4:49pm Tuesday 24th September 2013 in Sport
WELLINGTON were guilty of a host of missed chances as they marked the return of Derek Williams as manager by picking up a West Midlands League Premier Division point with a 1-1 draw at lowly Bustleholme.
After only four minutes, a cross from Paul Jones was blazed over from just four yards by Aaron Morgan who then headed over a corner from Sam Archer-Plane.
Saul Thomas missed a couple more opportunities before Bustleholme scored from their first attack on 38 minutes.
Jones was causing problems on the right for Wellington at the start of the second-half with Thomas and Morgan missing good openings.
At the other end, with Will Burley outstanding, the Wellington defence experienced few difficulties.
The Herefordshire side finally levelled when Jamie Yau played in Morgan whose shot was blocked but only as far as Thomas who followed up to score. Wellington missed further opportunities to grab all three points with Dave Price failing from the penalty spot and Thomas wasting two more good chances to win the match.
Lye Town 1 Pegasus Juniors 1 AFTER nine straight wins, Pegasus Juniors dropped West Midlands League Premier Division points for the first time this season when they were held by unbeaten Lye.
In a game of contrasting styles, with Lye’s direct, physical approach matched against the flowing movememt of Juniors, there were no goals before the interval, although Chris Mortlock twice went close.
Lye took the lead two minutes into the second-half when a long clearance found Robin Sheffield who lashed the ball into the top corner from 25 yards.
When Ben Price was harshly dismissed on the hour, Pegasus might have collapsed but instead hit back with even greater resolve. Ten minutes from time, Mortlock found Anthony Robbins who played a one-two with Sammy Harrison before crossing into the area where Kane Kahaki netted with a stooping header.
A dubious offside flag ruled out an opportunity for Mortlock as the clock ran down with Juniors dejected at the end not to gained all three points.
