Wealdstone settle for a share of the spoils

 Published on: 17th March 2019   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Wealdstone F.C

Wealdstone FC had to settle for a point after they took the lead against Bath City.

A Robbie Cundy own-goal in the first half was cancelled out by debutant Sol Pryce’s header half-way through the second half.

It took seven minutes for the Stones to register their first shot when Stefan Brown laid the ball to Godfrey Poku on the edge of the box, but the midfielder fired wide.

Ryan Brunt’s attempt after 10 minutes was the Romans’ first on target, Brunt’s strike failed to trouble Jonathan North as it trickled easily into the keeper’s palms.

North was called into action just two minutes later when Ross Stearn’s effort was pushed over the bar. 

The away side had a golden opportunity to break the deadlock four minutes later when Simon Mensah played Tarryn Allarakhia through on-goal but the Crawley loanee’s shot was well-saved by Ryan Clarke.

Allarakhia was involved in putting the Stones into the lead two minutes later when his cross from the right found Bath’s Robbie Cundy who headed into his own net.

Bristol City loanee Freddie Hinds was given his first chance of the game with a free-kick on the edge of Wealdstone’s box five minutes before the interval but lacked power and hit the wall before the Stones cleared.

Bath almost latched onto a Wealdstone mistake just before half-time when Christian Smith diverted the ball to Batten in the box before Batten disappointingly fired over.

It was a quick start to the second half for Bath when Stearn’s deflected strike three minutes after the break was fired over from 12 yards out.

Stones captain Jerome Okimo almost headed in a Danny Green free-kick but went just wide of Clarke’s net in the 65th minute.

Seconds later Swindon loanee Sol Pryce breezed past North and almost slotted into an empty net before Okimo blocked in the goal-mouth for the corner.

The resulting corner was converted by Pryce in the 66th minute bringing the Romans level.

Raynes had an audacious attempt not long after Bath’s equaliser but was wide of the goal.

Allarakhia was causing more problems on the left-hand side with 15 minutes to go, his square ball could not quite find David Pratt at the near-post.

Cundy tried making amends for his own-goal when he booted into the side-netting inside the final 10 minutes.

Hinds almost gave Bath three points late-on when his shot was blocked.

After a hard-fought 90 minutes, the Stones came away from Twerton Park with one point.

The Stones drop to ninth place but go four points behind a play-off position. Their next fixture is against Chippenham Town at The Vale on Saturday 23rd March at 3pm.

Wealdstone: North, Sheppard, Grant, Smith, Okimo, Poku, Allarakhia, Mensah (Monakana, 72), Pratt, Green; Brown.
