Vets pegged back by late equaliser

Vets disappointed to concede late equaliser, but register their first league point.

Scole Vets travelled to fellow promoted team Wensum Albion, looking for their first league points. Reverting initially to a 4-4-2 formation, Scole dominated early possession but could not convert any chances. Wensum were happy to play on the break and actually opened the scoring, their central striker latching onto a long ball, with Scole’s defence not holding their line. Wensum could have had another from a similar break, but despite these chances, Scole still had the majority of possession and played the better football. Switching to 3-5-2, Scole negated Wensum’s attacking threat, and equalised when Ruddock tucked home Goreham’s square pass. Further pressure on the Wensum goal continued, on another day Goreham would have had a Hat-trick, but somehow these efforts were kept out. A second goal did follow with Hughes’ looping header from a corner, again with Goreham making his presence felt.

The midfield was working better and created lots of chances which really should have been taken, Scole were left to rue these, a free header from a free kick saw the hosts draw level right at the death.
