First Clean Sheet In Goalless Draw

The Sports search for their first win of the season continues after a 0-0 draw vs Welling United

The Sports and Welling United shared the spoils on Tuesday evening after a goalless draw at Priory Lane.

Borough started the game the brightest with early chances from Gary Charman and Charlie Harris, but the visitors soon grew into the game by testing Sports keeper Bailey Vose, Bradley Goldberg coming closest for The Wings. The first, and probably only, controversial moment in the game came after 17 minutes as Sports Forward Nathaniel Pinney broke clear of most of the Welling defence and then appeared to be fouled by the last defender, however referee Ryan Atkin wasn't interested in the appeals. Pinney was again involved in the action shortly before halftime as he once again broke through but shot narrowly wide of the near post.

Welling came out the brightest in the Second Half with early chances in quick succession through Tom Bradbrook, with The Sports also having a good chance to break the deadlock moments later as Will Hendon did well to set up Ryan Worrall, who forced a good save from Wings keeper Dillon Barnes. Midway through the Second Half, Borough had the best chance of the game, with Captain Sergio Torres hitting a brilliant cross into the box to find an advancing Nathaniel Pinney, who agonisingly headed against the crossbar. Minutes later, Yemi Odubade nearly found the net himself with a dipping cross-turned-shot going narrowly over the bar. Both teams kept pushing for a winner, but the clock ultimately ran our before it came, so Jamie Howell's men will go on their longest Away trip of the season to Truro City this Saturday in search of their first win.
