Brampton 1 – 1 West Wratting

West Wratting completed the double over Brampton this season winning by the same score as a few weeks ago at Bull Lane.

The visitors, despite being without some key players, played the more consistent football and took advantage of two errors and some poor finishing by the home side to convert their very few attempts on goal.

Twenty minutes into the first period, Wratting got their first when an intercepted pass was pushed to an unmarked forward who had to run twenty yards and beat Jordan Porter in the Brampton goal, which he duly did.

By this time, the home side had spurned two chances to score, once when Alex Shepherd, playing on the left received the ball and blasted a wide shot when a side foot into the net might have been more appropriate, and Martin Turner hit one high and wide a few minutes later.

In the second half after 65 minutes Nick Garner on the right wing had a bit of time on the ball and finding the Wratting keeper way out of position, fired the ball into the net from 20 yards. It looked as though Brampton might go on from here to win the game. Instead the opposite happened and with about eight minutes to go the visitors took advantage of a defensive error to win the game 2-1.

Manager Wayne Ambler, later urged his players to a return to form, pointing out that half the season still remained and that a couple of good results could turn the tide.
