Lion-hearted Lambs fail to clinch victory.
AGAINST last season's beaten play-off finalists, Nick Wright and Bradley Pritchard both hit Danny Potter's woodwork in a stop-and-start first half at The Lamp, but were unable to get a breakthrough, while Cambridge rarely troubled keeper Danny Allcock until virtually the last kick of the game.
Wright floated a shot from the edge of the area six minutes in onto the bar, while Pritchard's attempt came in a similar fashion on 22. Wright had forced Potter to save at full stretch from a blistering left-sided shot on 13, and Michael Blackwood hit a free-kick just wide of the mark on the half-hour. It continued in the second half, with Tamworth enjoying the lion's share of possession.
But the Lambs couldn't make it count and the home side were almost dealt a cruel blow, but Tom Shaw was on hand to clear Brian Saah's goalbound effort off the line.
