Moors Claim a Point on their Travels...
Goalkeeper Ryan Boot recorded his 50th clean sheet for the club as Moors earned a hard-fought 0-0 draw at Weymouth on Saturday.
It was a landmark game for the man between the sticks who has now racked up half a century of clean sheets in just 124 appearances for the Moors.
In a game of two halves, Moors' Nathan Cameron had a goal disallowed in the first half, while Andrew Dallas crashed a second-half penalty against the bar for the Terras.
The visitors enjoyed the better of the chances in the opening stages, coming close on a couple of occasions within the first 10 minutes.
Jordan Cranston’s corner was deflected onto the bar whilst Cameron Coxe arriving late into the box could only divert Adam Rooney’s low cross wide of the near post.
Weymouth then went close on the half-hour mark, after a good spell of possession, Ollie Harfield’s cross found Calvin Brooks but from a few yards out, his effort trundled wide.
Then from another Cranston corner, Cameron turned the ball home but keeper Ethan Ross was deemed to have been fouled in the build-up and the goal was chalked off. The game all square at the break.
Jimmy Shan’s men then survived a scare shortly after the interval as Dallas saw his penalty cannon off the underside of the bar after Cameron had initially tripped the striker in the box.
The Terras were more dominant in the second half, but Moors’ backline stood strong, Kyle Howkins in particular, with a very solid display.
But on the counter, the visitors were always dangerous, and Cranston with a curling effort forced Ross into a smart save late on.
However, that was as close as Moors came to breaking the deadlock as Shan’s charges came away from Dorset with a hard-earned point.
