Doncaster 3 Khalsa 3
DRAW specialists Khalsa are still searching for their first win of the season after sharing the points for the fourth time in six National League Conference North starts at rock-bottom Doncaster on Sunday.
Khalsa were rewarded for a bright start when Aaron Nagra’s short corner was stopped illegally on the line and Gurminder Ghattaura stepped up to flick the ball into the roof of the net.
It sparked Doncaster into action but the defensive line of Scott Angliss, Ben Stephenson and Jay Nagra did well to keep them at bay.
Doncaster eventually drew level from a well worked short corner routine, deflecting the ball past keeper Chris Hurst.
Khalsa were being pushed back slowly into their 25 yard area but Mickey Hare wasted a good opportunity following a promising counter-attack left Mickey Hayer .
It proved a costly miss as Doncaster swept down the other end to get their noses in front just before the interval.
Khalsa responded in fine fashion in the second half but Gurminder Ghattaura faild to hit the tgarget with just the keeper to beat, while Scott Cordon, Sean Robinson and Amritpal Atwal all went close.
Khalsa deservedly equalised when Alex Idoine’s shot was parried into the path of Cordon who neatly finished.
The visitors continued to press and Jas Singh fired them ahead from a short corner ten minutes from time.
But Khalsa’s hopes of registering their first victory were dashed in the closing stages when they illegally stopped a short corner and the resulting penalty flick was converted.
Khalsa entertain Wakefield this Saturday (2.30pm).
The 2nds came from two goals down to draw 3-3 at Sutton Coldfield with Ravinder Singh Hayer, Raghbir Baden and Navdeep Singh Hayer on the mark.
Khalsa 3rds were handed a 3–0 default win as Bloxwich failed to field a side and conceded the game.
