Grays pay the penalty



Grays went out of the GLS Cup fourth round after a nerve-jangling penalty shoot-out at Stevenage on Tuesday night.

It was a frustrating affair for manager Mark Stimson’s travelling unit which was depleted due to most of his former Hornchurch contingent being cup-tied.

This ruled out first choice keeper Ashley Bayes – Carl Emberson took his place – as well as weekend scorer Steve West. John Martin was unavailable too and Stimson rested midfield lynch-pin Stuart Thurgood.

Despite the changes and a hard and physicals game Grays had their best chance late in the game. Vill Powell coming closest in the dying minutes when his 88th minute shot struck the inside of the post and trickled along the line.

Earlier Joe Bruce had been instrumental in keeping Blues out of trouble at the back as he made several key challenges.

With the scoresheet blank at the end of 90 minutes extra time was played and Grays found themselves in trouble when Gavin Heeroo was given his marching orders after a last man challenge.

Borough went ahead making the situation look dire, but Grays produced their best spell of the game and were rewarded with a great John Nutter goal from a free kick.

However Grays’ nerve failed in the shoot-out and Borough went through.
