Team Solent 3 Andover New Street 2.

A defensive mistake deep into stoppage time robbed hard working New Street of an unexpected but deserved point at Team Solent on Saturday.

Matt Styles’s troops were once again depleted and the versatile Prince Xhamela led the attack again having been asked to drop back to centre half against Andover Town a week earlier.

Street fielded two debutants in army lad Shaun Manvell and Londoner Kevin Eric and were facing a big defeat at 2-0 down at the break.

However Xhamela struck twice himself after the break only for the home side to snatch the points late on.

Styles said: “We held our own for 90 minutes and showed real character.

‘We would have happily taken the draw but having had some pull out again on the morning and one of the cars getting lost on the way we were always on the back foot.”

Street are home to Pewsey Vale on Saturday at 3pm.
