East Harling 0-0 Poringland Wanderers
The first team entertained league cup finalists Poringland Wanderers at Church Road on Saturday looking to end their recent bad form.
The home side gave a full debut to Jake Scent and welcomed back Tarft to the squad for his first start in several weeks.
The away side started the brighter and nearly took an early lead when a defensive pass went astray and the visiting striker was unlucky to see his long range effort come back off the post.
Moments later a Scent delivery found skipper Durrant alone in the box but he headed well wide of the target.
Tarft then saw an effort fly over before Johnson was just beaten to the ball by the on rushing away keeper.
Poringland hit back immediately when the striker beat Woodcock to the ball and thought he had scored only for Durrant to race back and clear the ball off the line.
That was to be that in a dull first half with both sides struggling to get a real grip on the game.
Half time came and after some harsh words in the dressing room the home side came out looking a completely different side.
In fact, they dictated the game from the restart right through to the end.
Scent and Senior linked up well to send an inviting cross into the box which was headed back by Allin yet somehow Johnson headed over from a yard out with the goal gaping.
Scent then saw a free kick tipped over before the ref waved away huge penalty appeals after a suspicious looking handball in the box.
Johnson was then replaced by Holt in the home attack.
Senior was then caught late and had to be replaced by Turner-Saint.
The youngster nearly made himself a hero late on but his powerful strike was bravely blocked by a defender.
Sivier was then bought on in place of Morris as Bareham was thrown forward for one last throw of the dice for the home side.
The goal they wanted so nearly came when Tarft saw a strike well saved before Durrant saw his goal bound header brilliantly cleared off the line as the game ended in a stalemate.
Next up is a game against high flying Yelverton at Church Road.
