Ten man Harrow Borough fail to break down Bognor Regis Town
4:30pm Friday 6th December 2013 in Sport
Harrow Borough were unable to find a breakthrough against Bognor Regis Town in their goalless draw.
Home keeper James Shea was called into action early on against Bognor to deny Ollie Pearce.
The Reds created their first chance of the game when Steve Butterworth broke clear but fired his effort over the bar.
Rob Wolleaston went close for Dave Anderson’s side but his shot was saved by keeper Mark Zawadski.
Boro had the best chance of the opening period but Callum Willock tamely side-footed the ball at Zawadski.
Terry Dodd fired in a fierce strike in the second half which forced Shea into an excellent save.
Zawadski then made his best reaction stop of the game when he pushed away Butterworth’s 20-yard strike.
Boro’s Victor Osobu, who was booked for dissent earlier on, received a second yellow card when he handled the ball.
This left the home side down to ten men for the final 20 minutes. But in truth Boro were still just as likely to get a goal as their opponents despite the numerical disadvantage.
Anderson’s side had one last scare when the visitors fired in a shot which beat the keeper butsubtitute Adam Louth managed to clear the ball off the line.
The Reds resume their league campaign tomorrow with a trip to Grays Athletic.
