Ware 2 Norwich United 3

Another frustrating game as Ware allow Norwich a head start before storming back to almost draw level.

After a fairly nondescript first half the game woke up to provide great entertainment as Ware strove to claw back at least a point but they have to start playing like this for the full 90 minutes if they are to get something from this season.

Blues were the first to show on three minutes when Gareth Price fed Dean Mason whose shot across the face of goal was palmed away by Andrew Wilton. Two minutes later it was the visitors turn when a corner was cleared to Dawid Radomski whose low shot went wide.

Both teams were making chances in an end to end encounter and it was Ware next with Kambo Smith setting up Price for a one on one with Wilton. The keeper managed to deflect Price's effort and as the ball spun into the air it took a last ditch header from Mohammed Yusuf to clear the danger of it turning into the goal.

Price was in action again on 26 minutes, rolling the ball into the net only to be given offside but it was United who took the lead two minutes later when Christy Finch was free on the left to centre and Radomski was allowed two bites of the cherry, the second seeing him score into the top left corner Ashley Harris's goal.

This failed to lift the game however and both sides had their moments without looking likely to score. Ware in particular were guilty of pumping too many high balls towards a defence that was happy to head them away. Blues paid the price on 42 minutes when Adam Hipperson doubled the visitors' lead.

From the restart Smith went on a run that carried him through the opponents' defence and it needed a good stop from Wilton to prevent an immediate response from the home side.

The second half started with the afternoon's fog seemingly a little worse which suggested that Ware might yet have a reprieve through an abandonment. Five minutes in a premature end seemed even more desirable as United scored again, one shot coming off a post to Finch who made no mistake with his opportunity.

Norwich may have relaxed at this stage but Ware certainly started to play and from this point onwards had most of the game. Josh Oyibo came into his own and had one of his best games for some time.

On 56 minutes a Ware corner was cleared off the goal line amidst a flurry of activity as the home side began to press. Ten minutes later Oyibo went on a good run to cause trouble in the visitors' area followed soon after by a shot from Brian Haule that was gathered by Wilton before, moments later, the keeper was having to save from Haule once again though this time from a header.

With ten minutes to go Oyibo had a shot picked out of the air by Wilton but Ware were not to be denied. Two minutes later Price was brought down in the area and Haule stepped up to dispatch the penalty with ease.

There was now more pressure from Ware. Laurence Vaughan, making his mark after coming off the bench, engineered a shot on the turn as time began to ebb away before, with the 90 minutes about to be up, Ware got their second. Murat Karagul scored his fourth in two games, forcing the ball home from close range.

There was another chance in added time as Price shot from a narrow angle and across goal. With the benefit of hindsight a pull back to Haule who was closing in on goal might have been the better choice but it was not to be. The chance of a draw had gone and although there had been plenty of excitement in the last forty minutes, the home fans would probably have swapped that for what should have been a point or three.

Ware: Ashley Harris, Aston Goss, Alaa Oujdi, Ryan Hervel, Murat Karagul, Tom Bradbury, Dean Mason, Josh Oyibo, Kambo Smith (Laurence Vaughan 53mins), Gareth Price, Evandro Delgado (Brian Haule 53mins). Unused subs: Joe Reynolds, Jack Mace, Clarke Bogard.
