Great Fight Back

A real game of two halves, which probably saw the worst and the best of Maidstone's development side. Playing their first game for 4 weeks Maidstone looked very lethargic and were second best in all areas, and soon found themselves a goal down to Gravesham. This was quickly followed by a second, but still Maidstone were off the pace. A third for visitors before the break looked as if the floodgates would open, but after a real hard team talk, Maidstone looked a totally different side in the second half. To a man everyone put in the performance of the season, and constant pressure was rewarded with a short corner that was converted with a strong strike by skipper Mick Emery. All of Maidstone's youngsters worked extremely hard and with good passing opened up the Gravesham defence and Simon Wood scored 2 to bring scores level. Jacob Taylor converted the best move of the match and Simon Wood rounded off the second half with a superbly taken flick over the keeper from a narrow angle. A fantastic comeback.
