Consett boss Kenny Lindoe believed his side’s 1-1 draw with Ashington at Woodhorn Lane on Saturday was a fair result.

However, the long serving Lindoe, having seen his outfit break the deadlock with a goal in the second minute of stoppage time at the end of the game, was naturally disappointed as they failed to see out the remaining minutes and consequently dropped two points when Andrew Cuthbertson putting the ball into his own net.

“It was a tight game all round really,” he said afterwards.

“I thought Ashington probably did enough in their concerted times of pressure to lead 2-0 at half-time.

“The pitch was proving to be very difficult for us to get the ball down and to play our normal passing game, but the same could apply to Ashington.”

He continued: “Second half it was pretty much the other way around – I thought we created more clear cut chances and were on par with Ashington’s first half.

“Gary Middleton said after the final whistle that he considered the 1-1 score line to be a fair result, and I thought so too.

“From our point of view it was annoying to concede in the last minute and to give up two points because I expected us to see the game out, but overall on reflection of the whole match, honours were about even.”
