Late equaliser saves Kestrels

Wood­ley United 1 Thatcham Town 1

The Wokingham Paper - - FOOTBALL -

MICHAEL PORTER bagged a stop­page time equaliser to earn Wood­ley an im­pres­sive point against Thatcham.

The Kestrels looked set for a sec­ond straight 1-0 loss, but cen­tre-back Porter popped up with his first goal for the club to stun the ti­tle chasers.

James An­der­son handed a first se­nior start to Sam Guze after his im­pres­sive run of seven goals in seven games for the re­serve side.

And Wood­ley more than matched their op­po­nents, de­spite los­ing the re­verse fix­ture 3-0 ear­lier this cam­paign.

Goal­keeper Alex Reed did have to be at his best to deny a cou­ple of Thatcham ef­forts and the King­fish­ers took the lead on 68 min­utes with a quick break from Josh Hel­more.

But the Kestrels kept bat­tling and grabbed a point when Porter got the fi­nal touch in a crowded penalty area.

The draw takes Wood­ley’s league tally up to 10 points from 12 games.

WOOD­LEY: Reed, White (Wil­son), Turner, Ni­cholls, I. Ka­mara, Porter, Hinds (Samuel-Har­men), Guze, Beck­ett, Horscroft, Davies. Subs not used: Prestidge, Cooper, Bar­ley.
