Middlesex travelled to Kent with a changed squad from that which suffered a narrow defeat on penalties to Suffolk on 9th November.
Middlesex started the game brightly but Kent had more clear cut goalscoring opportunities before the visitors tweaked their formation. This enabled the visitors to create a number of opportunites on the left hand side but Middlesex were unable to capitalise on these so the match was goalless at half time.
The second half saw Middlesex start in the same vein as they had ended the first period. Their reward came after great work from a corner when Aron Woldu turned and shot low into the bottom left corner to give the Seaxes the lead.
By this stage, Middlesex were causing Kent lots of problems but then gave away a free kick which the home side scored from to make it 1-1. With the game heading into the last 15 minutes, Middlesex again scored from a corner. An excellent header by Reeon Cook-Hardy restored their lead. With eight minutes to go a break down the Kent left hand side saw them equalise to make it 2-2. Middlesex had one final chance which fell to Donell Watt who connected brilliantly. However, the Kent goalkeeper made a wonderful save to keep the game at 2-2 which is how it finished.
Team Manager Angus Douglas commented: “I was really pleased with the way the boys applied themselves to the task today and the hard work and commitment of the group as well as the continued support from the parents. It was nice to give debuts to David Lopes, Joshua Addae, Jahrome Evans and Jenyo Balagun today and especially pleased for ‘man of the match’ Aron Woldu who capped a fine performance by also scoring.
