This was to be my final ‘early kick off’ as the nights now begin to draw in. Despite kicking off five minutes late, the Referee still played the full 45 minutes each way, as well as a couple of minutes stoppage time in each half, so it was very gloomy when this finished at 19.43.
R.S.G. had to win this match to progress from the group. A very even contest, that could have gone either way and it was only settled when the hosts scored a last minute penalty, the visitors having had a man sent off for dissent following the award of the spot kick.
