Gabe Ruth-Pateman secures a point for WTFC after goal ruled out in stalemate at Brantham FC


An outstanding display from ex Brantham keeper Gabe Ruth-Pateman denied the home side the win with several excellent saves with the Woodpeckers only notable effort ruled out by a disputed offside decision.

Tom Lawson's effort from 25 yards after 6 minutes was parried for a corner by Pateman and a speculative shot by Harrison Bacon was off target for the hosts. Armani Schaar's mazy run after 15 minutes for the visitors but his shot was off target. Home Captain James Lee's header went wide of the post and Jordan Elongo's curling shot was again pushed for a corner by Pateman after 22 minutes and Aiden Phair's effort went over the bar after 36 minutes but goalless at the break.

Away Captain Sean Rea's shot just missed the target after 52 minutes and on the hour Mitch Knight's header failed to trouble Pateman. A controversial moment after 63 minutes when after a corner from the left, away Substitute keeper Danny Cullum failed to clear, Andy Crowe headed in but it was ruled out. Bacon's free kick after 80 minutes was tipped over for a corner by Pateman. Asa Milliard's shot again tested Pateman and in injury time Pateman denied home Substitute Charlie Iglesias twice in quick succession to keep the scoreline blank.
