Match report |
Rec regulars saw Grays’ upwardly mobile ambitions slowed on Tuesday night.

Blues scoring supreme Freddy Eastwood came back to give the Blues their equaliser, but in truth the evening was a frustrating and width-lacking affair for the home side.

Grays had most chances on goal and kept the visiting keeper busy with half-chances. But they also struggled to find their usual flair and were missing Leroy Griffiths – sitting out another match because of his recent red card.

Blues’ brand of on-the-floor football was thwarted time and again by a rejuvenated Magpies team which has been rebuilt over the last couple of months.

Ash put the visitors ahead in the eighth, slamming in a firecracker of a shot which left the unsighted Mel Capleton without a hope.

Dean Bradshaw and Lloyd Opara worked well together and tested the visiting keeper, but it was not to be and it was midway through the second half that Eastwood – fresh from trials at Charlton Athletic – came good with an eight-yard equaliser.
