Carlos Indjai equalised in the seventh minute of added on time to secure a vital point. We were behind to a first half penalty given when the ball was driven at Cai Owens and he was adjudged to have handled the ball. Modern rules perhaps but how is he supposed to react quickly enough to get his hands out of the firing line?
With Aaron Jones suspended Paul Holmes deputised in goal for his first game of the season and he can be pleased with his performance. However, he almost gifted Llanelli the lead in the first minute with a poor kick out which went straight to a Llanelli player whose shot went inches wide. Llanelli dominated the early stages helped by some poor distribution by several Lido players. Finally, after 12 minutes Lido created a half chance when Sean Hanbury shot from distance and it landed on the roof of the net. Lido were putting Llanelli under pressure from Cai Owens long throws, Carlos Indjai flicked on one to the far post but Harry Davies was unable to turn the ball in. On the half hour Llanelli went ahead vis the penalty, Paul Holmes guessed correctly and almost made the save, spurred on by this Llanelli surged forward and Paul Holmes made a fine save turning the ball away for a corner. Another Cai Owens throw caused problems for the Llanelli defence but this time there was no one on the far post to convert the chance. Lido replaced Ben Keen with Josh Webber at half time, Sean Hanbury was unlucky when he chipped the keeper but the ball drifted just wide. On 57 minutes he was again unlucky when his goalbound header from a corner was headed off the line. A minute later Carlos Indjai fired in a shot which the Llanelli keeper did well to hold. Lido continued to dominate the game but just couldn’t find an equaliser, A Cai Owens cross was headed goalwards by Carlos Indjai but it could only find the side netting. Into the last 10 minutes and Josh Webber fired just wide having been played in by Carlos Indjai. After all that pressure Llanelli broke and should have made it 2-0, Paul Holmes did well to parry a shot which rebounded for a Llanelli player who with a gaping goal could only scoop the ball over the bar. It was a costly miss as Lido went back down into the Llanelli area and won a corner which landed at the feet of Carlos Indjai and he hooked the ball in to great celebrations as he secured a vital point.
