing wide from distance. At the other end clearances from Dan Stokes and Alfie Miles kept the scores level and Josh Allsopp in the Kirk Hallam goal had to be at his best, tipping an effort round the post. Full backs Taylor Humphreys and Sam Price were solid as were the centre half pairing off Harry Foster and Ian Bailey.
As the first half drew to a goalless close, Kirk Hallam began to turn the screw in the second period and it was Adam Parsons leading the charge. His control of centre midfield and creativity just needed the finishing touches but Kirk Hallam couldn’t find a way through.

Worryingly East Leake were still looking lively going forward and against the run of play, on 65 minutes they took the lead. Their right midfielder evaded a few Kirk Hallam challenges although seemingly using his hand to evade Bradley Draper-Harrison’s challenge managed to get a ball across the box which Allsopp touched onto the bar but the East Leake striker was first to react and tucked away from all of three yards.
It was harsh for Kirk Hallam but went on the offensive straight away. They got their rewards when a Miles shot hit the hands of a defender in the box and Stokes did the rest from the penalty spot.

Kirk Hallam went in search of a deserved late winner. The best chance saw Parsons get in behind a tired East Leake defence but his ball across goal wasn’t quite gathered in by Atkinson on the charge. After a cup exit a fortnight ago it was good to get back to league action and get some points on the board.
