This was frustrating game with more missed opportunities. In the first half, Spitfires created very few chances whilst the Lions had more shots and should have taken the lead but Leon made himself big and prevented a goal when the striker looked favourite. Spitfires best chance came right at the end of the first half when Dylan just beat the defender to the ball at the back post but the defender just did enough to get something on the ball to force the shot wide.
Spitfires had the better of the second half and had 3 great chances to take the lead but the Lions keeper made great saves from Samien and Sam and Harry couldn't keep his header under the bar late on. The Lions also had a great chance late on but Leon got down well at their striker's feet to deny him.
So 0-0 it finished which was probably about fair. The game went straight penalties and with Spitfires seeing 2 penalties saved, they went out of the cup at the first hurdle. Onto next week when we visit the Lions in their den!
