National League South leader Wealdstone were held to a goalless draw at fellow promotion hopefuls Bath City on Saturday.

The Stones were limited in chances throughout the game and were lucky to hang on at the end as Bath missed a host of good opportunities.

Dean Brennan made one change from the side that beat Concord Rangers last week as Billy Clifford came in for the suspended Conor Stevens.

Wealdstone had perhaps their best chance of the game in just the fourth minute. Jack Jebb’s corner found Michael Phillips who then headed down for William Edjenguele, but his acrobatic attempt looped narrowly over the crossbar.

After a tight opening period, Bath’s first real chance of the game came on 29 minutes when Noah Chilvers weaved his way through the Wealdstone defence, but his eventual effort cleared the bar.

Michee Etefe came close to a freak goal five minutes into the second half but saw his teasing cross bounce back off the crossbar.

Bath began to push forward a lot more in the closing moments and almost broke the deadlock in stunning fashion, but Adam Mann’s first-time volley flew just over.

Chilvers had the hosts’ final effort, but after cutting inside he couldn’t wrap his foot around the ball enough to get it inside the post.

Wealdstone remain top of the division and, despite dropping points, they remain four points ahead of Slough Town with a game in hand.
