Hawks boss Steve King was left fuming with a decision to award Wealdstone a penalty which ultimately changed the game on Saturday.

Kyjuon Marsh-Brown put the visitors ahead at Grosvenor Vale, and it was a lead their performance deserved at the break.

However, referee Aji Ajibola penalised Ramone Rose for a foul inside the area midway through the second half despite the full-back appearing to have made a great tackle.

Danny Green scored the resulting penalty, before sub Abobaker Eisa scored a winner late on for the Stones.

“I thought we had enough chances to win the game when we were ahead,” said King after the game.

“They didn’t really test us too much until the penalty decision, which I believe was completely the wrong call.

“They had players around the referee shouting for it whereas we are a quiet group, so to see our reaction to the decision says it all.

“The decision changes the game.”

However, there were plenty of positives to take from the game, especially when you consider just two players remained in the starting line-up that took on Hemel Hempstead on the opening day.

King added: “There is 100% more positives to take from this game than our last game, which is a testament to our lads as we put the team together at the last minute.

“I’ve got a completely new team together in two weeks and that’s not easy to do.

“I’m going into work knowing we have a team now that is capable of winning matches at this level and that wasn’t the case before.

“I am not finished yet either and there will be more changes.”
