Hampton & Richmond were held to their first 0-0 draw of the season at Longmead Stadium. Both teams had opportunities to steal the points but ultimately it was not to be for either side, as the beavers goes seven unbeaten in the league.
Tonbridge Angels controlled much of the possession for the 90 minutes, looking very adept at moving the ball quickly from side to side in order to exploit space out wide. Tariq Hinds was a particular standout, earning man of the match with plenty of flair and skill down the right wing. However, the hosts were limited to only a handful of memorable chances, with Adam Desbois enjoying one of his more comfier nights. Luis Fernandez and Dean Inman, who will be unavailable for Maidstone due to the suspension picked up at Dover, were calm and collected in the box, repelling most crosses with relative ease.
The Beavers looked dangerous when they did win the ball back, with Connor Kurran-Browne disappointed with his tame effort after stealing the ball high up the field and charging towards goal. At the end of the first half, Jake Gray had a long range effort parried by the Tonbridge goalkeeper into the path of Dean Inman, who was caught by surprise and unable to direct his shot.
In the second half, George Hunt almost made an immediate impact off the bench, getting on the end of Ben Seymour's clever cut back inside the box. His first effort was saved, with the second being blazed over the bar.
Alfy Whittingham and Ben Seymour produced half chances from difficult angles, but ultimately the game felt like it had 0-0 written on it for most of the second half.
