Abandoned At Half Time

No Lights!!!

AFC had an abortive trip to Park Drive Maldon as after forty-five minutes the floodlights failed. At the time the sides were level with a goal apiece.

There was only one change to Saturday's line-up with Tyler French coming in at centre back with Rhys Henry dropping to the bench.

The visitors took the lead on twenty-four minutes when L'heureux Menga took advantage of some poor defending by Forrest and calmly slotted the ball past keeper Walker in the Maldon goal.

The home side equalised on thirty-five when passing movement down their left hand side saw the ball go to Ogedi-Uzokwe who fired home. There was hope that the goal would not stand as the assistant referee had his flag raised but after consulting him the referee decided it was a goal.

Half time came and the floodlights that had been on throughout the game slowly all went off. A couple came back on but not enough to play the game. There was delay of some thirty minutes before the officials abandoned the game with the light not able to be restored.

So Menga' s goal will not count but the yellow card picked up by Adam Mills will.

AFC Sudbury: 1 Paul Walker, 2 Alfie Carroll, 3 Joe Claridge, 4 Jack Newman, 5 Julian Smith, 6 Tyler French, 7 Tevan Allen, 8 Jake Turner, 9 L'heureux Menga, 10 Dave Cowley, 11 Adam Mills
Subs: 12 Ollie Dunlop, 14 Rhys Henry, 15 Jake Colclough, 16 Louis Blake, 17 Jeremiah Kamanzi

So onto the FA Cup on Saturday and a visit from Aveley.
