Kirkley & Pakefield 0, Hindringham 0
HINDRINGHAM, now sixth, held a strengthened second-place Kirkley in an eventful Anglian Combination Division One match.
With Phil West away, Steven Hood took control and moved Jason Chilvers to centre-half with Kevin Tuck unavailable and Tony Walker taking his place on the left wing.
Miak Hallgren returned from Derby to help the club out in keeper Chris Cracknall's absence.
You may also want to watch:
Hindringham's midfield four, Tony Walker, Kevin Whittred, Jason West and David Coslett, set the tone, not allowing K&P an inch on a large playing surface.
Tackles went flying in, and when Hindringham did get the ball, they looked to keep it and get it wide behind the Kirkley full-backs.

Hindringham had the best chances. A great flick-on by Scott Gray fell to Karl Pask
40 yards out, and he beat the keeper, only for the ball to hit the underside of the bar and bounce out.
Jonathan Clipston and Coslett linked up well down the right and Clipston forced the keeper into a save. Hallgren's handling was
top-drawer and he looked solid throughout the game.
The second half followed the same pattern. Gray and Pask both went close, and when Whittred burst into the box, the keeper produced a top save low to his right, with Gray going very close with the rebound.
Hallgren produced a quality stop with 20 minutes remaining, saving right on the line from a corner.
Mark Franks and Toby Hood came on and played their part in an entertaining game marred by the sending-off of the Kirkley linesman after an incident with Pask, who was unable to continue.
However, it was a great point earned.
Next game, Corton at home, 2.30pm kick-off, meet 1.30pm.
