|After 14 mins Huntington was completely out of position when Koevermans had all the time in the world to cross to an unmarked Arveladze to easily convert. 1-0 to them. Huntington endured a difficult evening throughout.
The sucker-punch came on 56mins when a classic near post corner was powered home by Koevermans, who had easily lost his marker Bramble. Compare and contrast with the goal scored by the Belgians in Ghent - virtually identical.
Let’s just recall that at one stage in this tie we were three goals to the good. It takes a special brand of stupidity to toss that sort of lead away. So that’s the dream over for another season…….there’s always next year!???!?!!!
