Oluwole Akinsanya double earns The Jammers a well deserved point

Two second half goals and a vital penalty save sees new look Maldon and Tiptree share the points with Mildenhall Town

Mildenhall Town FC v Maldon and Tiptree FC Bostik League One North Tuesday 9 January 2018

After recent departures Jammers boss Kevin Horlock introduced new signings Tim Brown, Derek Ubah and Eoin McKeown to the starting line up. Included on the substitutes bench were other new signings Olu Quadri, Emmanuel Katundu and Clyde Omdo-ikpo.

On a slick surface the game got off to a quick start with both teams playing longer balls through for their respective forward lines. Playing down the considerable slope Mildenhall tended to hit too long and many balls went out of play or straight to debutant visiting keeper Tim Brown whilst Maldon and Tiptree found it tough to get through a strong home rearguard. The home sides Claudio Ofusu flashed a 20 metre shot just wide before the visitors Johnville Renee was denied as home keeper Jake Hallet just grabbed the ball as Renee ran through. Clear goal scoring chances were few and far between and it took an own goal to break the deadlock after 29 minutes when a ball from the left caught visiting defender Grade Milende on the wrong foot and his attempted clearance sliced off his boot to finish in the net. Play continued to be confined to midfield where Harvey Brown (pictured) turned in a fine performance, and neither goal keeper was forced into any meaningful saves as neither attack was able to find a good final ball to get through either defence.

With the advantage of playing down the slope the visitors Renee featured twice early on in the second half ----firstly with a shot from a tight angle that flew over the bar then was unlucky to loose his footing as he almost broke clear. Mildenhall were handed an ideal chance to increase their lead after 58 minutes when the referee decided to award a penalty kick for what looked a pretty innocuous challenge but Matthew Green's spot kick was too close to Brown and he got down well to save and smother the ball. The goal certainly encouraged the Jammers to go forward with more purpose and Oluwole Akinsanya put a decent chance wide before after 68 minutes Akinsanya had more luck when Keiran Baileys ball in from the left bounced around the home goal mouth before Akinsanya got the final touch to force the ball over the line from close range. Play was now getting a lot more open with Akinsanya heading another Bailey cross over then visiting substitute Emmanuel Katundu fired just wide from 20 metre after Renee had played him in. After looking to be getting the upper hand Maldon and Tiptree were given a shock after 79 minutes when a quick break by Mildenhall saw Ofusu use his speed to leave his defensive opponents in his wake before drawing keeper Brown forward to then cross for Jake Chambers-Shaw to stroke home into an open net. Back came the visitors with Bailey missing a good opportunity from a 22 metre direct free kick that he put well over before Ryan Clampin's fine run and cross from the left gave Akinsanya a clear heading chance from almost on the goal line but he somehow put his effort over. Akinsanya made up for this miss after 88 minutes when a fine passing move by the Jammers ended with further substitute Ernest Okoh putting over a good low cross from the right and Akinsanya was first to the ball to fire home. Late last efforts from both sides saw Clampin again get down the left but his low cross flew across goal with no touch then Mildenhall's Danny Crow hit over from a good opening on the edge of the visitors penalty area to leave each team with a deserved point each.
