Jor­dan Shar­i­fian’s penalty save was also cru­cial.”

It says a lot that some of the boys came off the pitch dis­ap­pointed not to have walked away a vic­tory. We have to use this as a step­ping stone in our bid to stay up this sea­son.” Blancos joint-man­ager Joel Salomon said: “Ul­ti­mately For­tune got what they came for. We’ll learn from this and the pos­i­tive is we re­main un­de­feated.”

We also worked hard in the sec­ond half, play­ing up­hill on a slop­ing pitch, and scored some great goals. With the other re­sult go­ing in our favour we are right in the mix near the top of the ta­ble.”
