There was more disappointment for Welling United supporters when their team entertained Hemel Hempstead Town in the Vanarama National League South.

It was their third home game in eight days, a period in which they hoped to accumulate sufficient points to take them into mid-table.

Amadou Kassarate started his two match suspension and Wings manager Warren Feeney was still without the injured Taylor Maloney and Taylor Curran so Christie Pattisson was given a start.

There was little to choose between the two teams in the first half. Warren Feeney’s team had the greater share of possession but it was the visitors who had the early half chances. Nana Owusu had a shot beaten away by Welling goalkeeper Myles Roberts before firing well over when a free kick was knocked into his path.

George Alexander thought that he had put Welling ahead when Pattisson’s shot was pushed into his path by Tudors’ goalkeeper Craig King, but as he wheeled away after slotting it home he saw that the flag was raised for offside and his joy was short-lived.

He then created an opportunity for himself with a strong run from inside his own half but the angle was against him and King was able to save.

In the second period, King dropped a Pattisson cross but it was hoofed away before a Welling striker could take advantage then, at the other end, Luke Holness wasn’t far off with a low arrowed shot. Stefan Payne got on the end of a good Welling move involving Chi Ezennolim, Medy Elito and Alexander and fired just over before the hosts lost their way.

Former Fulham and Wales winger George Williams was at the centre of almost everything that Hemel produced and had a couple of efforts from outside the penalty area, the first of which was deflected wide and the second drawing an easy save out of Roberts.

Holness had a long range shot tipped over by Roberts before another Williams shot was well held by the Welling custodian.

Ten minutes remained when the stalemate was broken. A short corner caught Welling napping giving Hemel a better angle for the deep cross. Owusu’s cross picked out Kory Roberts whose header back across goal clattered into Jamie Sendles-White’s head and into the net.

Although Ade Azeez had an effort beaten away in stoppage time, Welling weren’t able to claw their way back in.

That meant that Welling claimed just one point from the three matches and have dropped to fifteenth place in the league table.

On Saturday, the Wings visit Hungerford Town for the first of two away games in four days.
