Hartley threw three points away after controlling the game for 75 minutes after Noaksey was sent off for deliberate handball through ill-discipline, lack of leadership, poor tackling, giving the ball away too easily and just simply seemed to switch off and reverting to long balls into no man's land which gave the opposition virtually total possession. Up until that stage Horley had spent most of the time on the back foot with some desperate defending and goal line clearances and just occasional sorties up the field and only testing Craig on a few occasions and whilst the Hartley forwards were misfunctioning to some extent in front of goal it was left to the two stalwarts at the back, the Eagle and the bald Eagle to score the goals, but in all honesty we should have been well in front by that stage and should have killed the game off , even though the team did not play as well as against Windsor, with too many balls overhit
and a strange lack of intensity. Having said all that I am sure it was a bit of a wake up call and it is not the end of the world and that the lads will respond in a positive way on Tuesday against Chessington.
