SHOREHAM Football Club drew 1-1 at home to high-flying Lingfield in County League Division 1 on Tuesday (October 8).
Shoreham went into the game on the back of a 5-1 win over Dorking Wanderers on Saturday and took the lead after just three minutes. Chad Milner clinically side-footed home Elliot Quant’s right-wing cross from ten yards after a flowing move.
Mussels keeper Josh Heyburn kept his side ahead with a string of saves, before Lingfield equalised on 52 minutes when Harry Sintim scored from six yards after his first shot was blocked.
The visitors almost snatched all three points late on but Freddie Fleming’s powerful header was saved by Heyburn and Lingfield’s centre-back then crashed the rebound against the bar from four yards.
Mussels boss Bryan O’Toole said: “It was disappointing, really. We lost the battle and didn’t really seem up for it.
“We just weren’t on it, although never gave up. I felt we didn’t work hard enough or pass the ball well enough, so to come out with a point wasn’t bad.”
