Herne Bay 1 - 1 Three Bridges 1st

A point earned away from home

A much improved second half performance brought Bridges another valuable point against a side that strangely believe they are still not safe themselves.

Herne Bay certainly had the better of a scrappy first half in which numerous free kicks for what looked to be innocuous challenges were awarded to both sides. Neither keeper had been over busy until the homesters took a 26th minute lead. Mark Lovell looked to have lost the ball with a poor touch as he tried to break through, but the ball ran kindly for Connor Sanders to drill a low shot beyond Martin Grant, who then produced a vital save when he tipped a long range effort by Adam Woolcott onto the crossbar.

The half ended farcically with John Lansdale seemingly nursing a head injury as the referee allowed play to continue. With Bridges officials and some players railing at the referee for not stopping play, it was then the turn of the home side to complain as they thought that Oneill Odofin’s goal-line clearance came with his hand!

Bridges started the second half with a much improved tempo and were playing some nice passing moves. Just two minutes into the half, the ever busy Steve Sargent saw his free kick saved at the foot of the post by Jack Delo, who then managed to keep out Tony Garrod’s follow up too.

With Alex Rose becoming ever more influential on the left, combining well with Kieron Allen-Djilali, Bridges looked worthy of at least a point, but they didn’t gain it until six minutes from time when Allen-Djilali ran into the centre and laid the perfect ball into the path of Devon Fender, who steered his shot delightfully into Delo’s far corner.

Tony Garrod almost snatched a last gasp equsliser, but Bridges were happy to take a point from what was at times a subdued display.
