Tilbury 0 AFC Sudbury 0 (Att 81)
Tilbury and AFC Sudbury played out an entertaining 0-0 draw on a cold and wet Chadfields afternoon.
Tilbury made just a single change to there line up, with Simon Peddie returning from East Thurrock at the heart of the defence.
Both sides had early chances. Kris Newby from 25 yards deflected wide, before Jake Clowsley went close with a header for the visitors on 13. Tilbury had the best chances during the remainder of the half. On 21, Kurt Smith crossed onto the head of Adam Vyse and Sudbury keeper Paul Walker made a fantastic save to deny the striker. On 40 Toby Aromolaran broke through and his effort towards goal hit the post and fell to the onrushing Kurt Smith who stepped passed his opponent and then crashed his effort off the underside of the bar and away to safety.
Tilbury had another good chance on half time, but again Walker came to the rescue. On 50 Ollie Peters was running down on goal and Clarke Bogard saved well. The game had a quieter period, before Tilbury stepped it up inside the last 5 minutes. Kris Newby again hit from distance and Walker had to be at his best to tip over. A succession of corners late on saw Sudbury defend well and Newby again hit from distance and just wide. As the game was going into injury time Sudbury substitute Panashe Mundawarara hit just wide with a one on one with Bogard.
The result sees Tilbury remain in 16th and in the pack at the centre of the league table. Tilbury welcome Soham Town Rangers next Saturday.
After the game manager Joe Keith commented " I thought we were a little unlucky. The match was played in difficult conditions and we defended well and pleased with a clean sheet against a side who have been in good form"
