London Lions suffered their second defeat of the season after a late goal saw them beaten at Standon & Puckeridge.

Herts Senior County League Premier Division:

The first half lacked any real quality from either side, while the second half was much of the same with Josh Kennet and TJ Keterman creating the two best chances for Lions.

The winning goal arrived in the 79th minute after some poor defensive errors led to a free-kick being given away and when it was pumped into the box, the centre-forward headed home from close-range. Lions failed to create anything else and the game ended in defeat.

Lions coach Darren Yarlett said: “This wasn’t pretty on the eye, we didnt deserve a win but I thought a draw would have been a fair result as both sides created so little. I wasn’t happy with the goal as there were two seperate incidents which led up to the free-kick being given and we allowed their centre forward a free head at goal. Not a good day”.
