All-Square at The Vale

The Vanarama National League South encounter between Wealdstone and Whitehawk at Grosvenor Vale on Monday night ended in a disappointing goalless draw.

Mid-table Stones have somehow lost their way this season and that this was shown on an evening when they were pitted against a Hawks side equally bereft of goalscoring ideas and the apparent inability to string more than three consecutive passes together without loss of possession.

 

Effort was certainly not lacking from either side but shorn of their top goalscorer, the Stones have, for the time being at least, taken a step backwards in order to find a new way forward following several heavy defeats.

 

Two consecutive draws could be construed as a start on which to re-build the season but it is plainly hard going at present.

 

The home side made a bright start with Josh Walker making a decent run at goal and then a free kick - won by fellow loanee Joe White – was easily collected by Hawks `keeper Tom Stewart.

 

The visitors then made a foray forward and a chance for Chris Scales was charged down by Stones improving defence with Tom Hamblin and David Hunt forming a good partnership centrally.

 

Whitehawk’s previously dangerous striker Danny Mills did present what little threat his side possessed and he went close on 19 minutes.

 

But play then became increasingly insipid from both sides with creative play from the midfield areas at a premium.

 

Stones best effort came when Ricky Wellard volleyed just wide of the upright a few minutes before the break.

 

The home side tried hard to up the tempo early doors of the second period but this fizzled out and was disappointing fare for the crowd of 651.

 

The point apiece sees the Stones remain in thirteenth spot, while the Hawks remain third-bottom, but now only a point behind fourth-bottom Gosport Borough.
