Welling United 0-0 Hemel Hempstead

Welling claimed a hard fought point on Tuesday night, the result however may now mean that Welling need to win the remaining four games in order to claim a place in the play offs. But as Player Coach Jack Parkinson alluded to after the game The Wings are still in the mix with the run in now in sight.

Welling almost got off to the ideal start, Connor Dymond drove a free kick into the area, Jamie Coyle met the free kick with a looping header that hit the bar via the finger tips of keeper Laurie Walker.

This seemed to wake Hemel up and they then took the game to Welling. Spencer McCall made space for the shot but hit a low effort straight at Bailey Vose.

A last ditch tackle from Jamie Coyle denied David Moyo as he looked certain to score.

Hemel were seeing much more of the ball but with out causing the Wings defence to much problems. Karl Oliyide hit an effort wide from range.

The game then became very scrappy and disjointed with tackles from both sides picking up yellow cards, but The Wings went in level at the break.

Welling started the 2nd half rejuvenated and looked sharper. A deep free kick found Coyle in the box and after he managed to get his shot away, the shot was deflected wide for a corner.

A smart ball from Joe Healy put Jamie Philpot in the clear but he hit a spectacular effort over the bar.

In the move of the match, Dymond found Hall out wide before he crossed low for Bradley Goldberg but he put his outstretched effort over the bar, however he was offside in the build up.

It was Welling now doing all of the pressing as Hall saw a shot deflected wide for a corner.

In a rare attack Jordan Parkes dragged a shot wide for Hemel. But In the 82nd minute Welling had the ball in the net. Sub Tom Bradbrook flicked a header goalwards that Walker could not handle, Philpot slotted the loose ball home but the offside flag had already been raised.

Hemel then lost Connolly for a second yellow for a crude foul on Jamie Philpot as he slipped his man but was tugged back.

However try as they might, Welling could not find a winner as the quest for the play offs becomes that little bit tougher.

Welling head to the South Coast on Saturday to face Whitehawk.
