Bracknell managed to halt a losing run with a hard fought draw against opponents Henley.


Bracknell managed to halt a losing run with a hard fought draw against opponents Henley. It was a game that Bracknell felt they should have won however as they seemed in complete control in the first half. They scored early as Alex Light bundled home Dave Scott's effort and the visitors continued to dominate possession. In the second half Bracknell's game fell apart. They allowed the home team to dominate the game and the whole half saw wave after wave of Henley attacks in an effort to draw level. And equalise they did; a Henley attacker was not closed down quickly enough and his strike into the D was deflected past Bracknell Keeper Tom Withey for another forward to guide into an empty net. It almost got even worse for Bracknell as a late short corner, needlessly given away, was struck onto Bracknell captain Ashley Holden's foot and a penalty flick was given. All the Bracknell outfield players looked on helplessly, praying for some luck; and they got it as the penalty attempt hit the post. The game finished moments later with Bracknell securing a point. Jake Bullock was a well deserved Man of the Match for his fine efforts at right back.
