Hythe Town 0-1 Whitehawk

Nine-man Whitehawk survived a late Hythe Town onslaught to earn a crucial 3 points on the road in Kent.

The hosts could have led after just 5 minutes with Chris Kinnear heading narrowly wide following an early corner. This was followed up a few minutes later by a fast-paced attack from the Cannons, but it ended with Tom Carlton shooting well over the bar. The Hawks were dealt a blow after 16 minutes with captain Henry Muggeridge being unable to continue after sustaining a knee injury, with Rob Deda coming on to replace him. Both sides continued to trade attacks through the half, with the game being a physical affair with the referee letting quite a few questionable challenges go. Hythe looked quick on the break and 7 minutes from the half could’ve had the lead with Charlie Webster forcing a good save from Hawks keeper James Broadbent.

The Hawks started the second half with a chance of their own, though Lucas Rodrigues could only head wide a David Martin cross. It was however Whitehawk that made the breakthrough after 59 minutes following a free-kick which was taken quickly by John Paul Kissock, catching out the entire Hythe defence, who played in Duane Ofori-Acheampong to coolly finish past a stranded Ryan Nicholls. Hythe battled back with a string of chances themselves, but the Hawks could have sealed the points 9 minutes from time after a mazy run around the Hythe half of the pitch from David Martin saw him force a good save from Cannons keeper Nicholls. The task of seeing out 1-0 scoreline became harder after 89 minutes as scorer Duane Ofori-Acheampong was sent off for a second yellow card. 2 minutes later, the Hawks were down to nine men as keeper James Broadbent was harshly shown a straight red card after coming off his line to foul a Hythe attacker, despite covering defenders being in the area. From the resulting free-kick, stand in keeper Alfie Rogers made a fine save and the Hawks survived, taking a huge three points back to Sussex.
