THE defeat to K Sports at Jockey Farm stadium was another contest that Rusthall should have won comfortably.
The home side were set up in a more attacking formation and K Sports FC were confined to defensive duties for most of the match.
The Rustics’ midfield pairing of Joe Fuller and John Phillips controlled the game and their accurate passing allowed Regan Corke and Steve Camacho to attack down the wings.
With Tom Cameron returning, the defence was solid throughout the match and K Sports created no real chances in the opening period.
The second half continued in the same pattern with Rusthall dominating but not finding the net, and then the inevitable happened.
Rusthall were launching yet another attack but seemingly pushed too many men forward as the ball was cleared and sent upfield.
The Rustics were outnumbered at the back and despite keeper Joe Cullip’s efforts, Matt Gething scored the only goal in the 68th minute.
Rusthall kept pressing with K Sports dropping deeper and deeper but the goal would not come for the home side.
They are at home again for their next match against Beckenham FC at Jockey Stadium on Saturday [November 3, kick-off 3pm].
