Hildenborough went in to the game missing a couple of players through spension but still went with an attacking line–up and the first eight minutes were crazy with both teams going all out attack.
Within thirty seconds of the kick off Hildenborough took the lead a ball into the box was met by Karl Smith he was unlucky not to score with the ball hitting the bar but Scott Lock followed up and netted from close range.

There was also time for Karl to hit the post with a free kick when the keeper was beaten.
The second half was a different story and Forest Park came out a much changed side, putting far more pressure on Hildenborough defence and took the game to the hosts and seeing allot more of the ball but with out having any real clear cut chances.
The pressure told and Forest park scored their third goal on the 70th min a ball was cut back to an on running player who scored from close range.
The major turning point of the game was Luke Piscina was booked although no-one was really sure why, Piscina was kicked by a defender when the defender was clearing the ball again the referee made another bad dision when minutes later he gave a free – kick for a back pass although it clearly wasn’t a back pass the whole team were back on the line the ball was cleared but Luke was fouled badly on the line he went too closely to the referee asking if he was going to do anything but instead he reached for the card and handed Piscina a second yellow and wrongly sent him off.
With five minutes left Forest levelled after bad defending on the left Forest scored at the near post.
Hildenborough felt after the first half they dropped their level and dropped to deep allowing the away team to push on but the task was made even harder by poor refereeing disions.
