Ware 0 Welwyn Garden City 3

Ware draw another blank as the Citizens move on in Senior Cup.

It's hard to know what to say. Saturday's point at Norwich suggested that we might be heading in the right direction and this may be why Kem selected the same starting line up for this game. His plans were, though, upset by an injury to Tom Coulton in the warm up which meant that Sam Butler was elevated from the academy to between the posts.

It would be easy to blame the defeat on a young and inexperienced keeper but Butler was one of the few home players to come out of this performance with any credit. Numerous saves through the game kept the score reasonably respectable and in the end two of the visitors' goals came from the penalty spot.

Sadly the second penalty with five minutes to go came about when Butler was left alone to deal with Jon Clements after the offside trap was sprung. Maybe the young keeper took his responsibilities too seriously but he brought the Welwyn man down resulting in a red card.

This meant that Coulton had to take the field and although he went the right way Clements' shot was well enough placed to find the net.

Before all that Ware had once again struggled to convert any openings and have now gone six games without scoring. Murat Karagul had Ware's best chances in the firdst half but was well marshalled by the visiting defence on one occasion whilst Charlie May saved well when the Ware number nine was on the end of Ahmed Abdulla's free kick.

By contrast the visitors were always probing and testing the Ware defence with Butler coming to the rescue on a number of occasions. There were hardly more than ten minutes on the clock when Paul Marks was brought down by Alaa Oujdi and Charlie Rome sent Butler the wrong way from the penalty spot.

Hopes that the second half would see an improvement were proved false and when Dan Bond was given too much space midway through the half and side footed home the game was effectively up. Welwyn Garden City go on to the quarter finals and a home tie with either Kings Langley or Watford.

Ware: Sam Butler (Tom Coulton 86mins), Gareth Madden, Alaa Oujdi, Ryan Maxwell, Nicholas Symons Lee White, Junior Appiah (Elias Siligato 74mins), Ahmed Abdulla, Murat Karagul, Nicholas Brown (Jamie Guy 40mins), Marcus Milner. Unused subs: Lewis Byrne-Hewitt, Harry Larner.
