Amps earn point late on in tough match against Magpies - Ampthill Town 1-1 Moulton FC

The Amps came from behind to grab a point at home against a solid Moulton side. Joseph Evans gave Moulton the lead in the first half before substitute Jamie Cerminara equalised with ten minutes to got for Ampthill.

An early highlight for Moulton was an audacious attempt early on from the winger. He cut inside and tried to rabona it past the Ampthill goalkeeper but it was saved well.

The magpies took the lead shortly after this when the ball was won in the middle of the park and played to the left wing where Joseph Evans received it. He skinned his defender and his left-footed strike rebounded in off the post putting Moulton ahead in style.

Ampthill should have equalised later in the first half when a brilliant low ball was played across the box. Despite an Ampthill playing bundling in at the back post, it wasn’t converted. Moulton went in at half time 0-1 up.

Ampthill began to dominate the second half as they went on the hunt for an equaliser. There were various long range efforts from Ampthill players but none were of concern for the Magpies goalkeeper.

The Amps eventually found the leveller with ten to go thanks to super sup Jamie Cerminara. Phil Draycott received the ball on the left side of the Moulton box and his tricky, low ball was smartly flicked into the bottom right corner by Cerminara.

Ampthill could’ve won it in the last minute as they won a free kick in a dangerous area. This free kick whistled past the top right corner as each side had to settle for a point.

A solid result for each team, Ampthill remain in the play-offs whereas Moulton stay in and around mid-table.
