Whitehawk 1 Tonbridge Angels 0 match report

24 March 2014

Tonbridge Angels missed the chance to pull away from the bottom three when they lost 1-0 at Whitehawk on Saturday.

A tight game was settled by Waide Fairhurst’s 57th-minute strike from just inside the box as Hawks climbed above Angels in the Skrill South table.

Tommy Warrilow’s side, two points clear of the relegation zone in 19th place, survived a couple of early scares with Jake Robinson and Danny Mills missing decent chances.

But arguably the best chance of the half fell to the visitors’ Sonny Miles, who failed to connect from close range.

There were chances for both sides after Fairhurst’s opener, with Angels denied an equaliser when substitute Luis Cumbers lobbed keeper Jonathan Miles, only to see his effort hit the bar.

Tonbridge play third-bottom Gosport Borough at Longmead on Tuesday night, the visitors’ having lost 4-0 to Cambridge in the FA Trophy final at Wembley on Sunday.
