So where do you start with this game of two halves?

After withstanding early pressure involving cross after cross into the Bilston box, Dan Elwell fired home to give the visitors the lead after growing into the game and looking dangerous on a few occasions prior to the goal.

Kizza Clarke then bagged a second for the visitors and with the home side looking vulnerable, Dan Elwell popped up with the best goal of the night, controlling a long goal kick before firing home from 20 yards out.

The second half was a different story and there is no doubt the substitute Bridgnorth winger caused most of the problems for the Steelmen, bagging a goal early in the half to bring the home side back into the game and a real threat for most of the second half.

With just under 20 minutes to go, and just moments after Matty Barnett had gone close to a 4th, the home side scored again to set up a frantic finale.

With just over 10 minutes left the equaliser arrived with a header into the far corner of the Bilston net, again shortly after Bilston went close with Tshane Clayton heading just over the bar.

The Steelmen held out for the remaining 10 minutes for a point that could so easily have been 3 – but while the focus may be on giving up two points from a very strong position at half-time, we must look at the positives and get behind the youngsters as they face these harsh lessons.

Nobody said it was easy being a Bilston fan!

Next up is Shifnal Town at Queen Street on Saturday, see you there!
