Rushall Olympic 1 Peterborough Sports 1 - Report and pictures

Sam Whittall`s equaliser, three minutes from time, earned Rushall Olympic a well earned point in this highly entertaining encounter against Peterborough Sports.

In a game of two halves it was the home side who enjoyed the better of the opening forty five minutes carving out several good opportunities but it was the away side who had a great chance after just six minutes when Mamadu Sani was denied by a great save from Jonathan Flatt.

At the other end a great break from Rackeem Reid saw him run from inside his own half but from the edge of the penalty area he rolled his shot passed the far post.

The home side then enjoyed a good spell with Nehemia Zazi seeing his close range shot well saved by Lewis Elsom and the home side went even closer when Tyler Lyttle`s cross found Reid whose shot was pushed onto the post by Elsom.

Six minutes before the break the Pics were unlucky when Alex Moore`s inswinging corner was headed against the bar by Orrin Pendley

Five minutes into the second half the visitors were ahead when Jordan Nicholson`s low cross was pushed out by Flatt only for Sani to tap home from close range.

It was now the visitors who were getting on top and Brad McGowan saw his header pushed away by Flatt and things were made even more difficult for the home side when they were reduced to ten men following a challenge by Desuen Martin who was shown a straight red card.

The home side though showed great character and three minutes from time drew level when Sam Whittall took a pass from Riccardo Calder and fired home to earn his side a well deserved point
