Tough week for Histon in BetVictor Isthmian League, North Division
Histon have endured a difficult week in the BetVictor Isthmian League, North Division.
It started with a 5-0 defeat to AFC Sudbury on New Year's Day.
Next up was Basildon United at home last Saturday, which ended in a 3-3 draw.
Danny Gould gave them the lead after 19 minutes, but Adam Vyse equalised for Basildon after 34 minutes.
Lee Smith put Histon 2-1 ahead, and Ed Rolph made it 3-1 not long into the second half. But Basildon responded, with Jimmy Cox pulling a goal back just before the hour.
With five minutes remaining, Vyse made it 3-3 before Basildon had a player sent off in a fractious finale.
But it got worse last night (Tuesday) as they suffered a 5-1 defeat in a rearranged game at Coggeshall, with Rolph getting their goal.
Histon are away to Brentwood Town this Saturday (January 11).
