Neither side looked capable of possessing sufficient cutting edge in areas of danger and, with incision so eminently in short supply, it required either error or inspiration to break the deadlock.

John's goal had both bundled into one, collecting a loose defensive pass and confidently lobbing the goalkeeper from 12 yards.

The strike was the only highlight of an otherwise poor match that had few clear chances at either end.
