Crane Rescues Rocks With Late Goal.

By

Rocks remain top after battling draw with Dulwich

James Crane's 85th minute header was enough to give Bognor a point in a hard-fought fixture at a cold Nyewood Lane.

Rocks boss Jamie Howell said "In the first half Dulwich were the much better team. We couldn't get tight to the ball and allowed them to play too much. Dulwich are a great side and so in the second half we had to risk it and put more players forward. We were better in the second half and with the goal late, in the end, it was a fair result.

In the first half we failed to get Dulwich under pressure as we were working hard to get the ball out of our own half. Its always difficult to change those tactics and when we did it paid off. I thought James Fraser had some good chances. Dulwich are an excellent team, and with the draw away to Hendon in midweek and now this result shows that we are going to see ebbs and flows in our form as is the case for during any season."

On new signing, Charlie Moone, who has yet to play, Jamie said, "We are delighted to have him. We hope he will deliver for us.

He has done so for most his career. We really need that type of player, someone with experience and quality of his to help out our young strikers like Jimmy Wild and Jimmy Muitt who can't always deliver goals every week. We are hopeful he will give us more of a chance of scoring goals."

Harvey Whyte hit a low attempt at goal for Bognor but it was somehow knocked off the line inside the first minute.

Dipo Akinyemi beat his marker easily before shooting low and forcing Dan Lincoln into a deflected save on 8 minutes.


Ashley Carew ended a good move by Michael Chambers with a shot into the side netting for the visitors on 14 minutes.

Whyte played in Jimmy Muitt who turned and hit it instantly but the ball flew high and wide.

But Matt Drage diverted a shot into the net after a short corner by Jamie Mascoll on 18 minutes to give Dulwich the lead.

Gavin Tomlin's 31st minute corner picked out Marc Weatherstone in the area and his header bounced off the top of the crossbar and out.

Whyte cut the ball back from the right and Ollie Pearce blasted wide his opportunity from the edge of the box on 35 minutes.

HT 0-1
On 50 minutes James Fraser threaded the ball into the area for Muitt who slid it towards goal but it was well stopped by Preston Edwards.

Fraser cut inside from the left to shoot high and wide moments later.

Deep into the second half, Doug Tuck won a corner which was taken by Dylan Barnett and his dipping cross struck a player in the area as calls for a handball were ignored.

Chambers was booked for time wasting on 81 minutes as Bognor struggled to create chances.

Sami El-Abd gave away a freekick but the cross by Ashley Carew was flicked away.

Fraser hit one from distance in a rare second half chance but it flew wide of the right post on 83 minutes.

But Bognor did equalise on 85 minutes. Whyte's corner found the diving head of substitute James Crane who nodded it in low beyond the goalkeeper.

Tempers flared at the end as Jimmy Wild for Bognor, and Preston Edwards and Marc Weatherstone all got shown yellow cards.

Fraser and Pearce went close for the hosts right at the end as both teams took a share of the points after over four minutes of stoppage time.
