Sholing rue disallowed goal
Sholing were left to rue what might have been after last night’s 2-2 home draw against Didcot Town in the Southern One South & West.
The Boatmen thought they had put clear water between themselves and their Oxfordshire visitors when Lee Wort found the net shortly after they had gone 2-1 up.
But the goal was ruled out following the intervention of the assistant referee who said that Wort had impeded a defender before firing home from 18 yards.
“It should have been 3-1, but we’ve had a perfectly good goal ruled out. Worty did nothing wrong,” said Sholing boss Dave Diaper.
Didcot drew first blood at the Silverlake Arena with Morgan Williams belting in a 25-yarder midway through the first half.
Sholing levelled four minutes before the break when Barry Mason headed home Kevin Brewster’s corner, and they got their noses in front through centre-back Lee Bright with 53 minutes gone.
But there was double disappointment ahead for Sholing with Wort’s disallowed effort quickly followed by a Didcot leveller on the hour - Morgan James setting up ex-Thatcham striker James Clark to score.
