Fog to the rescue for Horsham

HORSHAM boss John Maggs admitted it was only the elements which saved his side from certain defeat against basement boys Croydon Athletic last night (Tuesday).

Hosts Horsham were trailing 2-0 when the thick fog, which had already caused disruptions to the game, forced the referee to abandon the contest in the second-half.

Maggs said: “It was the only way back for us at 2-0 down.

“It was the right decision in the end. We said one of us would be moaning at the end when it is called off, it was a shocker of a performance.”
