As Farnborough tried to play their way up the field, Treacher played a ball into Ciardini’s feet on the left and he turned inside Hills and lofted a great through ball for Coles who sprung the off-side trap but volleyed his effort agonisingly wide when one-on-one with Minter.

A good through ball from Hanwell Town substitute, Ishmael was latched on to by Austin who got a bit of fortune as he cut inside of Fearn before firing a right-footed strike high over the bar. Pearce throwing his body in the way may have done enough to put off the visiting striker.
