Resolute BORO' Draw against the Dolphins

By GBFC Site Manager

A hard working Gosport Borough earn a great point against Poole Town FC.

Going into the game Manager Craig McAllister was looking for better concentration from his players, after the loss to Wimborne on New Year's day.

The players certainly responded and gave everything in this high tempo competitive game.

With the home side starting the game well, BORO' needed to stand up against the initial probing from Poole Town, who were quick on the break and playing well.

Gosport's defence was looking very solid with Sam Roberts at the heart of everything, and making his tackles count.

After yet another challenge Sam went down injured and after treatment, had no choice but to call it a day, and he was replaced by Harry Medway which could have unsettled the defence but 'H' slotted in well and started strongly.

The Dolphins were pushing for an opening and with 15 minutes left to play in the 1st half Poole Town's Luke Roberts curled a low shot into the bottom corner of the net.

1 - 0 to the home side.

BORO" needed a quick response, and went looking for the equaliser.

With just 5 minutes to go before half time Ryan Pennery went one on one with the goalkeeper & cooly slotted the ball into the net - GOAL to Gosport.

Half time 1 - 1 with everything to play for in the second half.

Poole Town were throwing everything at the BORO in a good period of play for the home side, but Gosport were resolute at the back with Joe Lea having another storming game.

The BORO' Boys were giving their manager all the concentration he was looking for and matching their opponents, who are a good side, all over the park.

Both teams had their chances in the second half and Gosport were unlucky not to steal it in the dying moments of the game after yet another promising attack.

The game ended in a draw and a precious point for the BORO'
