FOOTBALL - Bromsgrove Sporting concede at the death in Kettering draw

BROMSGROVE Sporting were denied a first away win since October after conceding a last-minute goal in a 1-1 draw at Kettering Town.

Sporting were on course to take all three points after Prince Henry opened the scoring after just four minutes only for Daniel Jarvis to equalise in injury time at Latimer Park.

And the result means Bromsgrove sit 16th in the Southern League Premier Central table nine points clear of the relegation zone.

The Rouslers made the perfect start when Henry broke the deadlock on four minutes with a finish from close range after Kettering failed to clear their lines at a corner.

And Sporting almost doubled their lead only for Conor Tee’s free-kick from just outside the penalty area to come back off the crossbar.

The visitors went close again soon after as Kettering goalkeeper Dan Jezeph made a superb save to keep out Luke Rowe’s header.

Kettering improved after the break as Rhys Sharpe saw his powerful effort well-saved by Sporting stopper Ollie Taylor.

The Rouslers were denied by the woodwork again later in the half as Rowe’s speculative free-kick from distance hit the post with Jezeph well off his line.

However, Kettering snatched a point two minutes into injury time when substitute Jarvis scored a fine solo goal to deny Sporting a first away win in over three months.

Bromsgrove are next in action at home to Leamington on Saturday, February 3 with kick-off at 3pm at the Victoria Ground.
