CLARBESTON ROAD and Merlins Bridge were forced to settle for a share of the points on Saturday (Jan 15) as their game finished 1-1.
The two sides had met at the Racecourse in November with that game finishing 3-3 and it was another close game on Saturday.
Matthew D’Ivry opened the scoring for the Wizards inside 5 minutes after latching onto a short back pass and firing into the top corner.
Will Haworth missed great chance to double the lead for the visitors and at the other end Ben John forced Bridge keeper James Dickson into a save.
Within seconds of the restart, Dickson was again called into action in what was the save of the afternoon.
Midway through the half, Clarbeston Road were level as Charles George powered in a header from a set piece.
Shortly afterwards, Ben John had a goal disallowed for Clarbeston Road but there were no further chances and a draw was a fair result.
On Saturday, January 22, Merlins Bridge travel to Goodwick United while Clarbeston Road travel to Fishguard.
