Macclesfield Town 0 – 0 Kidderminster – Saturday 23rd August 2014 – Vanarama Premier Division

Posted on Updated on

Game 14 of the 2014/15 season

An enticing game between two sides still unbeaten after their opening three games of the Conference season. Kidderminster opened as favourites, with a larger squad and arguably better players.

This was definitely not a game that saw much in the way of goalmouth action, with both defences coming out on top. Kidderminster has the best of what could be considered half chances, but they were always heavily pressured and could not trouble Taylor in the Silkmen goal. At the other end, the partnership of Dunkley and Gowling proved a typically stiff challenge. They have been in tandem now for a couple of seasons, and possess all the attributes to play at a higher level.

The second half saw Kidderminster with the majority of possession, with Macclesfield looking to break when in possession. All credit to the home side in that they did not allow this possession to be comfortable in any area of the field, with Turnbull in particular snapping away in the centre of the park.

A real gritty effort from the home side, which will surely tell when they face Wrexham away on Monday (a schedule which the Premier League clubs manage to avoid!)

Entertainment = 6/10
A lot of people may think this is an odd score, but the surprise of the result, plus my appreciation for the tactical display and work rate of the two sides gives it a just above average 6.
