County Senior League Div One - Game 13
29/01/22 - Denaby Main vs Wombwell Town
In windy conditions that stopped both sides playing any kind of good football a goal-less draw was seen as the best outcome.
The game certainly didn't feel like your typical nil nil bore draw as both teams frantically battled against each other throughout.
As chances went the first half belonged to the home side with the wind behind their backs, but goalkeeper Jono Davis was untroubled with just two efforts sailing over the crossbar.
The game could have changed on 22 minutes when Josh Dixon was fouled with studs up against his shin, however the opposition player only received a yellow.
Wombwell Town faired better in the second half with the wind behind their backs with Will Harling hitting the roof of the net directly from a corner ten minutes into the second half.
The crowd made their loudest noise of the afternoon on 64 minutes when they shouted for a penalty after their man went to ground after losing control of the ball under pressure from the defensive threat of Joe Egan.
Substitute home keeper AJ Nota produced the only save of the afternoon late on as he denied Matty Thornton from inside the penalty area.
The draw saw the first 0-0 in the Wellers' short history and could prove a crucial point when reviewing the season after all their matches are played.
