SEKAJJA ROCKS UP TO TAME THE TIGERS

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Rhod Mitchell

NEWLY-PRO­MOTED Bog­nor Regis picked up a welcome point against FA Cup he­roes Truro in their last match be­fore they travel to Charl­ton Ath­letic next week­end.

The high-fly­ing White Tigers have now taken two points from their last three league games and this was an­other hugely frus­trat­ing day for the home team at Treyew Road, but a very sat­is­fy­ing one for their West Sus­sex vis­i­tors, who are without league vic­tory since Au­gust.

When City skip­per Ben Ger­ring headed them ahead from Noah Keats against the run of play in the 16th minute, the Cor­nish club looked on course for a rou­tine vic­tory.

But the hard-work­ing Rocks re­fused to roll over and a fine equaliser from Ibra Sekajja just be­fore the in­ter­val was enough for them to earn a pre­cious point, for all of City’s sec­ond half press­ing.

Sekajja hit a de­served lev­eler six min­utes be­fore the break, cut­ting in from the left be­fore beat­ing White Tigers keeper Tom McHale at his near post.

In the sec­ond half, on a dif­fi­cult pitch Truro did most of the at­tack­ing but did not cre­ate too many chances, with Keats de­nied by Bog­nor goal­keeper Dan Lin­coln.

At the other end, Seka­jaa and Fer­di­nand Takyi went close for the vis­i­tors. STAR MAN: Ben Ger­ring (Truro City) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
