13/02/2014 – WMRL – Bilston Town 0 Wellington 0
A much changed team, due to injuries and absence, put in a great, gutsy team effort with numerous outstanding individual performances where three points would have been a fairer reward for the team work and endeavour expended.
Wellington hit the bar on the half hour mark but, apart from that, the Wellington keeper was much the busier making several good saves to keep the Steelmen at bay.
New signing Simeon Jackson, playing up with Naveed with Piggo in support, caused all sorts of problems with all three players unlucky not to get the goal our play deserved.
As the game progressed so Bilston increased the pressure and despite McPike netting, after the keeper parried a Jackson shot, he was adjudged offside, much to everyone’s frustration.
But a clean sheet, a point against a decent Wellington side and a good hard working display made it an entertaining 0-0 game to watch.
We go to Smethwick next week and, with similar effort, we can look forward to three points.
Well done gentlemen, great commitment, great team effort, great to watch.
