It should have been two minutes later when Richard Ellis was fouled by the Knebworth goalkeeper but the stopper made amends saving Ellis' spot kick.

Ellis wasn't to be denied though racing through and beating the goalkeeper to score his 11th goal from nine starts.
Blyth was forced off with a leg injury but that didn't stop the Saints opening up a three goal advantage with a strike from Matt Hatchett.
The Saints took their foot off the gas conceding two late goals.
This win stretches the Saints' unbeaten run to 10 games but they face a big challenge next week when they take on Leverstock Green Reserves in the Third Round of the Herts Intermediate Cup.
St Peter's: Barnes; T Gauthier, Wiltshire, Jones; Blyth (Stuart-Neal), Lyon, M Gauthier, Mardle; Ellis, Lee (Laffoley), M Hatchett.
