PROMOTION hopefuls AFC Totton and Hamworthy United played out an entertaining 0-0 draw at Snows Stadium on Tuesday night.

After a cagey start in front of 871 fans, the home side began to pile on the pressure, with Conor Whiteley and Matty Burrows both coming close.

The Stags won a penalty when Charlie Kennedy was brought down on the counter, but Charlie Davis blasted his spot-kick over the bar.

The home side threatened after the break as well, unable to find a breakthrough, and when away captain Tony Rolls was sent off for a second yellow card the crowd’s spirits soared.

Sadly for the home support, Kennedy was also given his marching orders a few minutes later, and while Totton huffed and puffed the Hammers held firm to take away a point.

Totton sit fifth, ahead of Hamworthy on goal difference.

Elsewhere in Southern League Division One South, a hat-trick from Dan Mason extended Sholing's lead at the top of the table to 10 points with a 3-1 win at Melksham.

Lymington Town and Bashley shared the spoils in a topsy turvy 3-3 draw.

Hosts Lymo led at half-time through Ryan Batley's strike, before Harvey Slade equalised early in the second half.

There were four goals in the final 13 minutes. Jamie Webber's strike was quickly cancelled out by Stephen Walker, before Karol Skoczen put the home side in front.

But up popped Slade to earn a share of the spoils for Bash.
