Little could be more daunting after a heavy reverse than an away visit to the current league leaders. However Brocton were good value for their scoreless draw and by no means was this a backs to the wall performance.
Most of Brocton’s early progress came down the left hand side where Ben Douglas coped with his defensive duties and added something extra when Alex Curtis and Joe Hartshorne needed one.
Curtis and Hartshorne carved out a couple of chances with Curtis early cross being met with a good defensive header and then Harthorne’s, shortly afterwards, going beyond the reach of the ever willing Paul McMahon. No shot on goal, but promising never the less.
The combination did manage to provide the ammunition for the ball to hit the net, but the home keeper had been nudged in the box and a free kick rightly given. Studley showed their teeth when breaking out on their right flank and a tempting cross eluded everybody in the box.
McMahon made good contact with Curtis’ next cross, after being set free by Ryan Burns, McMahon volleying just wide of the post. Then Douglas and Curtis combined and this time the eventual shot in a crowded area could only be beaten away by the keeper and McMahon could not adjust quickly enough for his attempt from the rebound to be on target. The half ended though with Adam Jenkins having to tip over after another swift break from the back by Studley.
The early moments in the second period could easily have gone the way of the Walsall Wood game, but Shaan Stuart prodded a dangerous ball out for a corner and although the corner threatened goal, the shot was blocked on the line.
Brocton grew in confidence after that moment and, whilst being unable to find that killer pass or shot at goal, continued to show enough that Studley needed to defend deep. The home side’s breaks in particular kept the tension high but so did Brocton’s own attacks with a welcome return of Marley Hamilton and a debut for Lee Osborne, both of whom joined in with the excellent work and attitude on show.

Brocton: Adam Jenkins, Luke Wright, Ben Douglas, Harry Phillips, Adam Robinson,
Shaan Stuart, Joel Powell, Ryan Burns, Paul McMahon, Joe Hartshorne, Alex Curtis.

Used subs: Lee Osborne, Marley Hamilton.
