Woodbridge Town earned a hard-fought point on the road at Hadleigh United to extend their unbeaten run to three matches.
The two sides played out a 0-0 draw in a match that was more entertaining than the scoreline suggests. Both sides created chances but neither was able to provide the cutting edge required to grab all three points.
The first chance of the game fell for the home side after 15 minutes when Joel Glover was slotted in behind the defence. He drove into the box and let fly but his effort was over.
Hadleigh went close again 10 minutes later when Carlos Edwards picked out Asa Milliard who checked inside and tried a curled effort from the corner of the box but Alfie Stronge was on hand to tip it over.
The resulting corner was whipped into a dangerous area by Edwards and was met by Sam Mills but Stronge reacted well again to keep the game level.
The Peckers had a chance late in the first half when a cross evaded everyone to come to Luke Mallett on the edge of the box who twisted and turned to open up space for a shot but blazed over.
The home side went close early in the second half when Regan Pelling crossed for Kyron Andrews whose flicked header was just wide of the mark.
They had another opportunity 10 minutes later when Mason Harvey unleashed a powerful strike from outside the box which was palmed wide by Stronge.
Hadleigh went close again with three minutes to go when Ollie Dunlop unleashed a thunderbolt from outside the box which looked destined for the back of the net until Stronge produced an outstanding fingertip save to ensure the spoils were shared.
Ultimately, neither side was able to make a crucial breakthrough and the game finished goalless.
