With the King Richard coming into this game with only 10 men on the pitch, hopes were high for the Robin Hood that they could claim an easy victory, and when they went ahead after just 5 minutes with an easy tap in from Noel Rigney, those hopes turned to expectations. But the early goal stiffened the resolve of the KR, who managed to shut up shop until half time.

Apparently they came out in the 2nd half with a plan to snatch a couple of quick goals, and then hang on for victory, and the plan almost worked. Just 35 seconds after the break, KR front-man Charlie Esslemont went on a dazzling run and fired home a great equaliser from the edge of the box.

The KR continued to press, but it worked against them as the RH began to exploits the gaps in their defence and the RH once again went ahead on 55 minutes with a well-worked goal, finished off at close range by midfielder Timothy Sherwood.

But KR hero Esslemont refused to lie down and die, and once again went off on a spectacular run straight from the kick off, his final shot this time being parried by RH keeper John Cole Snr, but Esslemont's strike-partner Allan Carr was on hand to slip home the loose ball and KR were once again level.

The rest of the match was dominated by RH, who were desperate to claim a victory that they felt they deserved, but KR hung on valiantly to grab a share of the points.
