Everybody played their part but REANEY was chosen as MOM
Full time and Frome deservedly get a point, Great performance from a team who wouldnt give up. COYR
16.54 Nearly a winner for Brackley as Frome again somehow keep the ball out and hack a goalmouth scramble off the line
16.53 GOAL Chitty with freekick, Bennett flicks on and Reaney fires home a superb effort on half volley into top corner from edge of area!
16.46 Another exaggerated fall and Cooper clears superbly off his line with his head from No.11 free kick
16.44 Thomson picks up a yellow after being so unlucky with a run where he beat challenges
16.42 Hosts falling to the floor just a bit to easily to con referee on more than one occasion
16.39 Flockton picks up a booking for dissent
16.37 Lucky escape as cross from right is headed goalwards by No.10 which Chitty reacts well to save and follow up is cleared off the line by Cooper
16.35 Long range effort by No.7 is held by Chitty low by his right post
16.31 Triple substitution for Frome with Benison, Ballinger and Matthews replacing Smith, Hulbert and Lapham
16.26 Hosts still look susceptible at the back with one or two hairy moments to the dislike of home contingent
16.24 No.9 shoots from 25 yards and is deflected wide by Flockton. Resulting corner is superbly held by Chitty
16.21 From resulting freekick by No.7 ball is headed well wide by No.6
16.21 Bennett picks up booking for strong tackle
16.19 Hulbert does well getting past two defenders but takes wrong option and tries to turn again in area instead of shooting and is dispossessed.
16.07 GOAL No.9 receives ball in area on left and smashes it home past Chitty
16.06 And we are underway…
No changes for Frome at halftime as they retake the field – lets hope for more of the same this half
Half time whistle goes and Frome more than deserve to be level and with more luck could have gone in in front
15.48 Another excellent move saw Evans release Thomson with chip over defence and after beating full back his superb low cross just escapes Hulbert and Perrott
15.44 Perrott releases Evans on right who drills in a low cross at pace but Hulbert misses his kick and a great chance goes begging
15.42 Smith picks up a booking for late tackle
15.41 Cooper slips just at wrong time and No. 9 set free down left and his cross finds the unmarked No. 10 who heads woefully wide
15.35 No. 7 gets in cross from right which is headed goalwards by 11 and just as No. 10 about to shoot Bennett denies him with great tackle
15.30 Perrott with ball forward which Hulbert outpaces home defence on left but stumbles at crucial moment and its cleared. Home defence does look shaky at times
15.29 Defence holding strong as Brackley start to up their game
15.28 Handball given in Fromes favour and no.2 picks up a booking for stopping Robins taking quick freekick
15.17 Evans does well to cross from left and defence cant clear and Smith on volley heading goalbound is deflected clear
15.15 Deep cross from 11 and Chitty fails to gather but is relieved to hear whistle go for freekick for foul
15.09 Strong wind not going to make this game easy
15.07 Good first five mins for Frome and have kept possession well with Thomson getting some time and space on the ball
