REPORT | Ten-Man Bulls Share The Spoils

09th February 2019 by Andy Poole - Latest News

THE BULLS shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw at Leamington in a game where key decisions went against us as we played for half-an-hour with ten men.

Both teams looked to adapt to the blustery conditions in the opening exchanges as Kieran Thomas picked up an early booking for a robust challenge.

As the home side looked to get a foot-hold in the game, Jack Lane put in an inviting ball which just got away from Ahmed Obeng.

Our first effort at goal came just before the quarter-hour mark when Danny Greenslade fed Tom Owen-Evans who tried his luck from distance but was off target.

Then a free-kick from Owen-Evans following a foul on George Lloyd was cleared as far as Tommy O’Sullivan who fired wide.

An effort from the lively Obeng was deflected just wide before a free-kick in a promising position, which was taken by Jordan Murphy, was claimed by Matt Yates who commanded his area well.

The conditions meant that there was no real quality in the game as the first half went on.

Some neat play ended with Eliot Richards getting into a good position but his effort was well saved by the ‘keeper then a cross from Greenslade saw Lloyd’s deft header go wide.

As we started to get on top, James Waite’s first sight of goal saw him denied as Tony Breeden pushed the ball around the post but it wasn’t long until Waite made one count as he seized upon a rebound after Owen-Evans’ shot was blocked in the 33rd minute to slot home.

The home side levelled matters just before half-time when Jack Edwards was able to get in a strike that beat Yates to make it 1-1 but the drama did not end there as straight from the restart we attacked and won a penalty following a push on Owen-Evans.

It was Owen-Evans who picked himself up and fired the ball home with confidence to regain our lead, which we took into the interval.

An effort from Owen-Evans right at the start of the second period was straight at Breeden, whilst Waite and Lloyd linked up well in our next raid as the latter dragged his strike wide.

Breeden came a long way out of his area to clear ahead of Richards as he looked to break through the middle.

We were reduced to ten men on the hour-mark when Waite was given a straight red. It appeared to be for raising his arm but in fairness it was a controversial decision.

As the home side pushed for an equaliser, we stood firm and defended resolutely, with Josh Gowling at the heart of it all, to frustrate our hosts.

We still looked a threat in attack and Jimmy Oates did well to pick out Richards whose snap-shot went close before a great ball from Owen-Evans picked out Richards who capitalised upon some defensive hesitation to slide in and hit the side-netting.

The home side were awarded a penalty following a foul just inside the area by Owen-Evans and Colby Bishop stepped up to send Yates the wrong way and equalise with seven minutes to go.

As the clock ticked down, we were forced to defend in numbers as our hosts searched for a winning goal, but we also showed some attacking intent of our own, however it ended in honours even in a game where key decisions went against us.

It was another hard-working display where we showed plenty of endeavour and commitment.
