BALTI SPORTS 1 PORTLAND UTD RES 1

Tuesday 28th August 2018

DEREK Wall grabbed a point for Portland United Reserves with a late goal to cancel out an Oscar Preece header at Weymouth College in a match that both sides will justifiably regret not winning in the Dorset Premier League.

Balti boasted new signing Sean Stewart in their starting line-up, after he signed for the club on dual registration from Dorchester.

Both sides had numerous chances throughout the match that went begging, with Wall proving a good threat for Portland and Danny Andrews being a consistent thorn in the Blues’ side.

Preece got the breakthrough in the 67th minute when Balti broke down the right-hand side and he headed in a pin-point header past Ross Jones in the Portland goal.

The Blues came back and, in a frantic finish, Wall saw his looped header secure a point with almost the last touch of the match.

After the match, Balti Sports’ boss Marco Nott said: “I think we just edged it, but it is always gutting to concede right at the end.

“He is a threat that lad up front (Wall), he caused a threat all night.”

Portland manager Faulker, said: “I did think it was fair. Although we conceded some chances in the second half they were on top for a good portion and we dug in.”
