Sevenoaks 1 Ramsgate 1

Wednesday, February 27, 2019

Frankie Sawyer’s 17th goal of the season earned Sevenoaks Town a point against mid-table rivals Ramsgate.


The game was the fourth meeting between the sides having also met in the FA Cup earlier this season.


Rory Smith put the visitors in front six minutes after the break, before Sawyer levelled things up with 23 minutes left.


Rams went close twice in the first half, Oaks young keeper Louie Catherall, playing his final game on loan from Gillingham, saving well both times.


Early on he blocked Tom Chapman’s shot, skipper Tom Ripley clearing for a corner,  and then kept out Gray’s effort, the ball falling to Kane Rowland who clipped the home bar.


Ryan Fowler had Oaks’ first effort, kept out by Rams stopper Luke Watkins, Tommy Whitnell was denied by Olly Gray’s clearance off the line and Ryan Makhosoni Khanye went close with two free-kicks.


Oaks survived a two scares soon after the restart, Rowland heading against the bar before Rams went in front just before the hour.


Smith and Gray’s short corner routine saw the former cut inside, before drilling a low shot into the far corner.


Oaks were level within nine minutes, Sawyer moving one closer to his pre-season target of 20.


Watkins racing off his line attempting to clear stumbled, allowing Sawyer to go past him, before rounding former Oaks defender Rob Saunders and score into an empty net.


Sawyer had stabbed another wide earlier in a fast start to the second half.


Chapman went close with a spectacular effort that fell wide of the far post, before Oaks had chances at the end - Alec Fiddis hitting the top of the bar and MOM Ryan Fowler firing just over.
