    • 23' Adam is then allowed to run a long way with the ball before shooting tamely wide from the edge of the area.

    • 14' Knightly's free-kick is flicked well over the bar by Edwards.
    • 13' Jarvis in full flow is brought down by Adam who is booked. Hard to know if it was a deliberate trip from Adam.
