KIRKLEY'S six-match winning run came to a halt as visitors Walsham-le-Willows got the point they came for.

At times Walsham put nine men behind the ball during the 90 minutes with Kirkley unable to break them down. The visitors had the first attempt on nine minutes, but Steve Holder's header had no power and after that, in a feisty and torrid first half that threatened to boil over at times, Kirkley had all the play winning the corner count.

Nathan Stone's shot hit the inside of the post and came out on 29 minutes, but this was the closest K&P came. Chris Henderson stabbed the ball straight into the keepers arms with a gaping goal in front of him as the Henderson, Russell Stock and Stone combination set up many moves.

Second half pressure by Kirkley started with Justin Fox's neat chip bouncing a yard wide, then Henderson slid the ball likewise passed the far post.

Two strong penalty appeals went against Kirkley, while man of the match Taz Grint hit the side netting as Willows continued to defend.

As time ran out Henderson and Stock got in the way of each other with a free header awaiting from Grint's inviting cross.

K&P: Woodcock, Grint, Blois, Jefford, Manning, Harvey-Cooper, Martin, Fox, Stone, Stock, Henderson.

Subs: French, Boggis, Haverson.
